Ceiling plastering via Zoofy

Is your ceiling no longer presentable due to stains, cracks or other damage? Then it is time to plaster your ceiling. Plastering a ceiling is not something you do lightly, of course; it is important to have the necessary information beforehand in order to make the right choice. Fortunately, you don't have to look far for information, because in the article below you will discover everything you need to know about ceiling plastering costs and options!

Why plaster your ceiling?

Plastering your ceiling is certainly not an unnecessary luxury, as it will give your interior a sleek and neat look. Moreover, it is an absolute must if you plan to paint your ceiling. So plastering your bathroom ceiling as well as your living room ceiling is definitely a good idea. A good finish is very important for any room if you want to create the right atmosphere in your interior. Plastering your ceiling also has another advantage: the plaster has a fire-retardant effect.

Ceiling plastering: What is the best option for you?

Do you want to plaster your living room ceiling or rather your bathroom ceiling? It doesn't really matter much, as there are several options to choose from for each room. After all, plastering your ceiling is not always done in the same way. Find out more about the different options below!

Spray painting

Spray painting is the ideal choice if you are looking for a budget-friendly way to beautify your ceiling. Using a sprayer, a layer of plaster is applied to your ceiling. This proceeds very quickly, so the ceiling plastering cost won't be as steep. You don't have to worry about the look as spray painting is very efficient. Two layers are applied. With the first layer, unevennesses are eliminated and with the second layer, a granular structure is applied to your ceiling, the thickness and colour you can choose. Painting is therefore not necessary!

Ceiling smoothing

You can choose to have your ceiling plastered smooth. In that case, your ceiling is prepared for a post-treatment. You can have your ceiling painted or wallpapered afterwards. If you choose to have your ceiling smoothed, unevenness and cracks will be nicely removed. It is important to know that the cost of plastering the ceiling will depend on the option you choose. Wallpaper-ready plaster is a lot cheaper than sauce-ready plaster, because wallpaper-ready plaster can be a bit rougher. For sauce-ready plaster, it is important that your ceiling is perfectly smooth and that takes more time. So it makes sense that this option will be more expensive!


Sanding is another option you can choose. This option is popular, probably because it gives a very nice and trendy result. If you choose sanding, a granular plaster mortar will be applied to your ceiling in half strokes. The twisting movements make it unique. Because of this, finishing is not necessary; it is actually a finish in itself.

Decorative plaster

Ornamental plaster comes in different types. The most popular type is spachtelputz. This method is also used on walls. Spachtelputz incorporates stone grains, giving your ceiling a grainy, rough look. You can choose the grain thickness and colour. Other options are granol and rustic putz. These have a slightly different look. If you are not sure which option is best for you, you can always ask one of our professionals for advice!


If you want to give your ceiling a unique look, you can opt for ornaments. These are decorative mouldings made of plaster. You often find them in older homes, but they will also give a new home a nice, original look. They are available in different styles, so there is plenty of choice for every home.
