Ceiling – Standard height from floor to ceiling


Is there a standard height from floor to ceiling. I want to install some false ceiling (plaster board) …

I seem to remember there was a standard but i don't remember it

Any help really appreciated

Simple answer, If your community subscribes to the the national IRC building codes, then the minimum ceiling height is 7 feet for living spaces. Some towns will allow less in basement rec rooms, but rarely is it more than the 7 foot min.
