Textured and Smooth Ceilings

Textured and Smooth ceilings by Master PaintersIt goes without saying that the type of ceiling finish that you decide to use is going to have a tremendous impact on the overall appeal of the interior. Ceilings are capable of reflecting light and, as such, any imperfection is likely to be noticed as time passes. This is the main reason for which you might want to consider working with a professional company which handles this exactly.

Master Painters is a company with almost 60 years of experience in the field. We are a third-generation family-owned business which is all about making our customers happy. We hold the highest standards as this is a value that we cherish significantly.

Now, it’s obvious that letting a professional handle the task makes more sense than attempting a DIY job, so let’s consider your options.

Textured or smooth – what to choose?

This is a tough one. However, we’ve prepared a few navigational tips that you can take advantage of in order to make the right call. At the very least, you are going to get closer than you were before to making a decision.

1.      Appearance

Obviously, there is a significant difference between the appearances of both finishes. Smooth ceilings are characterized by a polished and clean appeal if they are finished splendidly. They have no visible seams, which is also something to consider. Textured ceilings, on the other hand, come in an array of different styles. Some of them include orange peel textures, popcorn and knockdown, to name a few.

2.      Technique

The technique which is used to carry out both types of ceilings is particularly different. With this in mind, it’s also important to note that this is something which will reflect on the price. Obviously, textured ceilings are more expensive, mainly because they require specific technique and a lot more effort to be completed.

Additional considerations

Now that you know the two main components that you’d have to be aware of, there are a few additional considerations that you might have to consider. Right off the bat, you need to understand that textured ceilings are a lot harder to maintain. Of course, before we go any further, it’s worth noting that this is fairly subjective. It depends solely on the type of texture style that you’ve chose. Popcorn styles are going to be a lot harder to maintain than a smooth ceiling, for instance.

What is more, textured ceilings take more time to be completed for the same general concerns laid out above. However, they are also particularly interesting, unusual and can bring a certain twist to your home.

All in all, the choice is going to be based on your own personal preference and the overall style of your interior. This is something that you have to account for. Regardless of what you choose, however, give us a call so that we can provide you with a fair quote and to carry out the task as quickly as it’s possible so you can get on with your life.
