What Is ‘Knockdown Texture’?
Although many homeowners have seen and admired quality knockdown designs, you may not know it by name. Knockdown texture is a drywall finishing style that is happy medium between a flat, smooth finish and a more extreme, old-fashioned finish (such as orange peel or popcorn texture). Although there is more than one way to apply knockdown texture, the most common method is known as a “spray hopper.” A joint compound is watered down into a soft mixture and then mounted on the wall in a thick design that ranges from loose patterns to an abstract layout. As the compound dries, a trowel is used to finetune the design—which is done by hand, by skilled craftsmen. The result is a wall that has a 3D effect that draws and soothes the eye, adding a new visual element to your interior design.
The Benefits of Knockdown Textures
Knockdown texture is a great addition for ceilings and walls in residential interiors. It’s commonly applied to a surface where old-fashioned popcorn texturing has been removed, but can also be used to amplify the look of flat, smooth surfaces as well. Knockdown texture can also be used on walls that are backdrops for displays or visual centerpieces for a room.
For most homeowners, a medium level of knockdown texture is desired. If you’re going for a more cutting-edge look, however, you can request a more dramatic texture. Or choose a light texture to make a subtle statement. Our skilled artisans can custom-design any knockdown texture in order to suit your personal taste. All colors and shades are available—and we can even do interesting, evocative patterns.
A Cost-Effective Solution
Another advantage to knockdown textures is a considerable reduction in construction and labor costs. That’s because knockdown textures can conceal imperfections in walls that can occur over time in older buildings or may be caused by construction or renovation. Patching up the imperfections by sanding them down, filling them in, or replacing drywall can be time-consuming and cost you more in labor. Knockdown textures solve that dilemma by covering up the imperfections with creative solutions that beautify and modernize your home.
