Terrazzo tiles are a wonderful material to use in large scale design and architecture projects, as they are incredibly hard-wearing, extremely attractive, and brilliantly flexibile, working just as well as a subtle compliment to an overall design as a bold statement that draws the eye. Terrazzo tiles allow you to get the amazing effect of marble tiling without costing the earth.
Over the last few years, terrazzo tiles have become increasingly popular in all manner of design and architecture projects. Their versatility, durability and sustainability make them the perfect material for big projects, and they work equally well inside and out. As there is a nearly limitless choice of colour and style when it comes to terrazzo tiles, they are perfect for almost every design concept you can think of.
Terrazzo tiles are hard-wearing (stone specialists are often called in to restore terrazzo flooring that is over 100 years old!), and easy to clean and maintain. As such, they are an obvious choice for public spaces with high footfall, like bars and restaurants. Terrazzo tiles add both class, and a touch of quirkiness to these kinds of spaces, and it is no surprise that some of the most beautiful and classiest locations have chosen them, such as Bar Luce in the Prada complex in Milan.
Indoor terrazzo tiles tend to be sanded to a smooth finish. They don’t absorb dirt, dust or stains, which makes them incredibly easy to clean. In spaces where food and drink are served (and occasionally spilled!), this makes them the perfect option as no matter what you throw at them, terrazzo tiles will take it and remain pristine.
The production process is important too, as unlike some other tiling, terrazzo tiles do not release harmful vapours. The traditional, organic process required to create the tiles is 100% non-toxic and avoids harmful substances, which keeps the finished product safe and healthy.
While tiles for use indoors are ground and sanded to a smooth finish, this is not the only option with terrazzo. Tiles designed for outdoor use are ground for a rougher finish, which makes them non-slip and great for places where they might get wet. Patios, terraces, stairs, paths, even swimming pools - terrazzo offers a touch of beauty and elegance while remaining incredibly functional and safe.
As terrazzo is sustainable, non-toxic and cost-effective it can also be used safely and confidently in much larger public spaces, such as hospitals, airports, stations or shopping malls.
