There are a few common ceiling modifications HMD clients undertake: simple painting, wall papering and popcorn removal.

Keep in mind if you remove your textured ceiling (popcorn) you still need to factor in the costs of painting or papering it.  Also, if you have an ornate coffered ceiling the preparation, material required and time to complete the job properly will dictate significantly higher costs.
