Ceiling - textured or smooth?
We'll soon be at the time where we'll need to decide whether to texture our ceiling or leave it smooth.
Our house is fifteen years old and has textured ceilings like every other house of that vintage. The texture is knockdown style which we don't mind actually but here's the issue. Our house is open concept, even more so now since we removed a wall between our kitchen and family room. There were door ways leading from the hallway into the kitchen and family room which have also been removed. The dining room, living room and hallway are textured, the family room and kitchen were smooth. We must either remove all the texture and go smooth everywhere or match the texture and continue it into the kitchen/family room.
The kitchen look will be traditional, cream cabinets, java black soapstone and black walnut counters, oh and a cream AGA.
