Frequently mistaken for a completely smooth finish, a minimalist-style stucco achieves a subtly sleek and uniform appearance, reminiscent of modern architectural design. To create this distinct texture, the brown coat is meticulously applied to ensure a flat, seamless surface, resulting in a refined and minimalistic aesthetic. Depending on the chosen application method and materials, it can be troweled on or sprayed. The minimalist-style stucco boasts a predominantly smooth surface with minimal underlying variations.
Often confused with a smooth finish, a Santa Barbara or Casita stucco finish is formulated to achieve a semi-smooth, irregular texture similar to the early California adobe style buildings. To achieve it’s unique texture, the brown coat is not flat like in the smooth coat, giving it depth, character and elegance. Depending on the materials used, it can be applied with a trowel or sprayed on. Santa Barbara consists of a nearly completely smooth surface with underlying undulations.
Architectural Aesthetic: Consider the overall design and architectural style of your property. Minimalist-style stucco is often associated with contemporary and modern homes. If your design vision leans towards clean lines, simplicity, and a sleek appearance, this stucco finish might be a great fit. It complements minimalist interiors and can create a harmonious flow from the exterior to the interior of your space.
Maintenance and Durability: Assess the level of maintenance and durability required. Minimalist-style stucco tends to be low-maintenance compared to more textured finishes. It provides a durable surface that can withstand the elements, making it suitable for various climates. However, it’s essential to ensure proper application and maintenance to keep it looking pristine over time.
A smooth stucco finish, also known as a fine cement based finish, is one of the most difficult textures to achieve and is also the most popular among homeowners because it’s easiest to clean and offers a finish closest to looking like a painted home. Smooth finishes can be customized by adding different colors to get a “mottled look” leading to a Santa Barbara finish.
