One of the most important things to consider when remodeling your basement is the basement ceiling. People find basement ceilings a bit hideous and if you are of the same opinion, then you need to do something about it. Most people want their basement to be warm and cozy, instead of that desolate look often acquainted with an unfinished basement. There are different basement ceiling ideas to make your ceiling a place that you want it to be. Basement ceilings may either be dry walled or suspended. You can choose which kind to install but always remember to add decorative touches in order to make them look exactly like any other rooms in your home.
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!
We then entertained the idea of using T1-11 tongue and groove boards, again we would need to move pipes and ducts and the cost was a bit high. After some thought the look of this product just wasn't what he wanted.
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.
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.
I helped a friend of mine finish his basement but he was not sure what type of ceiling he wanted to put in. There are several options like traditional drywall, tongue and groove boards, acoustic ceiling tiles and drop ceiling, so we analyzed each option.
Quote from Wood Ceiling Beams Ideas :
2. Beams need A structure designed to encourage them. To support the burden of the very significant chunks of timber, the builder will also have to design the arrangement in a sturdier manner, to help the weight. . Many times the ceiling beam length can't be attained without risk of sagging ceilings and trusses, a very costly issue.
