The use of terrazzo can be traced back to ancient Egyptian mosaics. However, its more recent predecessors come from Italy. A popular construction material from the 1930s to the 1970s, terrazzo has recently made a comeback. These days, architects and homeowners use terrazzo to give building projects a modern look. Because they are dense, terrazzo floor tiles are advised for high traffic commercial areas, including entrances, foyers, and reception areas. Similarly, they are advised for high traffic areas in homes. Use them indoors for living and dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and laundries. Something to keep in mind, however, is that terrazzo flooring isn’t naturally slip-resistant. Terrazzo should be treated before being used in moisture-prone areas.
