What is the Stucco Wall Effect?

Stucco is a cement-type mixture made of sand, Portland cement, lime, and water. It is considered a thin “finish coat,” the outermost visible layer, and can be painted. Stucco offers an impeccably exotic feel that helps your home appear elegant yet welcoming. 

Stucco is applied using one of three methods: one-coat, two-coat, and three-coat. They vary by composition, what surfaces they work best with, and speed of completion. One-coat methods are speedier, while three are the gold standard and most durable.

Achieving Stucco Wall Effect with Wallpapers

To achieve the stucco wall effect with wallpapers, you can use textured faux plaster wallpapers. These wallpapers add the look of plaster or stucco to walls, creating a fabulous collection of faux textured wallpapers. With designs ranging from beautifully artistic to rustic and unrefined, each pattern has individual detail and highly unique finishes.

While traditional stucco typically involves the application of a mixture of sand, Portland cement, lime, and water onto walls, we can replicate this appearance using visually textured wallpapers.. These wallpapers are designed to mimic the look of stucco, providing the visual interest that stucco offers.

These wallpapers come in various designs, from beautifully artistic to rustic and unrefined; each pattern has individual detail and highly unique finishes. This allows you to bring the authentic stucco style to your home without needing actual plastering or coating.
