With residential and commercial customers falling in love with the luxurious appearance of polished plaster, it's no wonder it has taken the interior design world by storm over the last couple of years. That's why, if you want to add something unique to your décor, you should consider the latest development – textured polished plaster. Here we explain what it is, along with a few ways you can use it in your next interior design project.
What is textured polished plaster? Textured polished plaster is a type of polished plaster that mimics the appearance of natural stone, while being easy to apply and restore. Instead of being smooth like traditional polished plaster, it has a distinct textured finish. It is less shiny than regular polished plaster as it is inspired by the appearance of stone in the outdoor environment. There is an increasing appreciation for natural materials in design at the moment and there’s a growing focus on blurring the architectural line between indoors and out.
Spilt stone, Bamboo, Dragged and Zen are just a few examples of textured polished plaster.
Textured polished plaster is ideal for creating a new look or providing a contrast to your existing polished plaster walls. When applied by an experienced professional, the finish grows stronger over time, ensuring that your new look will last long into the future.
