The earliest appearances of popcorn-textured ceilings were in the 60s. The texture remained popular for quite some time and was commonly applied to ceilings up to the 1980s. The texture was a way to conceal any imperfections on a ceiling, and it was also an easy solution. It wasn’t necessary to add more color or paint once the plaster was supplied. While popcorn ceilings seemed like an efficient solution, problems cropped up as time went on. The ceilings are hard to clean and often attract dust. To make things worse, it can be difficult to remove the textures from the ceiling if you’re not a professional.
