What Is Venetian Plaster?
Even though Venetian plaster has been around since Greco-Roman times, a lot of area residents and business owners don’t know what it is. If they are familiar with Venetian plaster, they may associate it with the Tuscan décor trend that was popular in the 1990s. To fully appreciate Venetian plaster’s enduring versatility and aesthetic qualities, it’s imperative to look beyond that design movement to understand its nearly limitless potential and possibilities.
Despite the geographic reference in its name, Venetian plaster is actually a general term that refers to how the material is made. This means you can use the terms “Venetian plaster” and “lime plaster” interchangeably. Venetian or lime plaster refers to putty that’s made by combining fired limestone with water. When applied to a wall, the putty is exposed to carbon dioxide. As that happens, it returns to its natural state as limestone.
How Shoreline Painting Differs From Other Venetian Plaster Contractors
Customers often ask us how the material differs from similar products. The primary difference between Venetian plaster and other kinds of plaster is that Venetian plaster doesn’t have aggregates mixed in. The added aggregates in other plasters typically make them thicker than Venetian plaster.
Venetian plaster stands out with its pure and sleek finish, which is contrary to conventional plasters laden with aggregates. Its thickness, or rather the lack of it, sets it apart, rendering a luxurious and authentic finish. Unlike standard wall finishes, Venetian plaster requires an artist’s touch. At Shoreline Painting, our painters are trained in age-old techniques, ensuring each stroke resonates with the heart of this ancient art form.
Venetian plaster is more than just a finish — it’s a statement. It speaks of discerning tastes, an appreciation for artistry and the pursuit of timeless beauty. Whether you’re renovating a heritage property, designing a modern penthouse or setting up a chic commercial space, SPD Venetian plaster promises an unparalleled veneer of luxury.
Why Choose Our Venetian Plaster Services?
Venetian plaster can transform a residential or commercial space into a welcoming area that boasts both visual and textural appeal. Here are some of the qualities that make Venetian plaster such a wonderful alternative to paint in so many applications:
- Deep luminance: With its layered application, Venetian plaster exudes a dance of depth and shimmer, echoing warmth and light.
- Universal elegance: Whether you resonate with a minimalist vibe or classic opulence, Venetian plaster seamlessly adapts to your aesthetic narrative.
- Durability and ease: Far from its ancestors, today’s Venetian plaster stands resilient against scuffs. With simple maintenance akin to painted walls, it promises lasting beauty.
- Health and home: As a nontoxic material, it’s free from volatile organic compounds. Its breathable nature wards off mold and mildew, ensuring a healthy environment.
- Lavish living spaces: High-end homes seeking a touch of Italian luxury find Venetian plaster the perfect choice. The natural reflective properties create expansive and luminous spaces, ideal for grand lounges and dining rooms.
- Boutique hotels and resorts: Venetian plaster offers an exotic and serene ambiance, making it ideal for establishments aiming to provide their guests an escape into a world of indulgence.
- Art galleries and studios: Artists and curators understand the power of a backdrop. The depth and character of Venetian plaster complement art pieces, making them pop yet never overshadowing them.
- Earthy, soft and iridescent appearance: Applied in layers, Venetian plaster has the appearance of depth, movement and iridescence. As a natural product, Venetian plaster shows off a captivating interplay of light and softness.
- Matches any aesthetic: Whether your aesthetic is minimalist, classic, Southwestern or something else, you can pull it off with Venetian plaster.
- Longevity: Unlike the old days when a single scuff mark would require you to re-plaster an entire wall, today’s Venetian plaster is low-maintenance and long-lasting. Blemishes are easily repaired in patches using damp cloths, a mild cleaning agent and light sanding. Venetian plaster needs so little maintenance that many people compare caring for a wall covered with it to maintain a painted wall.
- Nontoxic: Venetian plaster is nontoxic. As such, the material doesn’t release any volatile organic compounds into the air.
- Resistant to mold and mildew: One of the most popular draws of Venetian plaster is its breathability. This laudable quality makes the material resistant to both mold and mildew because moisture can escape from the plaster.
