There are many factors to consider when deciding whether to use plaster or drywall on a project. It’s important to understand the difference between the two methods and the skills required before making your decision. The property type, budget and time constraints plus the desired outcome will all affect your decision when choosing drywall or plaster.

The swirl artex in this B&B is making me sick - but not as bad as the cornice running over the window outside, oh, and the anaglypta wallpaper and the bodged join in the coving hiding behind the wooly tartan curtains.
You'd do better going for a pint than sitting there looking at the workmanship in your homeless hostel and feeling sick. End of the day it's someone else's property.

There again, I suppose if you've no money for shoes, then the price of a pint would be an issue.

Skim for me, just more solid and quicker, do both , drywall handy for some patching jobs and dormers with loads of tight angles . Imo
