Popcorn or textured ceilings were a must have trend in the 80s, but now they can leave your home looking dated and if you need to do any ceiling repairs you’re going to end up with a very mismatched look. A great way to give your home a mini-makeover is to remove the popcorn or textured look of your ceiling and add pot lights and/or a trendy light fixture. This is a project that can be DIY by scraping the popcorn off the ceiling, sanding and painting however this can be a messy and daunting task! There are a few contractor companies in the GTA that specialize in popcorn and texture removal including Strataline Inc. Strataline uses specialized machinery to minimize debris and their service range from $5-8 per square foot depending on how much work needs to be done. When the texture is removed from your ceiling you’ll notice your whole room will feel brighter, bigger and trendier. It’s the perfect reno to do if you’re planning on redecorating as it will set a new tone for the whole room.
