What Texture Should I Put On My Walls and Ceilings?


Home Love Construction is a company that provides professional and quality services in home renovation and construction. In this video, Brad from Home Love Construction answers the question of what kind of texture should be put on the walls and ceilings when doing drywall. The answer to this question depends on the type of look you want to achieve for your space.


If you’re going for a modern look, a flat finish is ideal. This type of finish is usually seen in big homes with high ceilings. It’s also commonly used in high-end luxury apartments, townhomes, and condos. This type of finish is known as a level 5 smooth wall finish.


For a tropical, bungalow, or coastal design, the most cost-effective way to finish your drywall is to use a knockdown texture on the ceiling and an orange peel texture on the walls. This is the standard in Florida construction.


If you’re looking for a mid-century, gothic, or classical look, wallpaper is another option to consider. To use wallpaper, the wall must be flat, at least a level 3 or level 4, with three or four coats of mud. For a perfect finish, you’ll need to do a level 5, which will require more coats of mud.


For a unique and off-the-wall look, a lace or skip trowel texture is another option. This texture is big, noticeable, and gives the walls a lot of dimension. If you’re going for an African continental, Egyptian, or Gothic theme, this texture can look incredible when done by a skilled finisher.
