Terrazzo is a material used to decorate floors and walls; it is made with marble, brass or coloured glass elements placed into a liquid pigmented cement base. Upon completion of the hardening stage, polishing will reveal the beauty of the decorative chips. Terrazzo and Granito tiles follow the same manufacturing process, however, Terrazzo tiles display textures with larger chips or pieces while Granito tiles are more uniform, simply reinforced with fine-grain glass or marble aggregates.
Terrazzo has been known since the middle ages, manufactured at the time with lime. The arrival of Portland cement and the industrial revolution helped increase its use considerably, reaching its height between the 40s and 60s.
Brought back to the spotlight recently as a warm and versatile decorative element, Terrazzo can be easily customised and adapted to any decorative style.
