So put away that outdated beige, white or cream ceiling idea. Put away that stippled/popcorn type finish. Most people neglect their ceilings when they're redecorating their homes. Why hold yourself back? Imagine having a brightly colored ceiling that, no matter what the weather may be like, will be something you can look up, smile at and admire.
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.
Many of the more popular basement ceiling ideas incorporate the use of a drop ceiling, which comes in many different styles and is easy to install - in fact, it's so simple that you might just as well take on the task of installing it as a DIY project. You might also take a look at suspended ceilings, which are similarly simple to install and can offer an even greater degree of acoustic insulation. Suspended ceilings are made up of tiles that attach to a metal grid, a 3-dimensional frame that's light and easy to handle.
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 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.
