Some plasterers can even achieve looks such as leather or even a grainy wood. Because it is an art form plasterers can work to create the unique finishing touch you desire.

Exhaust fans plays an important role in the look of a well finished kitchen. Interesting focal points can be created to draw attention to your exhaust fan. They can be accented with a special wall feature to mimic the look of interesting chimneys of ancient homes seen in many areas of the world. You can add customized detail to the finish applied by plasterers such as classic moulding. You can even have special, unusually shaped bulk heads created as part of the exhaust fan feature.

Decorative Ceilings
The ceiling is often an overlooked detail in the kitchen. However your kitchen can be made cosier with details such as a coffered ceiling, an inset decorative bulk head or a specialty plaster effect to create texture. Plasterers can advise you on the many techniques they can use and which ones are best suited for your particular style and theme.

Therefore you can look at areas over seating, islands without cook tops and even down the centre of a galley style kitchen for the best spots to add a decorative texture to your kitchen ceiling.
