05 Jun Why you should consider Dragged Polished Plaster for your next project
Polished plaster has taken the interior design world by storm over the last few years, with residential and commercial customers falling in love with its luxurious appearance. However, if you want to add an extra dimension to your décor, you should consider the latest development – dragged polished plaster.
Here we explain what the product is, along with a few very good reasons to use it in your next interior design project.
What is dragged polished plaster?
As you probably know, polished plaster is a cost-effective alternative to natural stone such as marble. It mimics the appearance of natural stone, while being easy to apply and restore, and it can be used to create features such as columns and cornices, for a luxurious look.
Dragged polished plaster is similar, although instead of having a smooth finish, it has a distinctive textured finish. This makes it look even more natural, as it is inspired by the appearance of stone in the outdoor environment. Even though it is still classed as polished plaster, the finish is less shiny than regular polished plaster, making it ideal for creating a new look or providing a contrast to your existing polished plaster walls.
The product contains marble and quartz granules for an added touch of elegance and opulence. When applied by an experienced professional, the finish grows stronger over time, ensuring that your new look will last long into the future.
