Remember to tie a piece of caution tape on any water shutoffs, gas shutoffs, outside faucet shut offs, or anything else that you will want to access later after the drywall is permanently hung! Otherwise you will never be able to access these important items at a later date. Just tie caution tape right on the handles or the center of all of the items you will need to access later, then when the drywall ceiling is being hung, just cut a 2\" hole out of the drywall so that the caution tape can be pulled through that hole. After the drywall is finished and paint-ready we will be installing finished plastic access panels at each of these locations so we can easily access all of our mechanical items forever!
Another reason to buy that can of paint is the fact that a colored ceiling softens the sharp contrast offered by your walls. For most people, walking into a room with dark red walls topped with an intensely white ceiling can be almost shocking! It isn't comfortable and cozy at all. To solve this problem, opt for a ceiling color that blends better with your wall color. If you have walls done in shades of jade, why not select a ceiling in ivory or beige? It's a softer hue that complements rather than contrasts with your walls.
Solution? Simply \"fir-down\"(or make lower) these sections of \"ceiling-scape\" with 2\"x4\"'s! Just nail-up long 16'-0\" sections of 2\"x4\"'s from end-to-end in all of these areas, running them parallel with the duct-work runs (perpendicular to the existing floor joists). By doing this we make these sections of ceiling 1-1/2\" lower, and this gets all of our framing below all the pipes and wires that used to be our drywall's road! We can now drywall right over everything that used to be in our way with ease!
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.
You expect ceilings to be a dull part of the home. It's what you saw around you as you grew up. Nobody was adventurous with their ceiling color - good old white or maybe even a daring cream (yes that was sarcasm) is what you came to expect in terms of the heights of ceiling décor. Your ceiling doesn't need to be boring however; as a matter of fact it can be a talking point of the room if you really want it to be. How? Simply by adding some wonderful color!
Another basement ceiling idea is to install dry-walled ceiling which imparts itself to various options of basement remodeling. It requires much hard work, labor and rental equipments to install a dry-walled ceiling. It is also easy to finish and decorate. If access to pipes and wires running along your ceiling is needed, you can either integrate it in the design or provide an entrance to it. To highlight the ceiling, you may use trim and attractive tiles for a complete finished look.
Quote from creative ceiling tile ideas :
The ceiling tiles could be walnut, glass, bamboo or timber. They may be laid in various patterns. It's very important to select light colours so as to decorate the space. Occasionally rather than demolishing a classic ceiling, tiles may be put over the surface. One other important facet will be to adhere to the manufacturers education on decorations.
