Basement ceiling ideas - Other than dry way.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Laqfoil Ltd.
We have lots of ideas for ceilings, especially basement, as our material installs without taking up more than an inch of room height, and can save your finished rooms from water damage in the event of a leak. Please feel free to browse our projects and website for more info.

The ceilings in these pictures are all high gloss. The reflective quality of this material is especially good for making rooms look taller, but we also do have other finish options.

Er, by the way, that picture doesn't appear to be of a basement, or a ceiling.

try jayson home & garden for something similar. we purchased the lamps and them bought red linen fabric and had shades custom made-but you can probably find red linen drum shades online.

I found a similar one called Ravena medallion cream. I am using it to make roman shades, it is sold as a quilting fabric but they are going to be lined. I spent so much time trying to find a similar fabric!

Behr's Contemplation is a similar color to the blue, while Behr's Moonrise is similar to the white.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

BPF: Since not everyone can shop at trade-only showrooms, give us your go-to retail store for great home furnishings. BB: West Elm for desks and accessories, Crate and Barrel for off-the-rack upholstery and Anthropologie for great-looking drapery panels.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Design Details: Colorful Lampshades
Two orange lampshades set in the window effectively repeat the orange used elsewhere in the room as an accent color, as on the side chair and in the floral display.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Hit a Bold Color Balance
Betsy Burnham is yet another acclaimed designer who understands the balance of color. Bold shades, such as the red seen on the chair, lampshades and flowers, are found in both foreground and background to maintain equilibrium.
Laura Gaskill added this to Is an Online Decorator Right for You?
The Betsy Burnham look: Known for her expert way with color, Burnham offers gorgeous and unexpected color palettes that are extremely liveable. Expect interiors that are polished and upscale but always comfortable.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Split Your Colors with Two-Toned Walls
Two neutrals set the scene for a variety of looks. In this space designed by Betsy Burnham, anything from bold brights to zebra prints take new light against the two-toned wall.
2. Paint two-tone walls. While tall potted plants are great for drawing the eye up and accentuating high ceilings, sometimes we crave the opposite effect. Painting color on your walls only part of the way up creates a cozier feeling, tricking the eye into thinking the ceilings are lower than they are. Use wainscoting as a natural guide or simply tape off a line and paint everything below it.
Stacks and StacksA beautiful picture book should be looked at. Just as you wouldn't hide your most beautiful art in a closet, don't hide your most beautiful books on a bookshelf. Horizontal stacks like this add symmetry, color and texture. And you can actually look at them.
