Terrazzo is not new to the design scene, as it used to be an incredibly popular flooring selection and also has a historic quality to it; but terrazzo is now being integrated into more modern design — lucky for us! Terrazzo is simply described as chips of glass, mirror, marble, etc. that are suspended in a cement or epoxy base. The finish of the overall look is smooth and great for high-traffic areas — it is amazingly delicate-looking but durable. Terrazzo provides beautiful visual texture to a space and speaks an ornate simplicity. Think outside of the box with this material with backsplashes, showers, and, of course, countertops!
