our new home (Victorian) has a grim 1970s kitchen with a very low ceiling covered (badly) in painted textured wallpaper. in fact, every room in the house has a textured papered ceiling!! since we have a limited budget, does anyone have any ideas on how we can redecorate and modernise the ceilings without having every room replastered? The kitchen is the room most urgently in need of attention; maybe we can find a solution for that and then save up before doing the other rooms.......?
See our project on stripping wallpaper and the other one on removing artex. Your post reads as though you might be planning to plaster over the textured paper....DONT. See also our project on top coat or skim plastering.
