Terrazzo, which means “terrace” in Italian, was originally used in public spaces for its durability and low maintenance but was eventually found to be easily customizable and chic. Its originally made of marble, quartz, glass, granite and stones.
If you think it only belongs on the floors of elementary school hallways, or outdoors think again. This trendy tile is taking over the architectural and interior design world in more ways than you might think in the last couple of years.
Designers are selecting terrazzo for countertops, backsplashes, wall tile, furniture, lighting and decor.
Terrazzo is becoming popular again because the quality has increased while the price has not.
