As an architect or interior designer, terrazzo floor tile is an easy all rounder. This aggregate tiling is able to handle both interior and exterior application, if the right type of terrazzo tile is chosen. Terrazzo tiling is weather and water proof, making it the perfect option for unique backsplash tiles, shower floor tiles, and kitchen countertops.
Today, we at Marble Systems want to acquaint you with our terrazzo tiling ranges, for both residential and commercial use. The natural stone tiles for sale within these collections perfectly embody why the terrazzo flooring trend is on the horizon.
Why Choose Terrazzo Tile?
So, it’s undeniably beautiful, but is terrazzo floor tile really the right choice for your interior design project? As well as being waterproof, terrazzo is the perfect flooring material thanks to its almost un-believable durability. This stone flooring does not suffer from stains, chips or cracking once the tiles are correctly sealed. The pavers last longer than most other natural stone tiling outside, so just imagine the longevity they hold when installed in the interior.
If you have difficult, high-traffic areas within your home or workplace, terrazzo floor tile is the sturdi-est tile for sale. The perfect tile for a homeowner or designer looking to tile an entryway or hallway. But even more so, for architects and contractors working on commercial renovations and projects. Af-ter all, terrazzo was a common sight in public buildings from 1930 onwards. Not to mention, old ter-razzo tiling is easy to refinish, to look as good as new. As affordable tiles go terrazzo really gives you bang for your buck.
How Does Terrazzo Benefit the Environment?
Terrazzo tiling outshines other natural stones in terms of longevity, and it’s one of the most sustaina-ble flooring options. Even its origins in the 16th century point to terrazzo tile being used to recycle offcuts of various natural stones. Nowadays, terrazzo tiling finds use in much the same way, reusing scarce materials for the modern focus on sustainable design.
Concerning production practices, this beautiful wall and floor tile is simple to make. Creating terrazzo tile releases very few harmful gases, protecting our planet from pollution usually synonymous with mass produced tiling. By choosing terrazzo tile you play a vital role in creating sustainable architec-ture, benefiting your interior, and the natural world.
With all this in mind, let’s dive in to the Marble Systems collections of stunning terrazzo floor tile…
Venetian Style Terrazzo Tile
We’ve seen how resplendent terrazzo tiling can be, with a pop of added color. But now let’s return to the simple style that made terrazzo flooring such a favorite in the past. The Venetian Style Terrazzo tile collection from Marble Systems takes a simpler approach to this designer tile trend.
The muted Orrizonte and Steel colors let the gorgeous natural stone chippings embedded in the tiling take centre stage. This understated approach to the intricate tile also makes them the perfect choice for sleek interiors, and commercial floor tiles. The Steel color takes command of a room, playing well with deep blues and full black tones. The Orrizonte tile color, on the other hand, is a bright and breezy foundation for the sweet speckling on top.
