The Most Popular Finished Basement Ceiling Options

In our last blog post we talked about what to put on your basement floor. Today we’re explaining your finished basement ceiling options. The type of ceiling you choose will depend on how you are using your space and what will be in it, but don’t be afraid to get creative.

A ceiling doesn’t have to be merely a continuation of the walls. In fact, the ceiling can be the difference between ordinary and extraordinary. How you finish the ceiling impacts the whole room. For example, choosing a lighter color will make the entire space appear wider, and can keep your basement from looking gloomy.

Does your ceiling have visible ductwork, unsightly beams, pipes or other distracting features? A professional basement finishing company has solutions to hide them in an attractive way.

Drywall is the most popular method to finish basement ceilings in Colorado. While this is simple and economical, why not consider some other options to enhance and decorate your new space?

Here are Some Other Popular Basement Ceiling Options:


Exposed beams fit with a variety of styles from rustic to modern to industrial.



Also known as inverted or recessed ceilings, tray ceilings can be painted to add depth and interest.


Smooth vs. Textured Ceilings

While many homeowners prefer a flat finish on the ceiling, adding a texture can add impact and some personal flair. Texture is also a clever way to hide imperfections in the ceiling, and there are many ways to do it.


Tongue & Groove

Adding an authentic wood look to your ceiling with tongue and groove planks works with rustic or formal décor.


Faux Painting

Faux painting techniques can be used to create any look you can imagine.


Crown Molding

Crown molding is a simple way to add an elegant finish to your ceiling. Molding can be ornate or simple.


Curved Drywall

Create a dramatic arched ceiling in a hallway, or a cove ceiling in any room.



Light fixtures come in many shapes and styles and the light itself can add a dramatic effect to your ceiling.


The options for ceilings are truly endless, but don’t let that overwhelm you. Your basement finishing company can help you choose the right design and materials for your project.
