Well we are going to FRAME our way right around all of it, and it's really very simple to do! Looking at it now it might seem a little overwhelming, but what we will do is break the ceiling framing down into a few stages, starting with the framing of the duct-work 1st!
A drywall ceiling required that we relocate most pipes and ducts into the joist cavities, or out to the perimeter of the room. Then we would have to place a wood frame to box in around anything that was still hanging below the line of the ceiling joists. Then we would have to place wooden furring strips where extra strength was be needed. It is necessary to use the furring and the framed boxes in order to provide a solid backing for the finished ceiling treatment. Drywall seemed like a good choice because of the low cost of the material but we weren't to thrilled about taping and sanding it later.
If you are looking for basement finishing ideas, one of the things you can do is look at homes for sale. Look for homes with a finished basement in the sale papers. Obviously, you aren't going to buy a home but you just want ideas. However, open houses are a great place to see a basement and what the seller has done with it. Open houses are free for people to come in and look around. This will require you to travel around to different homes but it is a great way to see some of the different decorating techniques people use. In most cases, you will find great ideas because sellers want to sell their home and they go out of their way for it to look nice.
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.
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.
Basement ceiling finishing is not that difficult except if you do not have any experience at all when it comes to this kind of project. You may want to read about the general types of basement ceilings to get you started. The first one is the dry-walled ceiling. The drawback in this is that it requires a lot of labor and some rental equipment. It's harder to install and it can be quite messy than basement ceiling finishing systems. If you're worried about having access to pipes and wires running along your ceiling then you can integrate it in the design or provide an entrance. To emphasize the ceiling, you can use trimmings and attractive tiles.
