I'm going to remove the popcorn ceiling in my 90's era house and was wondering if I should texturize after removing it. The walls have the "orange peel" type of texture on them but I just don't know if it would be best to have everything match or if a primered/painted ceiling would be OK with texturized walls.
This doesn't answer the question exactly, but it's an alternative you might consider.
If you want to go with a completely flat ceiling but don't want to remove the current ceiling, you can simply put new drywall attached through the existing ceiling. My in-laws recently did this in their living room and it looks great (you wouldn't know that's what they did if someone didn't tell you). The contractor liked the idea of not having to take down the existing and dealing with all the blown insulation.
