Polystyrene coving is often thought to be the cheaper choice, so it’s ideal for smaller budgets or if you just want a smaller, plain profile. Polystyrene coving is a more lightweight coving material, but it’s also quite soft and delicate. This material is easily damaged and requires great care to fit.

Polystyrene coving is also more absorbent than plaster coving, so it tends to need more coats of paint to achieve a smooth finish. In terms of cost effectiveness, polystyrene coving can be less expensive than other materials. However, you risk having to replace any broken or damaged pieces.
Polystyrene coving is a budget-friendly investment that’s ideal for spaces that are gently used. Polystyrene is lightweight and delicate and more susceptible to damage.

Plaster coving is generally heavier and more brittle. Installation is best done by two people with good knowledge of how to fit coving. On the plus side, plaster coving has a naturally bright and smooth finish, so it doesn’t need so many coats of paint. This is especially true for paper coated plaster coving, which needs comparatively less coats of paint.

Plaster coving is often thought to be the most attractive choice. Various mouldings like ceiling roses and door surrounds can be used to help you create a consistent design for the entire room.
Plaster coving is a relatively expensive yet more durable feature that lasts a lifetime. The finished surface is less absorbent than Polystyrene, which means plaster coving requires fewer coats of paint to achieve the desired finish. Moreover, it’s a valuable investment for a large, aesthetic profile. It won’t be wrong to say that plaster coving is a one-time investment that pays for itself in more than one way.
