Question:

I have removed long strip lights from my kitchen and it has left damaged artex/bare plasterboard.?

How can I best cover up or disguise where the old strip lights were? Will new artex be the same colour as the existing? Should I consider repainting the ceiling?

Answer:

For a professional looking job you should repaint the ceiling. Use a lightweight premixed spackling compound...apply it over the damaged plasterboard with a putty knife and smooth to make a flush surface, after it is completely dry, sand any rough or uneven areas if necessary, paint with primer, then paint.

I was just at my sister-in-law's place and what she did to her bathroom ceiling after installing a fan was: paint the ceiling in the colour you like and then crinkle tissue paper up and after unfolding it apply to ceiling, smoothing as you go, let dry and repaint. This gives a crinkle appearance to the ceiling but helps to hide any marks that are left on the ceiling by removing the lights. She said next time she would put a glaze in the paint so it wouldn't dry so fast as she had to work really fast to cover the ceiling.
