Smooth ceilings are what you find in your bathrooms and kitchen. Stipple and popcorn refer to the same ceiling type I believe.

Stipple ceilings are sprayed and hide most of the drywall joint imperfections and therefore require less labor to finish. Smooth ceilings require more time and labor.

an additional note to Mark & Lynda's answer.

If you wish to get a smooth ceiling rather than the popcorn ceiling the builder might charge extra for this.

We paid an extra $3K to have the entire house done in smooth ceiling. I never liked the stipple style, smooth makes the rooms look bigger and cleaner in my opinion.

Wow! What a great price! Mattamy doesn't offer this but they have the following expensive choices. I might have to settle for the popcorn ugliness!

California knockdown ceiling treatment for homes less than or equal to 2000 sq. ft. $3936

California knockdown ceiling treatment for homes over 2000 sq. ft. $5903

Orange peel ceiling treatment for homes less than or equal to 2000 sq. ft. $3306

Orange peel ceiling treatment for homes over 2000 sq. ft. $4959

That is surprising that Mattamy doesn't offer it. Because we purchased smooth ceilings on our house with Mattamy in Wheelers Mill for $900.

Hello,

I am also thinking about having smooth ceiling on the 2nd floor...
1st floor is smooth already. They quoted us $2500 for the 2nd floor only.
Do you think it's worth it? I backed out when I got the quote but now after this chain of posts...I am reconsidering it.

There were some negative feedback on smooth ceilings on the 2nd floor on the forum.
Some said, it wasn't staright and that it was not worth it.

What are your thoughts?

I only put smooth cielings on my main floor.. I heard that you see more imperfections on the 2nd floor due to the roof trusses no I opted not to do it.. To me it was more important on the main floor obviously. But then again I have been in Model homes where the 2nd floor was smooth and it looked great.. totally up to you.. BTW $2500 seems a lot for one floor.. I paid only $1000 for my main floor.
