orlando ceiling texturing ways to cover popcornYour ceiling’s ability to change the whole mood of the room is drastically underplayed. Smooth, blemish-free ceilings give any room a modern update; tray or coffered ceilings give you visual appeal and the ability to think creatively with lighting; paneled ceilings offer an easy elegant alternative to your typical drywall. Popcorn ceilings, on the other hand, just make your room seem outdated.

If you’re not quite ready to have your popcorn ceilings removed, there’s always the option of disguising them! From the Orlando ceiling texturing team at New Ceilings, here are 3 clever ways to cover up your popcorn ceiling:


  • Cover it up with drywall. Many homeowners choose to cover their popcorn ceilings with a layer of drywall. This is a genius idea, as it usually lowers the ceiling by less than an inch, and it eliminates the possibility of asbestos fibers being knocked loose. You will still need to texture the drywall once it’s installed, but you can finally opt for the texture you really want!
  • Layer on the paneling. Whether you choose wood or beadboard, paneling can give your home a breezy, always-summertime look. Choose a material and paint or stain that will match the mood of the room and be sure to apply it in the direction of the flow of the room, if possible.
  • Apply decorative tiles. Newer to the scene are decorative acoustic tiles, which come in a huge variety of designs, colors, and materials. These tiles can help dampen sound – hence the name – making them great for the living room or another high-traffic area. Typically, these tiles are easy to install and easy to change up, if you want to try something new.


Really, the best way to deal with the look of your popcorn ceilings is to get rid of them completely. What’s keeping you from scheduling your appointment?
