How Do I Knock Off the Knockdown Texture?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: Every room and ceiling in my house is outfitted in knockdown texture. It was like this when I moved in, and I didn't think it would be a problem, but now that I'm wanting to use wallpapers or go with a paint scheme that requires clean lines, I'm finding the texture very limiting to my decor. How can I work with or around this bumpy burden?
