Why did you decide to have magnetic plaster installed?
I work for British Gypsum and so I knew about the product as it was being developed. At the time I was redecorating our bedroom to convert it into a home office. I thought the product would give us a unique feature for one of the walls in the office. I liked the idea of being able to use the wall as a creative space for my work projects.
How did you find the process of having the product installed?
The plasterer who installed the product was very tidy and we were surprised by how quick it was to install and also by the lack of mess. We put down some sheets to protect the new flooring and any excess material was wiped off by the plasterer so there was no overspill onto to either the skirting or adjacent wall ceiling surfaces. We only waited for 48 hours then we painted the wall.
How have you used the wall for the past 6 months?
Initially I used the wall to help me when I was working from home. I used the wall for work projects using it to map out the big picture. However since then Charlotte has come along, so working from home is not as easy and the wall has become more of an art wall. As Charlotte is changing so much, I am always changing the photos I display, the ones on the wall currently are about three weeks old and there are already new photos waiting to go up. I also use the wall to capture memories such as holidays and my old fishing photos.
