basement man cave question

I do not want to do a drop ceiling due to short ceiling height so I am strongly considering an "industrial" look and hiring a painter to spray the ceiling black.....the duct work, water pipes (which is a plastic pex type [rodcut), wires, everything!!! Many restaurants and homes in our area (Bham, AL) are doing this. I love it and the wife is somewhat warming up to question is there any cons I should be aware of if we do this? Things to avoid, etc. Painter said he would use a flat paint called "dry fall". Falls to a fine powder. Anything you can suggest would be great. We would use track lighting so we have flexibility with the lights.

just makes sure any holes in the floor are sealed before spraying .... don't want flat black in the upstairs area
