Deciding to remodel your home is a difficult decision, partially because you are faced with so many choices. Being able to choose almost every aspect of your new renovation is both a blessing and a curse. One of the most important aspects of a basement finishing project is the ceiling. Unfortunately, this is often the most difficult decision to make as well.
Basement finishing is ordinarily confronted with a unique set of challenges. These can include dampness of the basement ambiance, hanging or low ceilings, and attaining the necessary permits. Although each of these problems can be overcome with the assistance of an experienced remodeling contractor, they do not come without struggle.
Deciding what kind of ceiling to install is often greatest challenge of them all. One reason this is true is that remodeling contractors must consider various infrastructural property such as the duct works, electrical wiring, and the water pipes mentioned above. The right ceiling will perform its duty without interfering in the infrastructural property or the ability to install features homeowners might desire.
Choosing the Right Ceiling the Finish your Basement
The goal of basement finishing is to provide a polished aesthetic to the basement without interfering or inconveniencing. The best solution is the use of drywall ceilings. This consists of drywall ceilings alongside some strategically placed access panels which allow the service panels to get into the ceilings without the need to cut through.
Aluminum grids and plain ceiling tiles are then used to remodel the basement. When used for remodeling, these materials can result in average, low-end looks to the basements. If you are looking for a more elegant look, you may consider using textured creamy tiles and wood instead of plain ceiling tiles and Aluminum grids. This can result in a shoji-like aesthetic, which is very transparent and lets light into the basement.
Suspended ceilings allow for the beatification of ceilings by basement remodeling contractors and homeowners. Remodeling contractors can work with you to install unique features into the ceiling of your basement. One example of a unique feature is a skylight that allows light to pass through extremely translucent tiles.
