Updated: Feb 20, 2023

Drywall texture and corner style can make a big difference in the look and feel of a home. Here are some of the options as a custom home builder you should consider when it comes to drywall texture and corner style.


Drywall Texture:

  1. Smooth – This is the most basic and traditional drywall texture. It’s also the easiest to paint and finish. It’s a good choice for a clean and modern look. Also something to consider is if you plan to use wallpaper. Wallpaper requires a smooth finish wall.

  2. Popcorn – This texture is created by spraying the wall with a mixture of drywall compound and water and then applying small, round bumps. It’s a very textured surface and is a good choice for a retro or vintage look.

  3. Knockdown – This texture is created by spraying the wall with a mixture of drywall compound and water and then flattening it with a trowel. It has a more pronounced texture than orange peel and is a good choice for a more rustic look.

  4. Orange Peel – This texture is created by spraying the wall with a mixture of drywall compound and water. It has a slightly bumpy, textured surface that is good for hiding imperfections in the wall.

  5. Mud Swirl - This texture is created by using a trowel to swirl drywall mud on the walls. This technique results in a unique, swirled pattern that adds depth and interest to the walls. It is best suited for a home with a traditional or rustic style.

  6. Palm texture - is created by applying drywall mud using a roller with a palm leaf pattern. The result is a subtle and tropical texture that is perfect for a beach house or a home with a coastal theme.

  7. Perlite - is a type of wall texture that is made by adding perlite to the drywall mud. Perlite is a volcanic glass that expands when heated, resulting in a lightweight, textured finish that is perfect for a modern or industrial-style home

  8. Skip trowel - is created by using a trowel to apply a thin layer of drywall mud in a random, skip-like pattern. This technique results in a subtle and elegant texture that is best suited for a home with a transitional or traditional style.

  9. Slapbrush - this texture is created by using a brush to create a random, stippled pattern on the walls. It is a great option for a home with a rustic or southwestern-style design.

  10. Spanish knife - this texture is created by using a trowel to apply drywall mud in a pattern that resembles the swirls and curves of a Spanish knife. It is ideal for a home with a Mediterranean or Spanish-style design.

  11. Swirl - is created by using a trowel to swirl drywall mud on the walls in a pattern that resembles a swirling cloud. It is perfect for a home with a traditional or vintage-style design.


Corner Style:

  1. Square – This is the most basic and traditional corner style. It’s a good choice for a clean and modern look.

  2. Rounded – This style has a softer, more rounded edge. It’s a good choice for a more traditional or softer look.

  3. Bullnose – This style has a more pronounced, rounded edge. It’s a good choice for a more rustic or Mediterranean look.

  4. Beveled – This style has a slanted edge that creates a subtle, modern look. It’s a good choice for a more contemporary home.
