Terrazzo floors are some of the oldest, most beautiful flooring options available today. In fact, terrazzo floors date back to ancient Egypt, where they were used to create stunning mosaics. Today’s terrazzo floors have more in common with Italian terrazzo, which has been in use since the 18th century when marble chips were bonded to a concrete base. It came into fashion in the United States during the art deco era.
Terrazzo is a beautiful and durable flooring option that can be used to create almost an endless variety of looks. If you’ve got terrazzo floors in your home or business, read on to learn why we think you should count yourself lucky.
1. It’s durable and easy to maintain.
Terrazzo floor maintenance is some of the easiest floor maintenance you could have. It’s an incredibly porous surface, which means it’s resistant to the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. It’s able to withstand strong impacts and heavy weights and is completely resistant to moisture. The best part? A terrazzo floor can be easily cleaned by simply using warm water, a neutral cleaner, and a mop.
2. Each floor has its own unique beauty.
Terrazzo has a charm that’s missing from most modern flooring options. It’s universally loved because each terrazzo floor is unique. There are many kinds of terrazzo, from polymer-based terrazzo to color-pigmented, marble-based terrazzo. Quartz, granite, and glass are also frequently used. Each terrazzo floor has its own pattern and imperfections, which makes it one of the most appealing flooring options available.
