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.
Acoustic ceiling tiles was another option, the tiles are easy to cut and their small size makes them very easy to handle. They are installed by stapling them to the furring strips but again we had to move pipes and ducts in order to provide suitable framing for a nice flat ceiling.
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.
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?
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!

Quote from Great Room Ceiling Ideas :
For a Simple way Paint them individually and then build. It could not be simpler. Painting the ceiling or wall supporting the pierced medallion or cast a complementary contrasting shade can make an incredibly crisp and comprehensive 2-color layout. The identical thing could be achieved for pierced seat railings and frieze moldings. Metallic foils, such as gold leaf, may also be utilized for extra flash.
Recessed lighting. They're economical and simple to set up during construction and permit for infinite customization to put light where you need it. The only drawback is that they are modern looking. After the remainder of the room includes a great Victorian or farmhouse texture, occasionally those lights can stand out like a sore thumb. There's a solution. Maybe not for everybody or every area, but if you despise the plain contemporary appearance of your recessed lighting, then attempt ceiling medallions made specifically with recessed lighting in your mind.
