Converting your basement into a finished space is a fantastic idea – so you tell yourself . . . but how do you get started?
Here are 5 creative basement ceiling ideas to help you start planning your new basement. And they are all affordable – and
easy to do yourself!
1. Suspended Ceilings
Workout Rooms, Playrooms, Multi-Purpose Rooms
Suspended ceilings are one of the most popular basement ceilings. Consisting of a simple grid and lightweight tiles or panels,
a suspended ceiling conveniently covers exposed beams, ductwork and electrical wiring, while allowing easy access for maintenance.
Today’s suspended ceilings offer sophisticated looks in both black and white with 3-D profiles. The clean, bright appeal of
classic white tiles works well in workout rooms and playrooms since the white panels offer a higher light reflectance.
2. Wood Ceilings
Go from drab to fab with these creative basement ceiling ideas for the home or business office. Create a stylish atmosphere
with the dark, luxurious looks of walnut in WoodHaven planks. If you prefer a more relaxed work space, Country Classic planks blend well with a rustic theme. Country Classic comes in white, but you can paint or stain the planks to match any décor.
3. Metal or Black Ceiling Tiles
Home Theater, Media Room
One of the hottest basement remodeling ideas is to convert unused basement space into a spectacular home theater or media
room. You might want to re-create the look of an old movie palace with the help of a tin ceiling. Choose a copper or brass finish or paint tiles in a flat, dark color that won’t reflect a lot of light. For a more upscale,
contemporary look, consider HomeStyle Fine Fissured black ceiling tiles, which look elegant and absorb up to 60 percent of sounds that strike their surface – perfect for late-night screenings with
family and friends.
4. Unique Ceiling Looks
Man Caves, Mom Caves
Man caves or “mom” caves are popular retreats within the home where individuals can relax and enjoy “me” time. For a unique
space that reflects your personality, consider painting ceiling tiles your favorite shade – like this Metallaire Hammered Border in a vibrant red. You might choose to “Zen out” under these coffered ceiling panels in sleek black or create a “beach-y” theme with WoodHaven weathered ceiling planks.
5. Country Ceiling Looks
Even though your guest room is in the basement, you can still make visitors feel right at home with a bright space that looks
inviting and comfortable. Beveled tongue & groove ceiling planks in WoodHaven White Wash or a beadboard ceiling in pristine white both bring a cozy, vintage look to a basement guest room.
Get inspired with these creative basement ceiling ideas to design a space that suits the needs of you and your family. Whether
you decide to transform this extra living space into a home office, theater, playroom or personal sanctuary, make it a reflection
of your taste and style. Once you do, chances are, you’ll be spending a lot of time there!
