Once you have nailed up the drywall you will need to tape it to cover the cracks between sheets of drywall and the places where you nailed the drywall to the frame. After it is sanded smooth you can apply the paint or acoustical material. An easier solution for ideas for basement ceiling is a suspended ceiling. Here again you will need a frame to suspend your ceiling tiles from and a frame around the outside to determine the area you need covered. There are many advantages to the suspended ceiling. One big advantage is your accessibility to the wiring and lighting in your basement ceiling. These are only two ideas for basement ceilings to consider. You need to consider the best one for your needs and pocketbook. If you want to check on other ideas the best way is to use your computer and go to the web sites that offer more basement ceiling ideas.
With so many reproduced tiles available it may get a little tricky to tell the vintage pieces from the newer models. Older ceiling tin is heavier than the newer version and has surfaces showing lots of rust, dents, chippy paint, rough scaly edges and sharp nail holes. Although reproductions are made to look like the real thing, you will notice that the new items are lighter and smoother and are simply too perfect. Also worth mentioning is that sometimes old tiles appear new when they are not. This can happen when a vintage piece is cleaned and refinished or an original tile is framed with an old door or window trim.
Another way to make the ceiling seem higher or lower is with molding. You can paint molding the same color as the ceiling to make the room smaller, and paint it the same color as the walls, to make the room seem larger, and the ceiling further away. Ceilings are a large and important feature in a space, and should not be ignored just because they are remote, and difficult to reach. By using contrast, unity, and color, it is possible to use the ceiling to add a whole new level to your decorative designs.
Many artists like to paint on vintage ceiling tiles. One artist I am familiar with, looks for tins that are more than 100 years old, in good shape and require minimal prep work. The artist I am referring to generally passes up tiles that have holes or dents, preferring instead pieces with unusual designs or shapes which inspire her to use the background as part of her subject matter and design work.
Do you want to go with ceiling tiles which has some sort of a design on the or just a plain ceiling tile? Should you decide to go with a design keep the design toned down you don't want to make the ceiling a focal point you just want to make it tie into your design thyme. Having a design or decoration that is complex may be to much and ultimately ruin your room deign that you were after. You don't want a design or decoration on your ceiling that you will regret later.
