Terrazzo tiles are the future of tilemaking. These innovative tiles are a composite of chips of marble, granite, glass, quartz, and other materials bound together in epoxy. The result is a tile that is hardwearing, long-lasting, and of course, beautiful.
Modern terrazzo tiles were first invented in 18th-c Venice by marble workers, who used the fragments left over from their work to build their own terraces at home. Their invention proved to be practical, affordable, and creative.
Today, terrazzo has grown in popularity. They're commonly found on the floors of large commercial properties due to their durability. Nevertheless, terrazzo tiles look just as incredible in the home. Moreover, they're easy to clean, making them a practical choice for households with young children or messy pets. If you want a no-hassle tile, then terrazzo is for you.
Where Can I Install Terrazzo Tiles?
Terrazzo is effortless, which means that it works well in nearly all interior installations.
Hard-wearing and durable, they're unlikely to scratch or chip. Its longevity makes it a smart long-term investment. If that wasn't enough, terrazzo is also moisture-resistant, stain-proof, and easy to clean.
Terrazzo tiles are one of the best choices for commercial business flooring. They can bear heavy loads and hold up against a steady stream of people walking across them. Therefore, they're commonly found on lobby floors, in hospitals, and in schools.
For all the reasons stated above, they are also well-suited for residential flooring installations.
Our beautiful line of terrazzo tiles proves that terrazzo can be just as stylish as it is practical.

Our multiple color options invite creativity, especially when it comes to kitchen backsplashes. Try alternating colored tiles to create a unique and vibrant design for your kitchen.
Bathroom/Shower Walls & Floors
Terrazzo tiles are waterproof, so they're great for bathroom and shower installations. We suggest installing matte terrazzo flooring in wet areas for a non-slip surface.
