5 Reasons why Terrazo tiles are pretty popular

This sustainable material its making a comeback in home decoration. 

The Terrazo tile trend has taken over interiors and homes recently; thanks to its versatile appearance and practical benefits. If you’re looking for a unique surface option that’s warmer than marble and more interesting than ceramic tile, this is one solution.

The beauty and textural quality of modern Terrazo has made them a popular choice for attracting interest in contemporary spaces.

As one of the biggest trends in home decorating, Terrazo has become a favorite choice for floor and wall tiles in bathrooms as well as kitchens.

1. Durability

Terrazo is extremely durable and is more resilient than other tile materials, making them ideal for use as flooring in high traffic areas. Not all Terrazo is made equal. Cheap manufactured Terrazo can produce brittleness, porosity and discoloration.

Italian Terrazo is produced under strict conditions to ensure that the material is never compromised, resulting in an excellent quality product.

2. Ecological

Terrazo is considered one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly materials. It is typically made from a mixture of recycled glass and natural aggregates such as marble, granite and quartz, which provide a unique mottled appearance, and is held together by a resin or concrete base. It is then sandblasted to your desired finish.

3. Variety In Designs

Each piece of Terrazo is truly unique, and comes in almost every color imaginable, as custom blends and colors can be made, from bold hues to natural tones, so anything from a modern monochromatic look to an artistic mosaic design can be achieved.

4. Versatility

In addition to their durability, Terrazo tiles are water and heat resistant and easy to cut, making them easy to work with and ideal for use not only as flooring, but in a variety of applications. Terrazo surfaces in bathrooms and kitchens are becoming increasingly popular. Terrazo tiles are timeless and suit all spaces, from traditional to contemporary, as well as exteriors (with the right finish).


5. Cost-effectiveness

Because Terrazo is durable enough to last a lifetime, requires very little maintenance and simply never goes out of style, it’s an investment that will fascinate you.
