If you are looking to add some extraordinary flair to your space and create a statement without being too over-the-top, then we recommend considering the Terrazzo collection. The tiles come in a wide variety of designs, most of them featuring shades from a subtle colour palette.
They are made by mixing marble, granite, quartz, or glass chips into a cement binder. Terrazzo tiles offer an attractive mottled appearance, as well as being one of the most robust tiling materials available on the market. The history of Terrazzo tiles goes back to the Neolithic era when it was initially created from marble chips set in clay and sealed with goat’s milk.
Today’s Terrazzo tiles retain their vintage handmade charm (without the goat’s milk!) and are still made by hand using natural pigments. Due to the cement and marble content they can be used for high traffic and commercial projects, and only need one coat of sealer before and after grouting. Whether you choose patterned or plain tiles, they will add energy and instant charisma to your living space.
Geometric patterned tiles are at the centre of the Terrazzo collection. The dynamic and optically challenging design of the Porta Romana is as equally eye-catching as the gentle waves of grey and beige in the Monza tile. You can easily imagine them as a statement flooring backdrop to a modern space with simple, modern furniture and fittings to perfect the scene.
The modest monochrome shades of Midnight and Snow from the Terrazzo Field range laid in a chequerboard pattern will add a fresh and contemporary look to any room. They are an ideal solution for a space that already has lots of colourful furnishings.
Terrazzo tiles have a long history for a reason – they are beautiful and durable, and this makes them the perfect solution for flooring in homes of any style. Take a look at our full selection to be inspired.
