basement recreation room for teens with suspended wood ceiling

Suspended wood ceiling panels add interest as well as acoustics to this basement recreation room for kids.

Long before plaster and gypsum, there was wood….so woodwork on kids’ room ceilings is really nothing new.

Because it was used more often a few generations back, many have not experienced the warmth, unique style, and comfortable look wood adds to a room.

Improving space overhead with wood can take a kid’s room design to dramatic new heights (pun intended!), however scale must be kept proportional or kids will feel “the sky is falling” for sure.

There are 5 different types of wood treatments: panel, plank, beadboard, slat, and beam. Which type you choose depends on the room design.

Many different wood types are available and finish can vary from rough-hewn to smooth, natural to paint to stain, including both new and reclaimed wood species.

Look up at these beauties!
