Textured drywall adds style and uniqueness to a home’s interior. The right drywall texture can change the feel of a room and enhance the decor. There are several drywall finishes to choose from so plan carefully to make sure it matches your room decor.
When selecting a drywall finish, consider a room’s design, shape, decor, and the look the room should have. Some finishes are thick with noticeable lines and crevices. Other finishes are much less noticeable. Or you could opt to have no finish at all and use a simple, smooth finish. A smooth finish is minimalistic and works well with modern design trends.
