Terrazzo Flooring as Countertops: Discovering a New Place for an Old FavoriteDecember 18, 2018 // Posted in:
Savvy homeowners thrive on keeping up with the trends. When it comes to home renovations, there’s an old favorite making a big comeback in places you wouldn’t expect. Terrazzo is becoming a real gamechanger in kitchen renovations. This beautifully unique flooring is working its way up onto kitchen countertops and is projected to be one of the hottest new countertop trends for 2019.
What is terrazzo?
Terrazzo is a composite material made from chips of marble, granite, quartz and glass which are set in cement and then polished to create an elegantly smooth finish. It originated over 500 years ago in Italy as a way to use leftover marble chippings. Who knew they were recycling back then?
Today, terrazzo has been remastered as a dazzling surface which boasts a spectrum of speckled colors that add character and interest, covering everything from flooring to lamps – and now, countertops!
Why is terrazzo popular again?
Granite, quartz and marble may still be high up on the radar when it comes to countertops, but a number of today’s consumers are also hungry for something new. Enter terrazzo. Its versatility and virtually infinite color and material options make terrazzo a remastered classic that lends sophistication to today’s most modern homes. Plus, it’s one of the industry’s most environmentally green products.
