Ceiling drywall or ceiling tile.


I have a lot of HVAC ductwork to work around in my basements. So I am debating if I should drywall the or use ceiling tiles.

With a suspended ceiling it would be simple to make any plumbing, electrical, HVAC, ECT. repairs of changes.

I always suggest suspended in basements for the reasons mentioned. And I agree they aren't as good looking. But use your imagination, paint the metal runners a contrasting color, paint a design on adjoining tiles, cut a thin piece of shiny metal and put random so they look like mirrors. You get the idea.

I agree. And actually, some of the products Armstrong is putting out these days look very good!

I have a 7' ceiling height in my basement. Since I am going to be using ceiling tiles what is the lowest clearance that I need. I am 6'5 so I would like to keep the height as high as possible.
