There is nothing quite so plain as an untextured wall or ceiling; do you agree? Fortunately, you don’t have to be a pro or spend a lot of money to get exceptional results. Some of the most common ways to go about this DIY job are:
- The paint roller method. This one is most likely the easiest and most frugal.
- The knockdown texture method. This involves a bit more work but the results are impressive.
- Orange peel, eggshell, or splatter texture. This is the one most frequently used by contractors. For this method you will need a compressor and a hopper, both of which you can rent.
