Cast terrazzo tiles are used as a flooring material and decorate the walls of your home. Venetian mosaic glass workers coined the term ‘terrazzo’ in the 15th century. This terrazzo material consists of stone flakes, such as marble, quartz, granite, glass, and a binder or polymer.
Terrazzo is a type of floor that has a pattern. In its use, terrazzo is often an alternative flooring in homes, schools, offices, and other buildings. It is because terrazzo can produce the desired style of the character of each building. Terrazzo tiles are also made from Bali Natural Stone by Stone Depot with many kinds of natural stone types such as marble and granite.
Based on its texture, terrazzo flooring consists of two types, rough and smooth terrazzo. In the manufacturing process, the difference in the surface texture of the terrazzo comes from the composite material that is molded to become a firm floor. Coarse terrazzo is made of rough marble shards, and fine terrazzo flooring uses more delicate terrazzo shards. These two types of terrazzo also have different treatments. Here are some examples of terrazzo flooring by Stone Depot:
