Is Venetian Plaster Expensive?
Venetian plaster is a well-known Italian feature wall and ceiling finish that may be applied by an expert to rapidly create a stone, marble, or concrete-like look on a few centimetres of thickness.
Venetian plaster materials cost in the UK varies depending on the quantity, quality, and colour of the plaster used, but on average, they start at £4.60 and go up to £19 per metre square. Included are wax and primer. High-gloss Venetian plasters and multi-coloured textured effects with waxes tend to be more expensive than mildly textured, satin, or smooth single-color finishes.
Venetian plaster supplies are far less expensive than supply and fit, which can cost anywhere from £65 to £120+ per metre square, however it’s not uncommon to pay as much as £400 per metre square for a really durable finish with an amazing design
Colour matching, a large number of samples, or sample walls can all add to the cost of Venetian plastering, not to mention difficult access or specific protectors for long-term durability.
The high cost is due to the hand-applied nature of this magnificent bespoke finish, which takes at least 3 to 5 days to complete.
