HI there!

Wodering if anyone has any creative ideas as to how to decorate or integrate the 2 support beam that are right in the middle of the basement! Can I tile them in like a mosaic type thing, or something? If you have them, what did you do?

Could you post a picture?

It depends on whether you want to emphasize them or not, and that depend on the overall plan and use for the room.

RE: decorating support beams

I've seen them painted, covered with faux columns, boxed out and tiled, turned into a pool cue holder.....all manner of things. I had them integrated into a long, tall bookcase. Depends what you're doing with the room. A pic or more details would help.
