Aesthetics, cost, maintenance and durability are just some of the wise considerations when you opt for a countertop. Going green with terrazzo countertops, the early concept of terrazzo floors is built on the idea of being green; this applies to terrazzo countertops as well when Italian marble craftsmen came up with terrazzo, it was a way to reuse leftover materials. The excess marble chips from their projects was carted from the terraces and combined with concrete and coated with goat’s milk to give it shine. The idea behind terrazzo countertops is the same. Besides using concrete, bits of marble and glass are mixed to make terrazzo countertops. Heat resistant countertops that do not conduct or maintain heat is very important. Marble has a tendency to maintain heat for a period of time. Terrazzo countertops do not conduct heat. Terrazzo countertops will not burn and darken if you set a hot object directly on the surface without a heat pad. Scratch resistant terrazzo countertops withstand scrapes. Sliding pots and pans over the surface or dropping utensils on it will not cause scratches to appear. When scratches do appear you can buff most of them out with a cloth. Stain resistant terrazzo countertops stain just like all other materials but they stand up longer than the others. One has to seal the countertops correctly in order for them to maintain their resistance to staining. Continue reading “Stunning and Well-designed Terrazzo Countertops”
