Over the years, Country Creek Builders has made suggestions to clients about unique alternatives to basement ceilings.
We are sharing a few options that hopefully will help you make your finished basement a work of art.
Tray ceiling: This is a recessed or inverted ceiling. This type of ceiling features a center section that can be several inches higher than the rest of the room’s surrounding areas. This particular ceiling design can create a focal point in the room. This happens because there is a raised area which can be an ideal spot for different lighting options.
Barrel ceiling: If you are looking for something extremely different a barrel ceiling is the way to go. By creating an arch that doesn’t have a peak like a typical vaulted ceiling, this creates a unique architectural finish to your basement. This type of ceiling gives the room a sense of airiness which can be good in a basement. It also makes your basement look more interesting and draws a person attention upward to admire the beautiful finished look.
Coffered ceiling: This type of ceiling can be created to make an infinite number of shapes and patterns. Different materials can be used as well such as; plaster and various kinds of wood. Once of the nice features of this type of ceiling is that it draws someone’s attention upwards. Some benefits of a coffered ceiling is that they can absorb sound, create the feeling of spaciousness to a room, add a touch of elegance to a room and work well with a high ceiling.
Coved ceiling: This type of ceiling is characterized by curved edges instead of sharp edges between the starts at the main wall of the room up to the ceiling. This creates a round concave surface at the side. There are many benefits to this type of ceiling such as; achieving a modern and traditional look to the room, makes the ceiling appear higher and gives your room a comfortable feeling.
