I have 3 bedrooms with popcorn ceilings. Which is easier and more cost effective? To remove and refinish or to cover with wood?

We would suggest removing I'm going with a flat ceiling, it will ad value and curve appeal to your home and also a great selling future.

Hi Anne, +1 for Keshna. Remove the popcorn, skim coat as required, paint. If it has been previously painted you can add an additional layer of drywall and make a new ceiling. I can't picture an interior ceiling in wood but I wouldn't think it would be cost effective.

Good luck with it.

I would remove the popcorn look, sometimes if your lucky enough you can scrape it of. Also adding wood wouldn't look appealing and your costs just boosted up. If scraping isn't working I would suggest removing the gyprock and applying new don't add new on old. Gyprock is not costly and you can do it by yourself or as a family project..

Best of Luck
