One of the best ways I know to render a scary basement . . . less so, is to paint it (white, obviously).

The floors, the ceiling, the posts and beams — everything.

Not only is the space more appealing, it invariably feels bigger and lighter, too!

P.S.:  Tip #2 — adding a couple “halo” fluorescent lights.
