If you’ve been scouring Pinterest looking for design inspiration for your kitchen or bathroom project, you will have undoubtedly come across Terrazzo tiles. Terrazzo tiles have soared in popularity over the past year and we expect the trend to continue throughout 2021 and beyond.
Terrazzo Tiles have featured in numerous design magazines and are fast becoming a must have in any home. They’re incredibly versatile and can be incorporated into traditional home decor as well as modern interior design.
What Are Terrazzo Tiles?
Terrazzo Tiles date back hundreds of years and were popular in the Mediterranean. They were first created in Italy as an innovative way to use up stone offcuts and were originally made from concrete speckled with pottery, marble, metal and glass.
Today, Terrazzo effect tiles are made from a number of materials, including porcelain and resin. Terrazzo effect tiles are a great way to add interest to your wall or floor and make an eye-catching feature in any room.
Why Should I Choose Terrazzo Effect Tiles?
Terrazzo Effect tiles are made from porcelain and are a more hardwearing than the traditional concrete Terrazzo. They are easy to keep clean and require little ongoing maintenance. Porcelain Terrazzo tiles are resistant to water making them the perfect choice for bathrooms and wet rooms. Porcelain is difficult to scratch or stain, which is great for families with young children. Terrazzo effect tiles are also cheaper than traditional tiles.
How Can I style Terrazzo Tiles?
There are many ways to style Terrazzo Tiles within the family home. Using Terazzo tiles is a great way to introduce colour into an otherwise neutral room, without dominating the space.
For a bold look you can tile a whole wall with a single Terrazzo colour. For a more subtle finish consider using them a little more sparingly and tiling midway up the wall.
We think Terrazzo tiles look great in small areas, such as a kitchen splashback or surrounding a bathtub. We also like the effect created when they’re paired with plain metro tiles in a complimentary colour.
