Flat / Smooth Ceiling

What Is A Flat/Smooth Ceiling Texture?

Flat Ceiling Specialists In Calgary

Common in many modern homes, the flat or smooth ceiling texture is a type of drywall finish. As its name implies, this texture features a completely even surface with no bumps, ridges, or patterns. Flat/smooth ceilings are popular because they lend themselves well to clean lines and minimalistic design. They can also be a good choice for rooms with low ceilings, as they make the space feel more open and airy.

Textured Ceilings vs Smooth Ceilings: What's The Better Option?

There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing between textured and smooth ceilings. It ultimately comes down to personal preference. That said, there are a few things to keep in mind that may help you make your decision.

Textured Ceilings

Textured ceilings can be more forgiving when it comes to imperfections. If your ceiling isn’t perfectly level or there are a few cracks, they’ll be less noticeable with a textured finish.
  • Can help hide imperfections in the drywall
  • Are more forgiving if you need to make repairs
  • Can add visual interest to a room

Smooth Ceilings

Smooth ceilings offer a clean look that can give your home a more modern feel. They can also make small spaces feel larger and brighter. Keep in mind, however, that smooth ceilings can highlight any imperfections, so they may require more upkeep than textured ceilings.
  • Create a sleek, modern look
  • Are easier to clean
  • Can make a small space feel larger and more open

Will Having A Flat/Smooth Ceiling Option Increase The Value Of My Home?

Smoother ceilings can equate to higher value for buyers looking for a modern home. If you plan on selling your home in the future, a smooth ceiling may help you sell for a higher price. However, it's important to note that this won't be the case in every situation. Ultimately, the value of your home will depend on a variety of factors, and ceiling texture is just one of them.

We recently contracted Big Al's to refinish our main floor ceilings and we are really pleased with the result. The entire Big Al's team was on-schedule start to finish. In fact, they finished one day ahead of schedule. While a project like our can be rather dusty, our home was left as clean as could be expected. We, honestly, cannot think of any criticism and we highly recommend Big Al's if you are looking to refinish your ceilings.

I was really impressed with Big Als. A few contractors I know recommended them. They were very professional. We had an opportunity to speak to Al and Kevin. I wouldn’t spend much time looking around for someone else to do your textured ceiling. Big Als is the best and the price is good too.

We had James and Frankie come do the texturing from a water leak and then repaint the family room and kitchen. They are 2 of the greatest guys and go above and beyond expectations and everything has to be perfect before they leave. They also came back on a Sunday to do another repair for us outside our house because we couldn’t get anyone else to come do it. They are exceptional employees and will refer your company to others that need work done. Great job guys.

I have a property for sale that had some previous ceiling repairs that were very poorly done. It kept coming up with people viewing the property and I was fortunate enough to have Big Al's come into repair it and refinish it properly. Cam did an absolutely incredible job and I could not be happier with it. There were four large areas to be repaired and the ceilings are 25 years old so I had no expectations for a perfect blend, but somehow or another he managed to do such a great job that no one can even tell that there were repairs there. Thank you so much!!
