When we talk about texture application, what do we mean? First, let’s talk about textures and a few of the different styles.

By texturing the walls of your home, you’re able to accomplish a couple of things. First, you can take a regular smooth surface, and depending on your style, transform it into a pitted, peaked, and visually unique surface to paint. Second, when you texture, you’re able to cleverly hide imperfections in the walls that otherwise would require numerous tiny repairs such as drywall seams.

Some of the more common drywall finishing styles are:

  • Knock Down-This is a mottled style that’s a little more intense than just a simple flat finish on the wall.
  • Orange Peel-This style gets its name from the skin of the fruit it resembles, and it has small bumps and indentations.
  • Popcorn-Used from the 1950’s through the 1980’s, popcorn is an extremely common style, and it visually looks more like cottage cheese.

You might be in a situation where you’re tired of looking at the same old style and you need a change. Maybe the style you have is fine, but it’s old and in desperate need of repairs.
