When you think of terrazzo flooring, do schools, metro stations and corporate offices immediately come to mind? Well it should; these flooring options have been used extensively in the past for its highly versatile, solid and durable qualities, not to mention that it has been around for centuries. But did you know that modern terrazzo floors are becoming increasingly popular in residential interiors?
Terrazzo was invented in 15th century Venice as a way of using up marble remnants. Marble workers discarded odd-sized pieces and cut-offs into clay to create attractive terraces for themselves at home.
Today, terrazzo is composed of marble chips, granite, quartz and/or glass suspended in a cement or polymer binder. It can be made in nearly any color or style to create unique patterns and intricate designs. Durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance, terrazzo floors can also provide a green option for the eco-conscious design enthusiast.
