Design Ideas for Classic Terrazzo
Over the lifetime of a building, the total cost of maintaining or replacing flooring can multiply as much as 35 times its initial cost. Alternatives like carpet, ceramic tile, vinyl or wood might be less expensive to install, but a classic terrazzo matrix and in a practical design can be surprisingly competitive with the added benefit of sustainability and durability. Terrazzo resists microbes and moisture accumulation, essential for a mold-free, healthy environment. And, because it’s seamless, maintenance is as easy as periodic sweeping, damp mopping and cleaning. Wear resistance and resistance to outside climate are all part of a building’s life, day in and day out—terrazzo floors are the enduring choice.
