Polished Plastering London
Polished Plaster has been used in London for quite sometime now and used to great effect in a wide range of environments. From the Hi-end residential properties to classy bars and restaurants where ever you are in London theres a good chance you are only a stones throw away from a hidden polished plaster interior whether a feature wall in an office building or a vast expanse of polished plaster hidden deep in londons infamous residential basements, perhaps sitting above a swimming pool mirroring the reflections of the water beneath.
For Marmo Stucco London and especially polished plaster in London is a very important topic for us and we are keen on keeping on top of the latest polished plaster trends whether it be a 'Colour of the year' or textures that our architects are pioneering we like to know and keep up to date with these trends so they can be incooperated into our finishes / colour range.
Its no surprise that the majority of our polished plaster applications can be found in London. With 90% of our enquiries coming from London based architectural practices or construction companies it really does seem that London is set to stay on top of its game regarding architecture and design and with it we are sure that polished plaster will continue to be used and incooperated into the designers designs.
When we mention 'You are only a stones throw away' from a polished plaster interior in London we believe this is true - we also believe you are most probably only a short distance away from one of our London based Polished Plaster projects.
We have worked all over London From Central London to all other four extremities, Working in Londons landmarks such as "The Gherkin" or St. Marys Axe creating a one of bespoke application for use in a sky high private members lounge. To Office lobby areas in Mayfair, Luxury department stores such as Harrods - London, Selfridges and Westfield.
You can be sure to find our polished plaster close by when walking around the famous city.
Marmo applied 250m2 of our pitted polished plaster finish to the
newly renovated foyer to the Lindbury theatre which can be accessed from Bow st. The areas are now open to the public and are certainly something special, great achievement!

The Sun Inn Splendour was undergoing a quick refurbishment just before Christmas. We were contracted in to apply our distressed concrete CW polished plaster finish but in a more natural aged plaster colour tone to match in with the pubs interior design. Our concrete finishes are not just available in concrete tones, they can be created using any colours desirable!
The finish is a hugely effective finish especially when we apply our "colourwash" to the polished plaster which is generally a darker tone to enhance all the textured area of the finish.
What does polished plaster look like? Where do we start with this question? Polished Plaster, also known as Venetian Plaster can take many forms. Originally created to emulate different types of stone, mainly marble, the majority of our polished plasters look like natural stone. From highly polished marble effects to more textured pitted limestone looks the possibilities seem endless.
As the years have passed by, creative artisans in our industry are constantly looking at evolving the different looks and finishes usually following the design trends of the time. There are different types of plasters used to create the different polished plaster finishes. From pre mixed putties to powder plasters that can be enhanced using different sized marble grains. One of the most notorious shifts has been companies creating there own line of concrete finishes as the concrete trend took off in the industry around 5-7 years ago and is still going strong to this day.
The most recent trend that has emerged has been the use of liquid metal finishes and metallic waxes, shifting the look away from natural stone but still staying true to the natural aesthetics of the raw material used to create the finishes.
We are often sent images of different types of stone or surfaces that one of our clients would like us to match and this in turn is what provides us and others with the creativity to further evolve the look of polished plaster, pushing the boundaries and changing the techniques used to create something that looks truely special.
As shown on this page and throughout our website, Marmo Stucco are experts in Polished Plaster applications and have a vast polished plaster portfolio built predominantly in the city of London.
