Advice on removing coving plastered into ceiling

Postby BenDukes » Sun Feb 19, 2023 6:13 pm


I am currently renovating a 1950's end terrace and am working on the living room.

Around the ceiling wall edge is curved plaster coving which has been plastered into the ceiling, I am looking to remove this coving as I am not a fan of curves preferring clean lines, the house had no character features nor does the coving add any.

What is the best way to remove this coving whilst minimising damage to the ceiling? Or should I just bite the bullet and remove the ceiling and install a fresh one?
