Terrazzo making a comeback
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.
