Is Fibrous plaster a better alternative to Polyurethane?

Fibrous plaster, made from a mixture of plaster and reinforcing fibres, is considered a better alternative to polyurethane for certain types of decorative plaster moulding. This is because fibrous plaster offers a high level of versatility and durability. It can be used for both ornamental and structural purposes and is able to withstand wear and tear over time. Additionally, fibrous plaster is fire-resistant and can be easily sanded and painted, making it easy to change the colour or finish. All these features make fibrous plaster a great option for restoration and renovation projects where traditional methods and materials are desired to maintain the original style of the building.

How do I know which cornice/coving is right for my home?

When deciding on the perfect plaster cornice or coving for your home, it’s important to consider various factors such as the style of your home, the room or space you want to install it in, the ceiling height, and your personal preference. For a traditional or historic home, you may choose a plaster cornice or coving that aligns with that style. A contemporary home may call for a modern design. The room or space you want to install it in also plays a role, a living room or dining room may look best with a larger, more ornate design while a bathroom or kitchen may require a more functional design. Additionally, take note of the ceiling height and how it may impact your choice. Finally, it’s important to pick a plaster cornice or coving that you find visually pleasing and that complements the overall design of your home.

What is the difference between Fibrous plaster and In-situ moulding?

Fibrous plaster and in-situ moulding are both types of plaster moulding, but they have different methods of production. Fibrous plaster is pre-made moulding that is manufactured in a workshop, then transported to the installation site, while in-situ moulding is the process of creating plaster moulding on-site, directly in the location where it will be used. In-situ moulding requires more time and skill than pre-made fibrous plaster moulding. Both types of plaster moulding are durable and can be used for decorative purposes, but in-situ moulding allows for more flexibility and customisation.

What are the advantages of using cornices and ceiling centres?

Cornices and ceiling centres are popular architectural features that are often used to enhance the visual appeal of a room. Cornices, which are decorative mouldings that are installed along the top edge of a wall, have several advantages. They can be used to add a decorative touch to a room, hide imperfections in the ceiling, and create the illusion of a higher ceiling. Ceiling centres, which are decorative elements that are installed in the centre of a ceiling, also have several advantages. They can be used to add a decorative touch to a room, create the illusion of a taller or higher ceiling, and draw attention to a particular area of the room such as a chandelier or other focal point. Together, cornices and ceiling centres can be used to create a cohesive and visually appealing design in any room.

Are there any options for customizing decorative moulding to match my personal style or the style of my home?
