    Plastering a quarter of a ceiling?

    Plasterers

    Hello,

    I am knocking down a stud wall between a store room and a bedroom to make it bigger.
    The bedroom ceiling is smooth and in good condition whereas my storeroom is artex.
    Basically I want to know when the wall is down would the entire ceiling of thr combined rooms have to be plastered, or could just the new quater be plastered?

    Thank you

    "No, you could just plaster over the Artex and blend it into the bedroom ceiling. So once painted will look like 1 big ceiling.
    No need to re-plaster the bedroom ceiling if in good condition.
    Hope this helps"

    "Hi, it's easy for a plasterer to skim the ceiling and blend it into the existing smooth ceiling, so as there won't be any visible signs of where one ceiling starts"

    "Hi Emily, being a plasterer as long as there isn't too much of a discrepancy between the 2 ceiling levels, you would be able to plaster just the Artex and feather it to nothing so no filling is required, I have done this many times so as it can't be noticed"

    "As others have said yes in theory you can patch and feather into the existing ceiling. But for me pva the whole lot first coat with a couple of handfuls of bonding in the skim, second coat, trowel up to smooth Matt finish."

    "Would be ok to just plaster the ceiling that is Artex, and blend into the existing ceiling that is smooth, good plasterer should be able to do that, hope this helps. Thanks"
