Popcorn Ceiling Removal Will Modernize The Look Of Your Home
The reason most people want popcorn ceiling removal services for their home is that it’s simply out of style. It dates a house, and the majority of homeowners want a more modern look. Other than feathered hair and acid-washed jeans, nothing screams “1985” quite like a popcorn ceiling.
When replacing a popcorn ceiling, there are several different types of ceiling textures to choose from. The trend for ceilings now is minimal texture, even completely smooth.
Flat white is still the color trend for ceilings as it simply makes a room look and feel bigger, though larger rooms might benefit from using a lighter shade of the wall color for the ceiling.
Why Popcorn Ceilings?
From the 1950’s to the 1980’s “popcorn” ceilings were installed in most new constructions. Also known as the acoustic ceiling, the idea was that the rough ceiling texture would cut down on noise.
It also covered any imperfections in the installed sheetrock ceiling tape joints. It gradually fell out of fashion in the 1980’s as its popularity dwindled. It seems that no one wants it in their homes anymore.
Is it Hard For Me To Remove?
It requires some planning, a fair bit of taping and masking, and a whole lot of elbow grease. Some customers try and tackle this job themselves to save money. Here are some tips for removing popcorn ceilings that can help get you started.
Once the scraping is done, then there are seams to float over, gouges to repair, and a new texture to spray on. This of course is followed by priming and painting.
