2. Ornamental Value of Tin Ceilings Panels come in just about any design or color so the ornamental value is very great. They make basic colors in gold, silver, black, white and some other basic colors but many companies will custom paint any color you want. This makes tin ceilings available in any color that you need. If you choose to go with a basic gold or silver then you can paint your walls any color. Custom colors are a little more daring but can ad a stunning focal point to your favorite room.
The wonderful thing about drywall is its unique versatility - unlike prefabricated ceiling panels, once you've installed drywall, you can paint it in any color you like, meaning that you can realize the most whacky of your basement ceiling ideas, be they painting patterns or glow in the dark stars on your ceiling. On the other hand, drywall is quite a bit more complicated than ceiling panels when it comes to installation, and the time it takes to complete the installation of drywalling could span into months (as opposed to the mere weeks that ceiling panel installation is likely to call for). Remember when painting that the color you choose will have a very powerful impact on the atmosphere of the room. It's ideal to go for light colors, such as eggshell, peach or baby blue, as warm, dark colors, such as red or brown, will lend the entire space an oppressive feel - something claustrophobics really won't appreciate when they're already in a confined space underground.
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.
Remember to tie a piece of caution tape on any water shutoffs, gas shutoffs, outside faucet shut offs, or anything else that you will want to access later after the drywall is permanently hung! Otherwise you will never be able to access these important items at a later date. Just tie caution tape right on the handles or the center of all of the items you will need to access later, then when the drywall ceiling is being hung, just cut a 2\" hole out of the drywall so that the caution tape can be pulled through that hole. After the drywall is finished and paint-ready we will be installing finished plastic access panels at each of these locations so we can easily access all of our mechanical items forever!
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!
Suspended basement ceilings are commercial in nature but there are also advantages. The structure helps hamper noise levels especially if you are there in your basement working. Moreover, the uppermost portion of the ceiling can be accessed with convenience. If wires and ducts run on top of your ceiling, having a suspended ceiling makes them easily accessible.
