Drywall texture and painting
Hi all–about 70% done with our PGH and I have a drywall/painting question for the experts. Not necessarily a “green” question, but perhaps I can get a little advice.
First, we’re trying to decide on the texture of our drywall–basically smooth vs. textured. The PGH will be more contemporary and it seems that smooth would be the way to go. But, at a 20-25% upgrade in price compared to orange peel. Further, the contractor recommended that, if we go with smooth, a pro painter comes in to spray it. We were going to DIY paint with brushes and rollers–but perhaps this isn’t the way to go with smooth drywall? Any opinions here–smooth vs. textured, painting, etc.?
I thank you all in advance.
