Similarly, it is asked, how do you get rid of textured walls?
Getting rid of textured wall paint is a messy project, but the end result is a smooth flat finish.
- Spray warm water, using a spray bottle, on one square foot of textured drywall.
- Gently sand the surface of the wall with sandpaper.
- Level the walls with drywall compound if the texture is too deep for complete removal.
Likewise, do textured walls add value? Textured paint adds depth. Opting for more dimensional work, such as molding or texture, transforms your walls into works of art. If the project is carried out by professionals, this will increase the property value of your home.

Why are walls in California textured?
Walls there are made out of concrete rather than dry wall, wood, and siding elsewhere. Sanding of drywall is known by the state of California to cause cancer and significantly add to air pollution. Textured walls cover up rough drywall without the need for sanding and smoothing, which costs money.
