Vintage Terrazzo Making a Comeback for 2016

Few people in the United States can say with certainty that they have never walked on terrazzo floors. In fact, if you have ever visited a doctor or hospital, set foot in a school or university or had business to take care of within a government building, it is highly likely that you've walked on terrazzo at some points in your life -- and likely multiple times.

Flooring Materials Cycle Through

Just as kit tends to happen in the fashion industry, so, too, do the trends in home remodeling materials seem to cycle through as new trends every few years or decades. In existence since workers in Venice were interested in finding a use for their marble scraps during the 15th century, terrazzo flooring provided a beautiful and durable surface that was -- at first -- limited to those households of great wealth. Eventually, thousands of industrial floors enjoyed the benefits of utilizing a terrazzo floor, including its durability. 

Today's Terrazzo Combines Beauty With Convenience

Exciting innovations have improved the delivery of terrazzo even as it started to fall out of favor somewhat. As beautiful and long-lasting as it is, terrazzo requires extensive maintenance in order to continue to look its best. In addition to having to be resealed every few years to protect the viability of the resin, traditional terrazzo also must be cleaned with special cleaning materials and stripped often to remove buildup. Terrazzo tiles are the perfect blend of beautiful quartz, shimmering stones, colorful elements, mirrored glass, post-consumer porcelain and other attractive -- and often recycled -- materials within a user-friendly resin base that requires only minimal maintenance.  

Ideal for Homes, Too! 

Previously, the resin for terrazzo floors was cured on-site. This process effectively limited its applications to the commercial side. Terrazzo tiles are only 1/4 inch thick. This makes them extremely easy to handle so they can be used in numerous home settings as well, such as kitchen counters, bathrooms and much more.
