Drop ceilings have been the mainstay of basement ceiling treatments for decades but they don’t have to be plain or boring. A wood-look plank ceiling is a great choice, adding visual interest and style to the space. If you already have a 15/16 inch drop ceiling in place, Armstrong offers WoodHaven planks with Easy Up clips so you can quickly install the planks right over your existing grid! If your ceiling is unfinished, boards can be installed using furring strips on the joists or use the Easy Up track and clip system to maximize ceiling height.
For a pulled together look, install WoodHaven planks directly onto your wall to create wainscotting or an accent wall that matches your basement ceiling!
While white may help brighten up a dark basement, combining a natural wood color like WoodHaven’s Bamboo with rich, natural colors and great lighting creates a cozy and welcoming feel!
For a more dramatic, traditional look, combine stone veneer walls with metallic ceiling panels. Metallaire panels, like the ones shown here, can be installed into your existing 15/16 drop ceiling grid as well! – Armstrong Ceilings, www.ceilings.com/canada
