Heavy Mud Knockdown Walls.. anyway to make it less 70/80s?

Any ideas or tips on how to make heavily textured scraped-mud walls a little less vintage 80s?

I'm pretty limited in budget and want to keep the scale fairly small since I have 2 bathroom renovations coming up, but would really like to hear your thoughts and experiences working with this texture and its... character. ;)

Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thank you

Howdy, try spraying some water onto the wall and see if the texture loosens if so you can spray with a weed sprayer and use a drywall texture blade and remove the texture and then you will need to float or re texture the walls with lighter texture...

Thank you for the suggestion!

I just had one question... by floating did you mean just leaving it as is after scraping?

Thanks!
