Plaster In Home Decor: Pros And Cons And 25 Examples
If you don’t feel like usual plain walls and want to add a bit of texture and interest to the space, go for plaster. Plaster can be used for wall and ceiling decor, you may also try plaster backsplashes but before you do that, let’s find out some pros and cons.
Plaster has two main advantages: it helps to absorb noise and deter the spread of fire due to the physical and chemical properties. Besides, it looks very cool and vintage-inspired, which makes your home unique and personalized. It’s a simple way to add chic and to stand out with your home decor as not many people use this idea.
As for cons, though plaster is considered rather durable, plaster easily becomes loose and crack along the walls. In the result of poor workmanship, improper application, or excess moisture the material is more likely to crack or separate from the framework. Small cracks can be quickly fixed with DIY methods but if the problem is larger, repairing or removing your plaster can be time consuming and costly. Now let’s take a look at some ideas.
Plaster walls are a great idea for any space, from a bedroom to an entryway. It’s usually done in neutrals like white, off-white, grey, beige and their shades but you may go for any color you like: coral, blue, green or any other, add not only texture but also color to the walls, too. Plaster will easily fit any space from a rustic to a vintage one, and it looks cool with both vintage and ultra modern furniture. What can be more universal and interesting?
