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, we bet you’ll be spending a lot of time there !
Basement Ceiling Ideas
IDEA #1: SUSPENDED CEILINGS
Gym, Playroom, Multi-Purpose Room Suspended ceilings are one of the most popular basement ceilings. Consisting of a simple grid and lightweight tiles or panels,
a suspended ceiling 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.
IDEA #2 WOOD CEILINGS
Home Office Go from drab to fab with wood ceilings for the home office. Create a stylish atmosphere with the dark, luxurious look 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.
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 could 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 light.
For a more upscale, contemporary look, consider HomeStyle Fine Fissured black ceiling panels, which look elegant and absorb
up to 60 percent of sounds that strike their surface – perfect for late-night screenings with family and friends.
Living Room, Man Cave Who can't use extra living space? Adding a living room or man cave in the basement creates another space for family members
to "get away" and relax.
For a unique space that reflects your personality, consider painting ceiling tiles your favorite shade – like Metallaire panels
in a vibrant red. You might choose to “Zen out” under coffered ceiling panels in sleek black. Or create a “beachy” theme with
WoodHaven weathered ceiling planks.
IDEA #5 COUNTRY CEILING LOOKS
Guest Rooms 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.
