Colourful Counter Tops


Terrazzo originated in 16th Century Italy and is a composite material of marble chippings set into cement. This makes it perfect for kitchens; take a look at this beautiful integral sink for example. By using Terrazzo rather than the traditional marble or quartz they have given this kitchen a bright, unique look. If you don’t feel bold enough to include it in your worktops, try in an accent feature or a more subdued version for your flooring.


Bathroom Update

Perhaps Terrazzo countertops are a little too busy for your kitchen, if so take a look at how these bathrooms use the material to add a fun aspect to an otherwise ordinary space. Think, Terrazzo tiled showers, basins, walls or floors. Look at your space and imagine what could be updated with this chic pattern.
