Terrazzo Floor Tiles

Terrazzo is created by embedding stone chips of marble, quartz or granite into concrete for a natural but unique pattern. Traditional terrazzo needs to be made on the spot or comes in thick concrete tiles, increasing the cost to feature the amazing pattern at home.

Advancement in technology meant the terrazzo pattern can be applied over traditional tiles and maintain an on-par aesthetic as traditional terrazzo. The use of terrazzo look tiles made terrazzo more affordable to be used in homes and much simpler to install. Read more

Terrazzo floor tiles made with new technology also meant they kept the waterproofing benefit of typical tiles. The gap between concrete and embedded stone chips in traditional terrazzo create micro seams for water to sip within the floor. As temperature increases, water in the seams expands to crack the floor over a long period of time. The use of tiles to recreate terrazzo removes the seams in the flooring and mitigates the risk of cracks. With this new technology, terrazzo tiles can now be used in humid spaces, such as the shower or kitchen.

The rise of Scandinavian interior design meant terrazzo floor tiles rose to the trend. Unlike traditional terrazzo which features larger stone chips, modern terrazzo is designed to be less complicated and more suitable to minimalist interiors, not to mention the change in stone chip colour.

At Tilemall, white colour-based terrazzo floor tiles are some of our most popular items, especially those with smaller stone chips and matt finished. Tiles with mixed coloured stone chips and light grey stone chips often work with most interiors. Younger families might choose dark colour-based terrazzo tiles to have a unique design flip for their first home.

Terrazzo floor tiles can be maintained just like typical tiles. Most surface cleaners will work with terrazzo floor tiles without any issues. Stains and splashes on terrazzo floor tiles can be cleaned in quick swipes. Read less

What Are Terrazzo Floor Tiles?

The history and art of terrazzo is fascinating, dating back hundreds of years. Terrazzo was originally created in Venice during the 15th century. It was here that original designers merged marble rocks in clay before smoothing it down to provide a flat surface. By the 1700s, Terrazzo flooring had become a popular choice for homes around the world. 

Terrazzo floor tiles in Australia are an alternative to poured terrazzo flooring. Terrazzo is created by embedding chips of granite, quartz, or stone into concrete to create a completely natural and unique pattern. Terrazzo tiles are thick and require expert installation. However, you can also explore terrazzo look tiles. These are more budget-friendly and easier to install in any room of your property.

Where Can You Use Terrazzo Floor Tiles?

Poured terrazzo floors can only be used on the ground floor of a property due to the weight. Using a surface like this on a higher floor would risk damaging the structure of a property. This is not the case with terrazzo floor tiles. Due to the lower weight and design, these tiles can be used anywhere in the home. 

Popular choices include:

  • Living rooms
  • Dining rooms
  • Kitchens 
  • Bathrooms

 

It’s also possible to choose terrazzo floors for hallways or stairs and make a grand first impression of your property. Do be aware that if you are using terrazzo floor tiles in wet rooms such as the kitchen or bathrooms then it makes sense to explore slip-resistant options. This will ensure that your floor is stylish, practical, and safe for your whole family. 

The subtle texture of terrazzo tiles ensures that they will provide a timeless flooring option for any room in your home. 

 

How To Clean Terrazzo Floor Tiles

Terrazzo is commonly known as one of the most durable floor surfaces available for properties in Australia. However, it is highly porous. The flooring may absorb substances including liquids and stains. This can leave stains on the surface that are difficult to remove. Terrazzo tiles must be cleaned carefully and you should aim to remove any spills as quickly as possible. 

The floors can be cleaned using warm water as well as a mild detergent. You should avoid using strong chemicals or acid cleaning products as these can damage the floor. 

Once the tiles have been mopped, you should dry the floor with a sh-mop or a cotton towel. This will remove any excess moisture and prevent water spots. Water spots develop easily on this type of flooring so it is important to keep your floor dry. This is not as much of an issue with terrazzo look tiles. They provide the same aesthetic without a high level of required maintenance.
