I’m ready to roll my sleeves up and work on a whole new house. If only moving wasn’t such a hassle. Today I’m planning out the floors for my new house (which exists only in my dreams right now). When it comes to floors, wood or tile are the main go-to’s. It’s always fun to push the envelope and experiment with something new…or in this case, old. I’m talking about Terrazo floors which have been around forever but aren’t usually the first thing that comes to people’s minds when they are considering flooring.
Terrazzo is a process that consists of mixing small pieces of marble of other aggregates in to concrete or epoxy. It became really popular in the 1960’s and 70’s. I can remember as a kid the Salt Lake City airport used to be all speckled Terrazo floors and I loved it. But then they remodeled. I have not idea what’s there now but obviously nothing that made an impression for me to remember.
Terrazzo was really popular in mid century design but it is really making a resurgence because of its low maintenance, durability and clean sleek look.
As for me, I love it!
