Looking up with Armstrong Ceilings for the home Basement Ceilings with Special Features Hi, when you are ready to remodel your basement, one of the areas you will need to consider, besides the walls and the flooring, is the ceiling. Now before you think drywall, let me give you two very good reasons to consider a different type of ceiling: looks and performance. You will find them both in an Armstrong ceiling. Let's start with looks. There are dozens of exciting ceiling styles to chose from: traditional, modern, wood-look, metal, raised panels and more. Many of these options are paintable, so you can choose the style you want and paint the ceiling to match your decor. A decorative ceiling is a fun way to continue the design theme of your room. Try wood-look planks for a country feel, or how about beadboard for a cottage vibe, or go traditional with ceiling panels that look like stucco, plaster or have a textured design. Now for the other reason you want to choose a decorative ceiling: performance. Armstrong basement ceilings do more than look pretty, they actually help improve the comfort of your space. You'll find products that resist mold and mildew, help reduce sound, and add light back into your room. For mold and mildew resistance look for ceiling products enhanced with BioBlock. This is an antimicrobial treatment that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew and other types of bacteria, ideal for basements. Planning a game room or home theater? Find basement ceilings that help reduce the sound within your room, or limit the sound from traveling upstairs. I recommend the HomeStyle collection for this feature. To add more light to a finished basement, install ceiling panels that have a high light reflectance. This can reduce the amount of lighting fixtures you need and save energy. One more thing about basement ceiling panels, they are easy to move out of the way, to get to the pipes and wires that are usually run between the floor joists. Looks and performance in a basement ceiling, what a great combination. Armstrong is just giving you another reason to look up.
Armstrong ceilings offer great features that elevate both the basement's look and performance better than drywall. WoodHaven and HomeStyle collections add options for your basement's look, while BioBlock can protect your ceiling from mold for enduring performance.
