Plaster is a preferred type of cladding and gives the interior of the building a nicer finish and adds an extra layer between the external cladding and the usable space in the building.
So why do people choose plaster over other types of internal cladding or not using internal cladding at all? Although you don’t need to use cladding it acts as an additional barrier to the outside world and provides extra sound and thermal insulation to your home. Basically it makes your home more attractive and makes it easier to decorate, so how is it attached to the building? Well, after the brackets have been installed to the building the support rails will be attached and then the cladding will be attached to the building’s structure. Just as you can choose different colours of paint, cladding can also be used in a variety of different ways according to your personal tastes and preferences.
Plaster is the most popular type of plaster that is used in Brisbane and although most buildings are plastered from top to bottom that isn’t the only way it can be used. You can choose to mix it up to create a different style and give your home a unique edge to it. So what types of ways can plaster be used? You can use it to create decorations without having to constantly worry about repainting as fashions change.
An example would be to use vertical plaster panels. Choosing to decorate in this way will give the illusion of height which means that your building will look more spacious than it really is. Although most plaster is white, you can choose different colours based on your individual preferences. As one of Brisbane’s leading plasterers we can recommend the best way to use the panels if you have a smaller building and want to create the illusion that it is bigger than it really is. The plaster can also be painted the colour that you want, so if you want to create a feature wall you can do so. Our Brisbane plasterers can cut and paint the plaster into the shape, size and colour that you desire.
In addition to creating the illusion of a larger space, plaster could also be used to draw attention to another aspect of your home. If you wanted to draw attention to a fireplace or shelving in the wall cavity then you could choose to have plaster that was cut into different shapes including vertical panels triangular shapes, however the possibilities are endless. Just talk to one of our Brisbane plasterers and we will be able to point you in the right direction.
That’s not the only way you can use plaster though. Despite popular belief you don’t have to plaster your entire wall. Instead you can just plaster a portion of the wall which will give it a contemporary look and add interest when people visit your home. This type of plastering is especially popular in Brisbane living rooms.
Whilst some people want a contemporary look, plaster can also be used to create a retro look. Instead of painting the plaster white, it could be varnished with different textures to give the impression that the property has been well lived in. These panels could be horizontal however vertical panels are the most common panels to be used. Using varnish will also create different textures in the home. These options can be used in any room within the house including the kitchen or the bathroom where options are usually limited. It means you can bring your personal touch into the home.
Most people don’t know this, but plaster can also be cut into panels to conceal doorways and other joins. Therefore if you want to hide a cupboard or room from your guests you can do so. It will give the home a more refined look that both you and your guests will enjoy.
Plaster can be tailored to suit your needs and personal preferences whether it’s a house or a commercial property. If you wanted to create a more intimate feel in a boardroom then you could choose to use vertical panels for the interior of the room. Afterwards you could varnish the panels to create a classy atmosphere rather than sticking to white.
