Need ideas to cover or disquise ductwork and plumbing in basement garage
November 15, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are considering converting a drive under garage (double) into a teen hangout. The ceiling height varies between & ft and 8 ft. The dilemma is hiding ductwork, plumbing and ugly wiring. Also, we want to keep the garage look with a roll up door or possible carriage doors. Any ideas?

You could hide the wiring in pvc and paint everything the same color as the ceiling, or paint using a couple of different colors for a cool industrial look with stained concrete floor, area rugs, etc.
