Terrazzo is a versatile and durable flooring system renowned for its exquisite beauty and timeless appeal. It consists of a mixture of marble, granite, quartz, or glass chips combined with cement or epoxy binder to create a smooth and seamless solid surface. The surface can be ground and polished to achieve a high-gloss finish, revealing the natural beauty of the aggregates.
Originating in Italy during the 15th century, terrazzo was initially developed as an economical flooring solution for Italian workers’ homes. Over time, terrazzo evolved as a form of art, with skilled artisans incorporating intricate designs and creative patterns into the flooring surface.
Its durability, low maintenance, and aesthetic versatility made it a preferred option for architects and designers. With advancements in manufacturing techniques, diverse colors, aggregates, and finishes are available, allowing for greater design flexibility. Terrazzo is no longer confined to floors but is also used for wall cladding, countertops, and furniture.
Today, terrazzo continues to be valued for its durability, timeless elegance, and sustainability. Its longevity ensures that terrazzo floors remain beautiful and functional for generations.
