How can you get rid of popcorn ceilings?

My small bedroom has popcorn ceilings that look outdated with paint on them from the two times I‘ve painted, but I’m not sure how to get rid of the popcorn ceilings to make my room look modern.

    Scrape it off. I bought large disposable plastuc sheets and overlapped them on the floor. I used a sharp putty knife and scraped them off. I hate them!

    If you'll spray them with water and let them soak until just slightly damp before you scrape them it will keep the dust down and leave a smoother finish behind. Still quite messy though!

    you can also cover them if they aren't too thick. You can use decorative tiles to cover.
