    Hello Lauren! This information covers painting a few different kinds of textured ceilings. Read through it and find the ceiling that resembles yours. Hope this helps you:

    We used a long-nap roller on our lightly textured ceiling.

    Yep, use a thick nap roller. 1/2" to 3/4" nap.

    Hi Lauren: The best way is to spray paint as textured, as well as popcorn, ceilings are very porous and when you go over them with anything, they tend to flake and make a mess. So, my recommendation would be to spray paint. And, it's faster:) But, if you want to paint it with a roller, the thick nap is best. Good luck.
