    I don’t really care but I have heard that some older ones may have asbestos in them which is bad.

    I don’t prefer them but I honestly don’t really care.  I think when buying a house, that’d be one of the last things I’d be really concerned about.  Every rental we’ve been in has them so I’m used to them.

    Personally I don’t spend much time looking at the ceiling so I don’t have an opinion. However I agree with chasesgirl that they often contain asbestos and if you do decide to remove it (via scraping) you will need to take the proper precautions.

    I am not a huge fan of popcorn ceiling texture, in our house we have “knockdown texture” on the ceilings and in the closets which I LOVE, it looks like this:

    I voted Nay, but honestly, I never notice them in other people’s houses. The people who flip out about them on HGTV make me crazy!! They’re usually the same people who also complain when houses don’t have stainless steel appliances, or the walls are painted colors they don’t like. I’m always amazed the realtors showing them around aren’t caught rolling their eyes on camera.

    They are a cheap way for builders to finish the ceiling. They don’t have to tape, mud, or sand the drywall on the ceiling.

    They are however easy to get rid of IF they have never been painted. You just spray them with water, let it soften, then scrape it off. You then will have the unfinished drywall to decide what you want to do with.

    Eh, I don’t really care. My parents house has it. I remember when they re-did our bathroom they paid extra to get it. Since the guy doing it was a friend he let me and my brother watch him do it. I thought it was so cool so I guess I little part of me likes them 🙂

    I voted NAY … grew up with it … then my mom thought let’s scrape it off and just have a regular flat ceiling…… MISTAKE. So much mess and dust for months after. I heard too it covers up imperfections in the ceilings. I hate them .. but I live now in a 1922 bungalow with ceiling tiles .. that’s MUCH worse.

    My parent’s house has celings like this in the family room. My sister and I used to stand on the couch and touch the celing when we were little because it felt so funny lol. I don’t really even notice it in other people’s houses though.
