Okay,,,We are renovating our basement.
We had a bulkhead that covered a load bearing beam. It was finished with popcorn stucco.
We changed our house from electric baseboard to gas, and now the ducts are running close to where the bulkhead was so we just increased the size of our bulkhead to hide the ductwork.
My question is...I swear I've seen both bulkheads ( that are not running on an outside wall ) painted the color of the walls and done the same as the ceiling texture.
Should I paint the bulkhead the same colour of the walls or finish it the same as the ceiling texture.
A quick recap of the room to help...
It is roughly 220 sq. ft., the bulkhead runs right down the middle of the room the narrow way and is 4ft. wide.
wether it matters or not the ceiling height is 8ft at the highest and the low spot is 7ft.
Any suggestions are appreciated
