Is It Necessary To Remove Them?
For the sake of the overall look of your home, most likely. The style of textured ceiling fell out of use a while ago and no longer is the desired look for ceilings. If you’re planning on trying to sell eventually, it’s going to be a huge hindrance to doing so. Even if not, the aesthetic of your home will only be held back by this out of date type of ceiling. On top of this, if it was made in the 70s, there’s risk of asbestos being involved as well. For safety and for getting your home looking beautiful, it’s a win-win to remove them!
Why Are They There At All?
It was, at one point, the popular look for ceilings in the 70s and 80s. The sharp, small bumps over the ceiling made it so that there was less of a concern about imperfections being noticeable, which made things easier on the builders. The added layer also had the effect of reducing noise, which was a benefit as well. Nowadays, however, there are much easier and more enticing ways to achieve this same result.
