I’m quite new in Canberra, and recently brought an old 70’s unit to live in. I hardly noticed it, but others keep pointing the old slightly stained Vermiculite(popcorn) ceiling, mentioning having it a lighter colour will make the rooms look more ‘open’.
Since the carpets need replacing, the kitchen is crud, and the furniture I have is rubbish chipboard from moving from rental to rental, it’ll be ideal to have it painted before I spend any more on this place.
Placing a false ceiling is out of the question because it would make it lower then the 2.4m building standards required, removing it would be a nightmare mess, and there’s a chance it could contain asbestos.
I read on some forums that painters don’t particularly like doing these ceilings, because of the expense (much paint is used and labour) and little to show for it.
Could anyone recommend some professional painters for this type of work. Thanks.
