We have inherited a home that was bulit in the 50's. The walls in every room minus the kitchen and bathroom are textured plaster. We have primed the bedroom twice, 2 coats cut in and on the walls. The corners all around the room seem hollow, I don't know how else to explain it. I have noticed this in all the other rooms as well but they just seemed dirty and unable to get clean. Now that we have primed this room it seems like its the walls not a poor paint job.

What could cause this? Is it light reflection off the smoother corners or do the corners just need more coats of primer?

Thank you for the advice. Redoing the corners does not sound like a fun job at all.
You can tell pretty much from wherever you stand in the room, this includes the ceiling to wall corners as well. They just look almost see through, like the paint didn't cover enough. They are plaster walls not drywall.
We have tried to do that to even it out. Could it be from years of painting and not covering the corners properly.
