The plastering material has grown in popularity in the interior design space – it is a versatile material that can be customized with unique formats. In addition to plaster and linings, plaster is also used in shelves, shelves and niches. Generally they are embedded in plasterboard walls, creating an exclusive space to dispose of the decorative objects in the area.

Advantages of plaster shelves

Modernity : In addition to an elegant and contemporary solution, the use of points of light can make the shelf, especially ornaments and decorative objects, much more attractive.


Place : One of the main advantages in terms of a common shelf is that it is possible with plaster to embed niches in the walls, which occupy a small space, if we compare it with traditional furniture. The shelf can be present in a TV board without, for example, contact with the floor, with the lower area being kept free to place other objects.

Custom made : this means the shelf can adapt to different designs and spaces, even in bolder formats.

Cleaning : With less space required, cleaning is made easier by using just a feather duster to clear the build-up of dust on the niches and shelves.

An important recommendation is to evaluate exactly what the needs are – so that you can create well-defined spaces according to the objects you want to keep on the shelf. Another relevant point is the employment of skilled workers in the application of plaster of paris, ideal to achieve the expected result.
