Popcorn Ceiling Makeover- Low Budget, Big Impact

2 Materials
$400
2 Days
Easy

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 with an exacto knife and added architectural interest to the ceiling. The product cost us around $400 for the kitchen. We get a ton of compliments. You can read more details of our kitchen makeover on our blog.

    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!

    Beautiful redo on both the cabinets and the ceiling. For those concerned about the styrofoam, ‘vintage’ Style ceiling tiles also come in aluminium and a plastic type material. Might cost a little more but would also look beautiful


    Great job!!!
