Why it's a good idea to use Venetian Plaster

Polished Plaster

Venetian plaster also known as polished plaster is a stunning, long-lasting, and timeless wall finish that can be used to add texture and beauty to your home. Natural light is caught and radiated by its layers. It is made of marble dust and when applied produces a polished, marble-like finish. By adding coloured pigment, a wide variety of colours can be created.

Read on for some of the reasons why marble plastering might just be the best choice for you.


Venetian plaster is not limited to only being used on walls, it can also be used on other surfaces such as ceilings, furniture, wooden panels, plasterboard, after the appropriate preparation has taken place. This makes it a popular choicew due to the fact that it is versatile, both in colour and finish.


The finish of Venetian plaster transforms into a rock-like substance once it has dried, making it highly-durable. 

Easy maintenance

Venetian polished plaster requires little maintenance. Cleaning simply requires a soft cloth with warm water and perhaps mild soap if needed.

When applied, Venetian plaster dries to a durable finish and as it is less prone to cracking and shrinking, it can be an investment.

As it is applied in layers, it is easy to repair and to return to the superb smooth appearance without the need for re-plastering the entire wall.

Environmentally Friendly

Since Venetian plaster is made of non-toxic materials, it does not release harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) making it environmentally friendly and an attractive option.

The appeal of Venetian plaster is that it allows walls to breathe making it suitable for locations with high humidity. The plaster acts as a defence against bacteria and fungus formation on the wall and therefore fights mould and inhibiting its growth.
