Trend Watch: Get trendy with Terrazzo
5 August 2022

Here at Stone Tile Company, we are always on the lookout for new trends and styles to add to our portfolio. We are keen on anything we think will help advance the aesthetics of rooms in our customers’ homes with on-trend and timeless tiles.

An increasingly popular trend this year is Terrazzo effect tiles. And little wonder, as this is a truly eye-catching tile if ever there was one.

Our Terrazzo effect porcelain tiles are designed to replicate the real thing. Containing small shards of colour, the effect is dazzling, chic and truly something special.

In our latest blog, we take a look at why Terrazzo is proving so popular at present, and the Terrazzo effect tiles we have available to help transform your home.

What goes into Terrazzo Effect tiles?

Genuine Terrazzo has been around for centuries, made up of a mixture of marble, stone and glass shard. As you can imagine, this comes at a costly price and requires the associated maintenance. The Terrazzo effect tiles we stock here at Stone Tile Company are manufactured in one of Spain’s premium factories.

With our Terrazzo effect range being made from durable porcelain, a non-porous material, it does not require sealing and renders them long-lasting and easy to clean and maintain. What’s better than getting the same effect at a fraction of the cost of the real thing?!

The tiles themselves are made using a mix of small and medium-sized coloured shards in a scattered design. They have a luxurious satin surface with added slip resistance. This truly replicates the kind of Terrazzo surfaces we associate with warm Mediterranean countries with a rich architectural heritage.

Where do Terrazzo effect tiles work best?

We at Stone Tile Company particularly like the use of Terrazzo tiles in bathroom spaces, as here the tiles give a strong feel of hotel bathroom chic.

Terrazzo tiles also work beautifully for minimalist and maximalist alike.

Minimalist Idea:

Adding a pop of colour to an existing room that is normally made up of one or two colours all around. Match the background colour of the tile to your existing colour scheme.

Maximalist Idea:

Incorporate multiple colours to the area that match that of the coloured shards within the tile.

Terrazzo tiles can be used on both walls and floors, and are particularly and popularly completely decked out in bathrooms.

Additionally, the Terrazzo tiles we stock at Stone Tile Company are all suitable for use with underfloor heating.

Understanding your Terrazzo tile choice

All the Terrazzo tiles we stock are made with premium porcelain, giving them true flexibility and durability.

As our range of porcelain Terrazzo tiles come with a satin finish, lower levels of maintenance are required. There is also no requirement to seal any of our Terrazzo tiles, while they also come with a PEI 4 rating. This means they are all suitable for walls and floors across residential and medium commercial use.

If you do purchase some of our excellent Terrazzo tiles, note that the tile has variations of surface design, with each box we deliver containing a random selection.

Our recommendation is to order a full-size sample, as this will give you the chance to see the design of these tiles up close and in their entirety. You can contact us to purchase a full tile sample.

We also recommend adding to your order to cover any cuts and breakages.
