Ceiling Ideas. Friday , November 23rd , 2018 - 22:16:32 PM
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.
Coffered ceilings, on the other hand, are very similar in technical terms to suspended ceilings, but differ from them in being decorated with ornate recessed panels, offering a more corporate appearance, ideal for those who plan to turn their basement into a home office or formal study. The drawback of plain old suspended ceilings, on the other hand, lies in the industrial look they tend to give a room, which can be great if you're into Manhattan-style architecture and not-so-great if your house has been designed to look like a Tuscan villa. For practical purposes, they're great, as one can quickly access any wires pipes they conceal by snapping away segments of the ceiling. Most building codes require at least 90 inches of headroom for a finished basement, so in the event that your basement has a low ceiling, you have two options - either dig up the floor, or go for drywall.
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.
Ok you have designed your basement and come up with a winning floor plan! You have corrected any moisture or water problems. You laid-out your walls using the floor plan and permanently chalked lined those wall locations on the concrete floor in locations where they will be built.
3. Efficiency Value of Tin Ceilings Besides the ornamental beauty of the tin ceilings they also ad efficiency to your heating system. Even after your heating unit kicks off the tin ceiling will help hold the heat longer. Tin tiles beside and above your fireplace can catch and reflect heat. They are also valuable for their flame resistance.
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.
