Ceiling Ideas. Friday , November 23rd , 2018 - 22:27:12 PM
Talking to different home builders can be another way you can get basement ceiling ideas or learn creative ways to decorate an unfinished basement. Home builders know how to remodel and finish a basement at the lowest cost possible and still make it look like a thousand bucks. You might consider making the basement a bar area or even a party room for the weekends. This is a great way to change the basement and make the most use of the space. You might even find you absorb all of the cost in the remodeling project because you will be spending more time at home and going out much less.
So put away that outdated beige, white or cream ceiling idea.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.
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.
Another way to find excellent basement remodeling ideas is by looking on the web and through home magazines. Many people see decorating ideas in magazines that are super simple to follow. You don't have to copy an exact design but you can get excellent ideas for decorating. The web is a convenient way to find ideas for remodeling and basement finishing ideas from home. You don't have to travel outside of your home to find ways to decorate and redesign the basement. In addition, the web allows you to get ideas for design when it is convenient for you. This means if you are extremely busy and only have late night hours available, ideas are still available.
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!
Now it's time to talk about that \"ceiling-scape\"! What is the \"ceiling-scape you ask? Well that's my new word for what's really UGLY overhead in the basement, the UGLY that's going to need to be hidden away from our view!
