texture in new kitchen?


Hi All,

I am in the middle of remodeling my kitchen and have reached the point where I am almost ready to apply texture to the ceiling and walls. The texture will be a light orange peel. Most of the walls will be covered by the cabinets and tile but there are still many areas I would like to texture. Is texture a problem under tile? Should I mask off those areas?

Thanks in advance...

Dave

You do know texture in a kitchen or bathroom is near impossible to clean and degrease, and a lot harder to make repairs to.
I would install the tile first, then texture.
If you mess up in your masking off you would be stuck trying to fill in areas or sand it off.

Just use some 2" wide blue tape to mask over the edges of the tile when texturing and painting.

So, other than texture, what is the recommended wall and ceiling treatment for kitchens? The dry wall is up and I am working on finishing off the taping.

Around here you only see textured walls in 1970's basements. The norm is do prep and paint the drywall.

Around here textured ceilings are still the most common ceiling finish but when we redid our kitchen, we had the texture removed and went with a smooth ceiling.

It all comes down to personal preference.

Just prime and paint them.
You could add an accent color on a wall,
Add a simple chair rail.
Wainscot with a chair rail.
Crown moulding.
