Insulating Ceiling for a Basement Suite

I'm just about to get started on the basement suite in my new house and am thinking about a few ideas, the main issue is the ceiling. The upstairs of the house is laminate/vinyl flooring currently and I have 3 dogs... when you're downstairs their nails are very noticeable. The basement is currently unfinished and I am going to be putting in a drywall ceiling. The few ideas I was thinking of was:

Roxul/acoustic drywall/sprayfoam or some soundmat stuff and/or a combination of any of these.

I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions, or had done something like this before? I would like to do this as cost-effectively as possible however, would prefer a good end-result over price.

Thanks :)
