23 TILE TRENDS
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.
