Contrary to popular belief, drywall texture can help make certain spaces look much more sophisticated or interesting. Though you can try doing it yourself, hiring professional painters in Delta is best if you want to try the more complicated textures. There are 5 main types of textures for you to choose from:
The Skip Towel
The Skip Towel is the most common drywall texture and involves the use of texture plaster. It can be a little challenging to achieve, especially because the finished look requires the use of a towel. As such, it is best to be left to somebody who has experience with drywall textures and finishes.
This type of texture is ideal for those who wish to have a relatively smooth looking wall and do not wish for the texture to give off a rough appearance. There are a few types of swirls that you can choose from. The most popular ones are the Perlite Swirl and the Sand Swirl.
The Lace Swirl requires a lot of hard work, experience, and patience. It involves painting the drywall with a bristled brush and then skilfully smashing the points you created with the brush. The result is lace like pattern. Due to its complexity, it is best to depend upon professionals for this finish.
This particular finish requires the most work because you need to prime the wall before painting it. Knockdown is usually confused with Skip towel finish; however, the two are different in the sense that Knockdown is much more textured, with a rather bumpy finish, while Skip towel aims for a finish that is smoother. Either way, good painters from Delta are not only able to distinguish between the two but are also experts at the techniques used to create each finish.
Spray Sand is the cheapest option out of all the choices. It only requires a single coat of paint and gives sand like texture.
When choosing a type a textured finish, consider the shape of the room and the décor you will place in it.
