Ter­razzo mak­ing a come­back

Sackville Tribune - - SALTWIRE WHEELS -

Even if you’ve never heard the word, you’ve prob­a­bly seen ter­razzo be­fore.

A pop­u­lar floor­ing ma­te­rial in the 70s, this com­pos­ite ma­te­rial is usu­ally made from scraps of mar­ble, glass and gran­ite that are set into resin.

No longer rel­e­gated to hos­pi­tal and school floors, ter­razzo is mak­ing its way into mod­ern homes. Be­cause it’s man­made, this ver­sa­tile ma­te­rial can be found in al­most any colour, and de­pend­ing on the size of the chips of stone, can be as sub­tle or au­da­cious as you want.

If you want to in­te­grate ter­razzo into your home, con­sider us­ing it as a coun­ter­top in lieu of gran­ite, or for a shower wall in­stead of the stan­dard ce­ramic tiles. If you’re ten­ta­tive to fully em­brace the trend but still want to try it out, ter­razzo prints are pop­ping up on all sorts of dec­o­ra­tions and fur­ni­ture, from lamps and coast­ers to cof­fee ta­bles and barstools.

If you’re look­ing for an in­ter­est­ing way to up­date your home, ter­razzo may be the ticket.
