Plaster: The Latest Trend in Home Design

Have you been scrolling through Pinterest or Instagram lately and noticing a trend in plaster accents in home design? Well, let me tell you, plaster is having a moment and we are loving it!

That’s right, this ancient building material that has been around for centuries is suddenly trendy again. But why?

Well, for starters, plaster has a certain warmth and texture that you just can’t get with drywall. It’s also more durable and longer lasting than drywall, so it’s a great investment for your home. Plus, it’s just plain stunning. Imagine walking into a room with beautiful, textured plaster walls. It’s like stepping back in time to a more elegant, romantic era.

But don’t think that plaster is just for traditional or old-fashioned homes. Oh no, plaster can be modern and sleek too. A smooth, white plaster finish can give a minimalist, contemporary vibe to a space. And with the use of stencils or other decorative techniques, plaster can take on any design style you desire.

Whether it’s a smooth finish on a wall or a textured effect on a lighting fixture, plaster adds a unique and charming touch to any space. And the best part is that it’s not just limited to walls. We’ve been seeing plaster on everything from tables to fireplace surrounds.

Speaking of fireplace surrounds, have you seen the trend of black plaster fireplace surrounds? Talk about a statement piece! It adds such a modern and edgy touch to a traditionally classic feature.

But plaster isn’t just for the bold and daring. Smooth, white plaster walls add a touch of elegance and timelessness to a space. It’s the perfect backdrop for any decor style.

If you’re feeling inspired to add some plaster to your home, we highly recommend giving it a try. It’s a fun and unique way to add character and interest to your space. And if you’re not ready to commit to a full plaster wall, try starting small with a plaster accent piece like a lamp or vase.

If you are in the market to add more plaster to your home, the most traditional method is to hire a professional plasterer to apply the plaster directly to your walls. However, this can be costly and time-consuming. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly and DIY option, there are plaster-like finishes available in paint form. These paints can be applied just like regular paint, but give the same textured, elegant finish as traditional plaster.

Valspar Flat Tintable Venetian Plaster Latex Interior Paint is a great option for those wanting the look of plaster without the high cost.

So go ahead and embrace the plaster trend! Your home (and Instagram feed) will thank you.
