    There all sorts of textures you can apply to ceilings and walls. Here's 3:
    1. brush - this is made with a brush that resembles a chimney sweep's broom
    2. sand - this is made by adding clean sand to paint
    3. swirl - this is made by using a trowel and making a swirling motion. My parents had this is a house; it was done well and quite beautiful.

    I have a swirl ceiling in the DR because someone designed my 1955 Cape Code with the only bathroom in the house (powder rm. on first floor) right over the DR. Have had 3 leaks from malfunctions in the toilet to an ice dam one absolutely freezing winter and melting ice backed up into the roof, etc. etc. I like the swirl because it can be done in any pattern you like doesn't look popcorn.

    instead of putting up a texture material that could absorb moisture.... consider using a PVC bead board paneling or something like ship lap... you will probably be happier in the long term

    Textured ceilings in bathrooms are not recommended as they attract lint, dust, hair, and aerosol spray residue.
    They are difficult to clean and sanitize.
