You may have recently visited a friend or family member who had their wall surfaces textured with something that they called stucco. Depending on where you live you may not be all that familiar with stucco or you may not have seen interior stucco walls, but it really is a beautiful addition to any home, especially if you have a Spanish or mission style home.
Stucco has been used for centuries in many parts of the world and is actually a material that is a combination of an aggregate, a binder, and water. In many ways, stucco is not unlike cement as it is applied to a surface when it is wet and it then hardens as it dries. Stucco can be used for texturing walls indoors and out and is also used to texture ceilings. Many people don't stucco all of their walls, instead they stucco one focal point in the room, which adds color and texture all at once. This form of wall texture is not for everyone, but many find it very appealing.
Interior stucco walls can be a beautiful addition to any home. If you are looking for something a bit different to do in your home, this may be a very affordable choice. Many people like to texture walls in this way because it allows for them to do something original in every room and also allows you to add color as well as texture at the same time. Stucco does not need paint, instead, you get to choose the color stucco that you would like and it is tinted before you apply it to the walls. This makes choosing your stucco an important choice because once it is up, it is up, but it accomplishes both the color and texture elements of decorating in one step, which is a bonus for most homeowners.
When you stucco indoors you may choose not to stucco all four walls of a room, instead you may want to stucco just one wall and make it the focal point of the room. Others choose to stucco just the ceiling or the ceiling and one wall. Other homeowners choose to have special designs textured on their walls, and it really does add something special to the room.
If you are new to stucco and you don't feel like learning a whole lot of new techniques then you would be well advised to have a professional complete your interior wall finish. Stucco is something that you can learn how to do, but most people find that it takes a lot of practice and in the amount of time that you would have to take to learn the technique you could easily have your whole house textured and completed.
When you hire a professional you will find that they know the trade very well and they will be able to give you very specific information about how long it will take to complete the interior stucco walls in your home and the affect that it will give you. When you hire a professional you should be sure to hire someone that is licensed and bonded so that you have someone working in your home that is professional and will not end up coming after you for damages should they be injured in your home. A licensed and bonded professional is one that is serious about his or her business, and that is the type of person that you want working for you. Depending on where you live you may have to do a bit of work to find a skilled professional, but generally there are a few out there that will be able to do a great job in just about any area.
