I can’t believe how much talk about popcorn ceiling removal there is on the web.
Never in a million years would I guess that a building design trend from the 1960’s such as popcorn ceiling would become the reason for one of the hottest home renovation tactics in 2021.
Why is a Smooth Ceiling Appealing?
You would have to look at Mississauga real estate listings for only a few moments to notice that all of the best homes have smooth ceilings. This is no accident. As design trends change over the years, certain trends become ‘sticky’, and I believe that is what we are seeing with the continuous popcorn ceilings removal from homes across the land.
Big homes with high ceilings look even bigger and brighter with zero texture. The ever increasing popularity of pot lights also factors into this type of stucco-free ceilings.
The rooms become brighter and bigger feeling due to the fact that the textured ceiling is no longer blocking the spread of light. Light spreads further, and therefore the room is brighter.
