Ok you have designed your basement and come up with a winning floor plan! You have corrected any moisture or water problems. You laid-out your walls using the floor plan and permanently chalked lined those wall locations on the concrete floor in locations where they will be built.
Another basement ceiling option is to install ceiling mirrors. Installing mirrors on the ceiling enhances the lighting that you have in your basement. You can use mirrored tiles in an ingenious way for your basement to appear larger than its actual size. This is an effective optical illusion for smaller basements. Make sure that your ceiling is not so low to avoid accidentally smashing up the mirrors.
We then looked into the standard drop ceiling, it is one of the easiest solutions to covering basement joists but again the thought of hanging and cutting rails did not appeal to him and again the look of this type of ceiling reminded him of an old office building. It seemed that the cost was a factor as well.
Ok, so not everyone happens to be a huge fan of colored ceilings. In fact, some readers might give you that bemused look if you give them this tip. But put those eyebrows down first - here are some reasons why a colored ceiling isn't such a bad idea at all...
A dropped or suspended ceiling is another option for your basement. These ceilings have a grid work of metal bars in the shape of an upside-down T, these are suspended on wires from the overhead joists. A dropped ceiling is great because there is no need for you to move wires, pipes or ducts and the joists don't have to be straight for the finished ceiling to look flat. This type of basement ceiling finishing will give you easy access to heating, cooling and electrical systems. Adding some lighting fixtures can be done with ease as well. In addition to that, a dropped ceiling shields unwanted noise from above. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of a dropped or suspended ceiling is that it eats up too much head space so if you already have a very low basement ceiling then you might want to look into this first.
Another way to find excellent basement remodeling ideas is by looking on the web and through home magazines. Many people see decorating ideas in magazines that are super simple to follow. You don't have to copy an exact design but you can get excellent ideas for decorating. The web is a convenient way to find ideas for remodeling and basement finishing ideas from home. You don't have to travel outside of your home to find ways to decorate and redesign the basement. In addition, the web allows you to get ideas for design when it is convenient for you. This means if you are extremely busy and only have late night hours available, ideas are still available.
