What are terrazzo tiles?
Terrazzo tiles originate from 16th-century Italy. The word ‘terrazzo’ deriving from the Latin word ‘terra’. Terrazzo’s unique origin is a part of its appeal. The process was developed as a solution to recycle the stone offcuts from other processes. As a result, this composite material quickly grew in popularity across Europe. These tiles offer a Mediterranean flair to homes and outdoor spaces across the continent today.
Why choose terrazzo?
Terrazzo is an ideal solution for spaces with plenty of foot traffic as a highly hard-wearing material. Equally, this material is as beautiful as it is practical.
With seemingly endless colour combinations, it’s possible to match just about any colour scheme. From palest cream to deepest green and grey. Whatever result you’d like, this flexible material fits the mould.
Above all, the versatility of terrazzo makes this a practical choice for multiple areas of the home. Terrazzo is generally made in a honed finish which suits our Australian market.
How to maintain terrazzo tiling
Terrazzo should be sealed prior to installation, to ensure it does not stain, and also remains easy to clean. With little attention, it can stay looking its best. Terrazzo is an extremely durable material.
