Basement Ceilings & Bar Backsplashes with Tin Panels

tin basement ceilings

Basement remodels are unique in that they're a blank canvas with unlimited potential. From family rooms and dens to man caves, bars and media rooms, what different households choose to do with their basements are seemingly endless. Finished basements can add significant space to your living area and increase resale value so it's worthwhile to take the time to be thoughtful about your remodel and plan accordingly. Every family is different, so pinpoint what you like to do and make those activities a focal point. Look beyond adding an extra room for storage by turning the space into something useable like a lounge, game room or home theater.

If you're looking to finish or remodel your basement with tin, the first step is to determine whether your room will have a singular function or be multipurpose, which dictates what layout you will need. Then, it's time to start looking for style inspiration. Do you want to create a space that's comfortable, inviting and encourages hanging out? Or will it be more for show, featuring expensive designer pieces?

Our tin ceiling panels create a dynamic look for your basement ceiling. Drop-In tiles work with suspended grid systems (consider our Acoustical Drop-In tiles if sound is a concern), patented Snap LockTM tiles are used when covering drywall or popcorn ceilings, while Nail-Up panels are designed to install over wood joints or plywood. With basement ceilings, you are often working around ducts and electrical wires, which can be easily concealed by beautiful tin panels. Tin tiles are also mold and mildew resistant so your space stays cleaner. For lighter walls, we recommend a darker color to add depth to the space. To create an inviting ambiance, consider using a warm color like copper. If you’re feeling inspired, play around with metallic hues or mix and match patterns to create a look that’s uniquely you. Choose our tin crown moldings or your own wood trim to frame the tin and provide a polished, finished look.

If you're looking to create a beautiful bar, tin panels make a great backsplash accent. Starting at just $3 a square foot, they're affordable, attractive and easy to install. Cleanable with just a mild detergent and water, creating your perfect basement watering hole has never been easier.
