This is why Terrazzo, the Italian word for “terrace” is also used to describe the materials and the method used to build floors, shower partitions, kitchen and office countertops, and many other structures.  It is a composite of various materials such as quartz, marble, glass etc., which are mixed together and poured in situ or precast with either concrete or a chemical based resin.

The beauty of incorporating Terrazzo into your architecture is it gives your overall structure a more cohesive, streamlined finish.  Depending on the kind of technique used, the use of Terrazzo can tie together a room’s appearance.  It can also pick up other various design elements and make them stand out.  Additionally, you can choose between a more practical, no-frills design and a more embellished, almost mosaic-like rendering.
