Terrazzo is a material that consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, or other suitable material, poured with a polymeric binder. Additional chips may be sprinkled atop the mix before it sets. After it is cured it is ground and polished smooth or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface. This material was used mostly for outdoor décor or for flooring but now it’s being rocked much more widely. One of the hottest current design and décor trends is using terrazzo for various surfaces inside your home or even for furniture as it’s durable and eye-catchy. Want some examples? Get ready to swoon over!
