Need help with low ceiling in basement
November 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My house is a new construction but the ceiling in the basement should have been higher, it is 7 ft but would like it to appear higher . if I exposed ceiling showing the joists and the duct work would it look akward and should the ceiling colour be light or dark. will be painting the walls a light colour (pale white/grey) also when you come down the stairs you have a hall to get to the play area and because the main duct is there the ceiling is just over six feet would like it to he higher are there smaller ducts i can use and would painting stripes for that wall be better to make the appearance of the wall seem higher
