Texturing walls and ceiling

My first post, and the first time Im tackling a fixer home. I will be putting in a new ceiling and changing/modifying some of the interior walls - from plaster to drywall. My question, what are the options to texturing drywall other than orange peel?

I was looking to paint the walls and ceiling in other colors than white, and it seems that a smooth texture will look better when a wall is painted.

Would I go about the same way, and just use a smooth trowel to even out the texture, or are there other options?

Also how thick does the texture need to be on the walls and ceiling?

There are many texturizing techniques, go to your local paint store, or do-it-yourself store, they will have many examples.

Orange peel and knockdown are very popular today and very easy for a first timer to do.

Note: Don't rely on the texture to cover any sheetrock mistakes. Do do want perfectly smooth walls prior to texturizing.
