A ceiling is a commonly overlooked aspect of basement design, but it plays an important role for both lighting and visual appeal. Choosing the right ceiling can make the difference between a dark and cold-feeling basement, and a bright and warming space. There are a variety of different basement ceiling options to choose from, but which ones are the best? We’ve narrowed down the top three most popular, trendy, and fantastic basement ceiling designs around.

Tray ceilings, also known as inverted or recessed ceilings, look exactly like they sound; an upside-down tray. They’re a versatile design choice, allowing large, long, small, short, rounded, and squared design combinations, which makes them a stylish choice for practically any location in your basement.

Overall, whether your basement is a simple open-concept design or a complex and fancy layout, tray-ceilings add an extra layer of visual aesthetic and elegance. Additionally, they provide excellent acoustic capabilities, so they’re a particularly worth-while addition to a music or entertainment room.

In this golden age of technological advancement, every home in 2020 should have LED lighting. LEDs are more energy-efficient, more powerful, and generate little to no heat compared to traditional light bulbs. They provide exceptional mood or atmosphere lighting for a basement space. In and of themselves, LEDs can be considered a ceiling option. Hidden LEDs also pair quite well in combination with a tray ceiling.

Box beam ceilings are typically considered a high-end design choice, as they’re far more complicated, time-consuming, and expensive to design and install. However, their complexity is what makes them truly stand out from all other ceiling designs.
