Drywall Textures add a little flair to any rooms ceilings and walls. Even just an accent wall with a subtle texture and color can really add interest to any space in your home or business.
Knockdown texture also know as Splatter texture is a very popular texture in many areas of the United States and around the world. Here in my area all of the general contractors that are building homes in new construction are pretty much using knockdown as a drywall texture exclusively in the large new neighborhoods that are being built and have been doing so since the early 1990’s.
“Skip Trowel Texture
Skip Trowel texture is a very popular drywall texture in many areas of the United States . Here in my area most of the high end homes have this very elegant texture that also has a Mediterranean flair to it as well. Skip trowel has been around since the old lath and plaster day’s and is still a very desired texture till this day. Skip trowel can give any room an unique, modern and elegant feel!
“Orange Peel Texture
Orange peel texture is used a lot in kitchens and bathrooms because of its cleanability and durability in the high use areas of a home. Orange peel texture has stood the test of time and out lasted all of the various drywall textures that have come and gone since the 1970’s through to the early 1990’s. Needless to say that orange peel texture is on millions of homes ceilings and walls!
