Stomped ceilings


Opinions please: Are "stomped" ceilings currently in or out of style? My wife and I just bought a house and every ceiling in it is "stomped" which she says she cannot abide. Seems like an awful lot of trouble to me over nothing. I don't mind them at all.

Pictures would help to see what you are calling stomped.

Stipple Brush is common here in the midwest, but no so much in the south west were we lived previously

Stomped ceilings


On my last house, the basement had a "knockdown" effect on the ceiling. Every time I looked at it I thought the guy was just too lazy to finish it properly.
It didn't bother me enough to change it though. But then again, I wasn't married.

I really want to know what "Properly" is? Not asking to start a flame war. I have been working on texturing my basement ceiling. I am doing stipple brush (the big double brush). In arizona I think our ceilings were orange peel.

Thanks

"Properly" in my mind means a consistant texture throughout the space.
