Add Warmth and Depth to Your Home
Embellish Your Walls to Add Character
Wall textures are widely used in homes to embellish walls and conceal drywall seams and other flaws. These textures also convert plain surfaces into ones that can reflect light and add character to a space. Most homeowners in the 70s desired textured walls because they’re inexpensive, durable, and quick to apply.
However, modern home decor has favored smooth walls while focusing on color to pull a room together. This style trend has led to a rise in demand for texture wall repair by professional painting contractors.
We’ll go over common wall texture types for those who still want to include this style in their house painting. For those that don’t, we explain how professional painters can repair unwanted wall textures.
Types of Wall Texture
Knockdown style is fairly simple, and most people may not need the expertise of a wall painting contractor to apply it. This texture is used to give drywall depth and warmth.
It has a stucco appearance, radiating a relaxed sophistication that works well in various settings. A significant drawback of this wall texture is the difficulty of cleaning it compared to orange peel texture, as knockdown wall texture accumulates dust in its ridges.
Repair Textured Walls Professionally with a Painting Contractor
The steps include:
- Apply a thin coat of joint compound to the wall
- Allow it to dry
- Sand the surface smooth
Because this technique of texture repair is quite messy and takes a lot of time, it makes sense to hire contractors for painting. They can also help you seal the repaired wall with a primer, then apply paint or wallpaper on it.
