Terrazzo Bathrooms

Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast, which is used for floor and wall treatments. It consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, or other suitable material, poured with a cementitious binder (for chemical binding), polymeric (for physical binding), or a combination of both.

After it is cured it is ground and polished smooth or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface.

Terrazzo as we know it today originates from Italy and specifically the 18th century pavimento alla Veneziana (Venetian pavement) where workers placed marble fragments next to each other in a mortar base.

So basically is all about pieces of stone that are bonded to a cement bed. It is considered a sustainable flooring material as when first introduced, it was a way of using stone offcuts so nothing would go to waste.

Today's post is all about using terrazzo in the bathroom. Here are some incredible spaces that I found products you could use to replicate the look.
