Interior Painting 101: Textured Ceiling Painting Tips, Miami, Ohio

A textured ceiling adds uniqueness to any room, whether it’s an orange peel, popcorn, or knockdown form. The commercial painters at Richard Shannon’s Painting, Flooring and Remodeling have provided outstanding exterior and interior painting services to Cincinnati, OH clients since 1980, as well as hardwood floor and carpet installation, deck staining, and much more.

Review the experienced team’s best tips for painting a textured ceiling and enjoy providing your space with something special:

  • Prepare: Clean the surface carefully with a vacuum. Use gentle strokes to avoid damaging the ceiling. Remove furniture from the space, and drape drop cloths on large pieces. Place drop cloths on the floor as well to prevent paint drips from causing damage, and cover walls with plastic sheeting. The plastic should hang down at least three feet from the ceiling.
  • Paint: Use the right paint to beautify your textured ceiling. Purchase texture paint, a thicker paint type that’s specially formulated to hold stippling and similar designs long after it’s dried. Texture paint is available in smooth, coarse, and sand varieties. Coarse paint is sometimes referred to as “popcorn paint.”
  • Interior PaintingTape & Tool Use: Tape the edges of your ceiling to sidestep bleeding paint issues. Your Cincinnati commercial painters also stress painting textured ceilings with either a spray gun or roller. If you’re using a roller, ensure it has a nap of at least one inch for thick textures, or 3/4 inch for finer versions.
  • Prime: Prime the ceiling so the paint binds to its surface correctly. Allow primer to dry overnight before painting for best results.

Keep in mind paint takes longer to cure on textured ceilings due to their many nooks and crannies. Rely on the expertise of those at Richard Shannon’s Painting, Flooring and Remodeling for more tips, or commission the commercial painters to take over your interior painting project.
