Ceiling. Tuesday , May 15th , 2018 - 11:05:29 AM
What are we going to do about these duct-work runs, and all these pipes and wires running 10 different ways? We can't just cover them with new drywall! What is our next plan of action for hiding the UGLY \"ceiling-scape\" of our basement to make it both functional and pleasing to the eyes?
1. Victorian Era Tin Ceilings They will take you back to a different era in time when life was at a slower pace and style grace still abound. They were originally used in the Victorian-Era. They were made to replace a must heavier type plaster ceiling. Over time it seems to me that design got pushed to the back burner and people just went for larger homes. I myself had rather have a smaller home with plenty of architectural detail. Splurge on your interior design using tin ceilings in at least one room and I think with the end result you will be glad you did.
Firstly, they may make any room seem a little bit smaller, but this ultimately creates an illusion of a more intimate space. This can be especially good if your house happens to have a very high ceiling. It would lend a bit of comfort instead of that intimidating feel you get from seeing too much space in a room. Bedrooms and studies can also benefit from some ceiling color because it gives the room a cozy feel to it.
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...
You don't have to limit yourself to plain, solid colors either. If you have that creative or artistic streak in you, why not paint your ceiling in pictures or themes? For a nursery, a great idea would be to paint a picture of a perfect summer sky in azure blue complete with some clouds. Sounds enchanting right? Complement this theme with a carpet in grass green and add some garden themes on the walls as well. Might as well go all the way right? Don't worry, even adults are sure to enjoy scenes like this from time to time. It's a refreshing break from your regular bedroom too!
And then one day shopping with his family he saw what a store did with their ceiling and that was basically nothing. He asked the owner what they did and he said they basically cleaned the pipes and duct work, primered them and then used an airless sprayer to paint everything one color. It was perfect, we would not have to move any thing, no framing was necessary and to beat all it allowed for more head room.
