The best plaster cornices for you and your home.
A plaster cornice is often the chosen decorative finish for a room, adding depth and character to the ceiling line. But it can have a very functional role too as a weatherproof barrier between other facades and the elements.
Originally stone or plaster cornices were used to smooth the joint between a wall and any horizontal feature, such as a ceiling.
Cornices were traditionally used for decoration but they also serve a functional purpose as a weatherproof barrier between walls and the roof. They can be made from a range of materials, including stone, wood and plaster which add depth and character to a room’s design. Plaster cornices are now mostly used to soften the transition between two surfaces with the same s treatment or two different surface treatments. While cornices have aesthetic value to add interest to your home, they also serve a practical purpose by creating an air cavity between the roof and wall. The cavity is also useful for helping protect the interior space from water damage during inclement weather.
