Introduce The Terrazzo Tile Trend Into Your Commercial Project - Sept 19

Terrazzo has been making a major comeback over the last year, and has become a popular choice for designers and specifiers in a wide variety of residential, commercial and hospitality projects.

Originating in Italy over 500 years ago, the composite material of marble chippings set into cement was created as a way to reuse scrapped rock, making it a sustainable option for surface design. Once the fragments are set, the surface is then polished to create a super-smooth finish.

The trend has now made its way from grand Italian homes to large communal spaces across the world, and has found its way into modern homes and luxury commercial settings.

Featuring dazzling displays of speckled colours, terrazzo is durable, decorative, hardwearing and long lasting. However, the real key to its popularity, aside from its understated and relaxed beauty, is its extraordinary versatility - it complements a variety of interior styles, from minimalist to maximalist.

Tiles are a particularly effective way to bring terrazzo into your commercial space – durable and practical, terrazzo tiles are resistant to water and stain damage when sealed properly, and can also be used indoors and outdoors.


A porcelain design that brings a touch of modernity to both walls and floors is our Stracciatella range, this reinterpretation of the classic terrazzo is ideal for all types of spaces and style. Use Stracciatella with plain stone effects to emphasize contrast, the variety of colour in each tile makes this series especially versatile. The strength of Stracciatella is the way it can effortlessly create an impression and is a great choice if you are looking for an alternative terrazzo effect tile for your project.


New for 2019, we have introduced Venice Villa into our growing portfolio of terrazzo effect tiles. This collection is an exquisite contemporary twist on the traditional terrazzo trend, combining the appearance of crushed marble fragments with the excellent properties of full body porcelain stoneware.

Available in eight colourways from monochrome Silver, Grey, Zinc and White to the more colourful options of Earth, Beige, Graphite and Ivory, the Venice Villa tiles offer an intriguing combination of colours that capture and reflect light, enhancing commercial spaces of all types.

Our Terrazzo Effect collection works as a perfect substitute or complement to traditional terrazzo; these porcelain tiles replicate the bespoke blend of stone chips in resin and are perfect if you are looking to create a bold statement wall or floor.
