Terrazzo is a traditional floor covering that is handcrafted using the highest grades of sand, aggregates, and pigments set in a concrete or polymer base to deliver a truly unique look. Traditional terrazzo flooring is adored worldwide and is known for its unique aesthetic. However, terrazzo is expensive and requires specialised installation. As an alternative, Classic Ceramics stocks an impressive range of terrazzo look tiles, bringing an air of luxurious Italian style to your home or business at a lower cost and with less maintenance.
Terrazzo vs Terrazzo Look Tiles
Terrazzo is generally attributed to Venetian construction workers, who made flooring for their homes by mixing scraps of marble offcuts from their exclusive contracts with clay. The workers then ground down the marble to walk on it. With the advancement of technology, porcelain terrazzo look tiles aptly mimic the real thing at a lower price point and are easier to install. Terrazzo look tiles are also available in a wide range of colours and styles, ensuring a tile that matches your aesthetic.
Much like the other “look” tiles in the Classic Ceramic range (cement look, stone look, marble look, timber look, etc.,) terrazzo look tiles are created from glazed porcelain or ceramic, using advanced printing technology to replicate terrazzo authentically.
Terrazzo Look Tiles – Benefits
– Making, installing, and sealing natural terrazzo is expensive and time-consuming, while you can lay terrazzo look tiles like any other tile type.
Durable and versatile
– Terrazzo look tiles are resistant to stains, scratches, and indentations, making them an ideal choice for both residential and commercial locations. Use them in high traffic areas or as a statement wall installation.
– Traditional terrazzo is highly porous, which means it requires special care to protect it from stains and water. Traditionally, small chips or pieces of marble, coloured glass, granite, or quartz are embedded within the concrete to form its unique look. Advances in manufacturing technology have allowed the creation of porcelain products that authentically replicate the aesthetics of natural products, providing a versatile, water-resistant alternative to traditional terrazzo surfaces.
