- Choose a ceiling. Suspended ceilings require a metal frame and ceiling tiles the cover pipes, beams and other structures for aesthetic appeal. Stretch ceilings cost a little more but involve Polyvinyl chloride membrane tiles that form a 3D effect, which can create an artistic look for your basement studio or living area. If you want to paint the ceiling, drywall may be the best option. Keep in mind that this may make it more difficult to access wires, plumbing and anything else that goes above it. You can paint the drywall ceiling to match your decor for a cohesive look.

Matrix flooring systems include a wear layer to protect against scratches, resist stains and provide easy cleanup. The luxury vinyl print features exceptional durability, while the waterproof rigid core made of stone plastic composite provides stability on uneven subfloors. Additionally, the attached underlayment absorbs sounds and increases comfort underfoot.
