Question: I am putting a textured ceiling in my dining room. I have looked at a lot of pictures and some of the textured ceilings go right up to the walls and some have a gap between the texture and the walls. What is the correct method of applying a textured ceiling – to the walls or with a gap?
Answer: There is no "correct" method with respect to having a gap between the texture and the walls or bringing the texture right to the walls. It is purely an aesthetic choice.
I prefer having a gap of between 3 and 5 inches. But, that is my personal preference.
One advantage to having the gap is that it is easier to paint. When a textured ceiling butts against the wall, creating a perfectly true straight paint line at the top of the wall is very difficult because some of the ceiling texture will actually be touching the wall.
