Hi and welcome to the forum.

This is, of course, a matter of opinion, but I like the 'knockdown' look myself.

I once made a mistake, and applied Orange Peel to a wall that should have been Knock Down. I went back, and had Knock Down put on right over the Orange Peel.

It turned out so good that I now do this whenever I can get the extra money for it. Really makes a difference.

Slick finish with flat latex paint looks the best and is the easiest to patch if you ever have the need....

Good point, but hey, I like Willie's idea too!

I'm curious to see the end result, Willie, got any pics?
