E very type of plaster ceiling has a ‘special’ ingredient that makes it distinctive from other types. There are some that contain gypsum, while there are others that contain limestone or marble particles. Venetian plaster ceiling is the best model for the latter.

Glossy Finish

A shiny Venetian plaster ceiling gives off a sense of softness and, at the same time, strength that true Italians possess.


Matte Finish

It is not very shiny, it is not looking very rough – it has just the perfection of a matte finish.

Natural Finish

The natural finish of a Venetian plaster ceiling is quite self-explanatory.

When you apply Venetian plaster ceiling, do not try to smoothen it out, let it harden, and do not paint it or burnish it or anything.


What is great about Venetian plaster ceiling is that it will never be an overkill. It is made to conform with how Italians are: simple yet classy.
