Plastering Question

Do i need to paint plastered walls?

i have two end walls of loft space recently plastered and wondered if i can leave them unpainted or do i need to paint them to seal them and reduce dust? is the slight plaster dust that is on them dangerous to inhale? the loft is used for storage...
thanks jb

Hi there
There is no real reason to paint them ,maybe if you wanted to make the loft area lighter paint them white to help reflect the light in the loft and make it brighter
it will stop a little dust but no health problems
other than that there is no reason
