Can I use wall panels on my basement ceiling?

I am planning my basement remodel and love the idea of a tongue and groove look for the ceiling. Is it possible to use painted wall panels screwed into the ceiling beams? That way the mechanics of the house can still be accessed but I don't have an ugly drop ceiling.


Yes, we did this in our basement. I would just caution, to try and find lighter tongue and groove. They also have dropped ceiling tiles now that you can attach directly to the ceiling without the metal grids. I saw one just recently at a hardware store (in Canada) that looked exactly like our tongue and groove wooden ceiling. GOOD LUCK>

Yes. But use screws so the sheets remain above the head. They look great.
