Ter­razzo is a com­pos­ite ma­te­rial cre­ated with left­over mar­ble, gran­ite quartz or glass chips poured into ce­ment or an epoxy binder. Rachel Gild­ing, of Beau­mont Tiles, says its in­cor­po­ra­tion as a sur­face is the next big thing in bath­rooms. Ter­razzo can be traced back to 16th cen­tury Venice and was made pop­u­lar in the 1920s but, says Rachel, “re­cent ad­vances in print­ing tech­nol­ogy have made it pos­si­ble for ter­razzo imi­ta­tion tiles to cap­ture ev­ery small de­tail in the fin­ish with­out need­ing to be sealed and main­tained. As a re­sult, they are per­fect for bath­rooms and wet ar­eas.” Plus, they’re an ideal floor­ing op­tion to bring styles like eclec­tic Bo­hemian and global fu­sion to life.
