One should not apply dense acrylic paint directly to the ceiling. Chances are that it will rip the popcorn texture off the ceiling. So it's better to dilute or thin the acrylic paint up to 20%. The thinning liquid used can be water. It's absolutely necessary that the ceiling texture soaks in the acrylic paint. Experiment with the amount of water needed, to make the paint sufficiently thin. Apply and see if it's the right proportion. Approximately half a quarter of water for every gallon, is a reasonably good ratio and serves the purpose. Refer to the paint guide, that's usually provided by the manufacturers for more details. You may also find information about mixing ratios on the manufacturer's website.
If you want your basement ceiling to have an Elizabethan look, then coffered ceilings are what you should go in for. Coffered ceilings add depth, elegance and class to the ceiling. Hang a chandelier in the middle of the coffered ceiling for an added effect. As coffered ceilings can be very expensive and you need a contractor to build them for you, go in for such a type of ceiling only if you are planning to use your basement for entertainment or other recreational purposes.
It is always better to prevent a damage from happening than actually mending the damage. Make sure there are no water leaks causing harm to the ceiling. Try using furring strips, as staple work is better than adhesive and is long-lasting. You can also go for a naked ceiling if you are ready to spend extra money from your pocket.
Coffered Ceiling: All those who would want their basement to look par swish, may well opt for this idea. Although the coffered ceiling installation may cause your wallet to squinch, it is worth the measure. A flip side to this project is that you don't need to do much for the embellishment of the basement, as the ceiling itself lends much elan. However, ensure that you appoint an experienced contractor for the job.
