Drywalled ceiling coming down to the loft joists. Thinking about how to get that “wood” look for not much money.

    Hi Magi the most inexpensive "wood look" I can think of is plybead, its plywood that looks like bead board. I used it on all my ceilings and it looks pretty nice, you can stain it or paint it.

    You can use laminate flooring.

    yep, fake beadboard is the way to go. We did our attic ceiling in it.

    Check craigslist and any building supply salvage yards in your area for free or cheap leftover wood flooring.
