15 Signs Your Home is Outdated That Experts Won’t Tell You

Popcorn Ceilings

Popcorn ceilings were, regrettably, once in style. Unfortunately, today, they’re just as ugly—and hard to clean or paint— as they were 30 years ago, but a lot more dated looking.

“You have to feel sad for anyone with popcorn ceilings,” says New York-based interior decorator Denise Gianna. “Any highly textured element adds shadows and, especially on a ceiling, this ends up looking dark and low. Avoid popcorn if you can—but if you can’t, it’s easy enough and worth the cost to rectify with a good professional by scraping and skim coating the ceiling or, if the height of the room is sufficient, by covering it with one quarter or half-inch sheetrock.”
