Great ceiling idea! Do you happen to have a section of this ceiling that you could email? Also what did you use around the light housing so it wasn't exposed? Thanks!

You can find section profiles on Fry reglets web site. We simply specified one band of black electrical tape around the like fixtures and had them placed in the center of the rib.

What flooring material did you use? - I am interested in use of high quality rubber flooring or something similar in basement, but worried that it could look a tad institutional . I do like the warm gray here...

This project is not a DIY project. It does take a team of talented individuals. The best place to start is to form a well balanced design team. A good design team will consist of an Architect , maybe an interior designer and I would strongly suggest to select a Contractor up front who has an extensive knowledge of Millwork. By having a contractor on board from the beginning can be of great value to keep budgets and expectation's in line. Please feel free to reach out to us if you would like any assistance in a similar project. We would be happy to help!

We used a Fry Reglet acoustical metal wall panel (pattern B) and fastened it with exposed stainless steel screws and trim washers.

The columns are a combination of 4" metal loli columns and some false columns out of 4" PVC pipe.
They are all spray painted with Rust-Oleum Hammered paint . The color is Silver hammer

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"The greatest challenge in a basement is making it feel like it's not a basement," says architect John Conroy. His solution includes horizontal bands running throughout the design, a unique corrugated metal ceiling and clever lighting tricks. Custom furniture and careful attention to detail make all the pieces feel like a cohesive and comfortable whole, with inspiration gleaned from midcentury modern and atomic age style. One of the greatest challenges in a basement remodel is the low ceiling, often made lower by ductwork. Conroy relocated the ductwork, which drops as low as 6 feet, 2 inches above the floor, to the sides of the room. Now rather than clunking up the space, they help define it. He used stainless steel fasteners around the ductwork to make it easy to access during ongoing renovations upstairs. The higher parts of the ceiling are 7 feet high and covered in perforated corrugated metal panels. The new ceiling reflects light, brings in a subtle modern industrial element, adds acoustical value and enhances the horizontal banding theme that works through the room, all the way down to the striped rug. This attention to horizontal lines gives the illusion of higher ceilings.
Choosing fabric. This is usually the part we can’t wait to get to. No matter the furniture, Dennis is a big proponent of using indoor-outdoor fabrics. “They’ve come a long way in recent years and can look and feel every bit the richness of silk, velvet and mohair. These are great for furniture in high-traffic areas, because of how durable they are,” she says.The best and worst fabric choices. Jones says, “Avoid 100 percent linen if you have an active family and don’t like wrinkles. Beyond that, whatever fabric you are interested in, check its details; all fabrics should list their content and durability ratings. Then check to make sure the fabric you select is recommended for use as upholstery.”Upholstery That Can Stand Up to Anything
