Our new house came complete with popcorn ceilings in every room. We were looking for an inexpensive way to update the ceilings. When we removed the soffits from the cabinets, it left big holes in the ceiling. It would have been very expensive to patch the holes, scrape the popcorn, skim coat and paint the ceiling. The solution? We found these glue up styrofoam tiles .They glued right up, were easy to cut

    This looks beautiful and easy but I am just wondering how long has it been? How does the glue hold up to the heat in the kitchen? We are redoing our kitchen now and I like this idea but my kitchen is much smaller than yours

    Love everything about your kitchen. The cupboards color, the accent color on the island, the lights, and of course the ceiling. Just beautiful.

    Luckily there are no popcorn ceilings in the rental I live in and am SO glad! Finally, I see beautiful options to hide that ugly mess! I love your idea that you went with and had no idea there were so many options out there until I saw your post. Obviously there are a lot of people out there that feel the same way! I understand the initial reasons for the "sound proofing" but have felt that popcorn ceilings are hideously ugly! You did a beautiful job!
