There are a lot of ways to mix up the appearance of a room. Painting the wall or trim, or updating the wallpaper are some simple adjustments that can be made. Another way to make a large impact in a room is to texture the wall.
The most common of all is the orange peel texture. Orange peel texture looks like small bumps all over the wall, also compared to the appearance of an eggshell. This is popular because it allows you to experiment with texture while keeping the change to the wall minimal.
The other most common texture is the knockdown, which is wider and flatter bumps than the orange peel. This texture helps to reduce the appearance of an imperfections in the drywall, adds dimension to the room, and even absorbs some sound.
If you want to get fancy, you can get a swirl texture, which will create overlapping circles. To outdo the swirl, another drywall texture possibility is the comb. This is similar to the swirl, but wavy, and has more of a 3-D impact than the other textures.
Last week, we worked on a commercial drywall hanging, taping, and floating project in Seattle. We also worked on a residential drywall and interior painting project in Snohomish. We taped and floated out new and existing walls, along with painting the ceiling, walls, and trim.
Maybe you like some of the options above, or maybe you can think of an even more creative design that is even more striking. Whatever you decide on, reach out to us if you would like the interior or exterior – of your house or commercial building – refinished. We look forward to discussing the options for texture!
