Japanese Plaster: Original Solution for Interiors

Japanese plaster is an unusual combination of traditional plaster and wallpaper, which immediately indicates the originality of this solution. Although it is not yet as popular in Poland as in the West, it is enjoying growing interest, mainly due to its unique properties and unusual appearance.

What is Japanese Plaster?

This is an internal finish that, due to its ingredients, is not suitable for use on external facades. It is a combination of natural components such as cotton, mineral fibers and silk, as well as more modern cellulose fibers. It is relatively new in Poland, while in Japan it has been popular for many centuries.

Composition and properties of Japanese plaster

Today, to create Japanese plaster in our home, it is enough to purchase an appropriate dry mixture. Then you need to add the appropriate amount of water and selected pigments. Some mixtures also require the addition of glue as a binder for the finishing structure. Due to the natural ingredients, it is recommended to use products from the same batch to ensure that they have the same color. The idea is based on immersing various ingredients in natural glue. In addition to glue, you can find cotton, mineral fibers, cellulose fibers and quartz sand. These ingredients give the facade finished with Japanese plaster a unique texture, reminiscent of fabric.

Japanese plaster gives rooms a characteristic, warm design, combining elegance, luxury and comfort. It is an excellent thermal insulator and helps regulate humidity, which makes rooms more comfortable. It can be used in both dry and wet rooms after applying a special protective varnish. It is also easy to clean. The costs of such plaster depend on the type of plaster and the additives used. For example, prices start from around PLN 50. Labor costs usually range from PLN 17 to PLN 20 per square meter. Fixed costs such as furniture and floor protection products and primers also need to be taken into account.

Where to use Japanese plaster?

Japanese plaster can be used on various surfaces, but it is not suitable for rooms exposed to moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms. It can be successfully used in living rooms and other decorative rooms. Depending on the type of substrate, additional layers of primer may be required.
