What is Terrazzo flooring?

Terrazzo appeared in Venice in the 15th century as a way to use the remains of marble. Residents of the city mixed cement, stone, marble, glass, creating seamless mosaic floors with the original patterns. In the 20s of the last century, this technology was revived in the United States. Terrazzo was actively used to decorate office buildings, subway stations, and industrial facilities. A few years ago, terrazzo became popular again, but in the form of ceramic tiles. By decorating the floor with terrazzo tiles you create an elegant accent in interior design. This material is strong, durable, and resistant to damage. It does not require polishing. Other advantages of the material include:

  • unique design;
  • eco-friendly;
  • affordable price;
  • wide range of colors.
