What is Polished Plaster

Polished plaster is simply beautiful floor and wall covering

Wall and ceiling finishing that has the wow factor. Elegant homes, retail stores, hospitality and so much more, have been using polished plaster for centuries showcasing stunning effects that have left people astounded.

With technology, the process for Polished Plaster has vastly improved and has allowed decorators, interior designers, commercial project managers, and homeowners to go that bit further with stunning walls and ceiling coverings. This has opened the market for all to use this beautiful method for many different reasons.

One of the main reasons is value for money; Polished Plaster actually gets stronger as it gets older meaning it is an excellent investment when compared with other finishes.

The Process

The lime based product made from slaked lime and marble dust chips, is mixed with water to create a lime plaster which can be traced back to the Egyptians. When the limestone is exposed to carbon monoxide in the air; the mixture turns back to limestone. So really this is extremely magical.

The feel of polished plaster is very thin and very translucent in depth and appearance which not only makes it much easier to use but much easier to maintain than ordinary Micorcement and Tadelakt where it is more difficult and costly to fix blemishes meaning the re-plastering of an entire wall is often necessary.

The Cost

Polished Plaster from Deco Cemento offers excellent value for money!

Unlike paint that needs to be re-applied every few years. Using polished plaster has a life long finish and as it’s very strong and is unlikely to crack. Furthermore, it has many properties including being mould resistant.
