Advances in tile technology have allowed manufacturers to explore exciting new combinations of terrazzo finishes, shapes and colours. At Cersaie, blue and green aggregate featured heavily, which tie in beautifully with the trend for all things natural that we are anticipating more of in 2019. We also saw powdery pinks and blues in terrazzo tiles that create a soft, feminine look. In 2019, you’ll see terrazzo tiles used on bathroom walls and floors as well as kitchen splashbacks and island benchtops. It will migrate outside too – expect to see it in outdoor showers and in alfresco entertaining areas where the light will showcase its natural beauty wonderfully.
Why is there such a buzz around terrazzo tiles rightnow? “We’ve been watching the terrazzo movement gain momentum on the world stage for a couple of years now, and in the past 10 months it has exploded in popularity here in Australia,” says Christie Wood, strategic designer at Beaumont Tiles. It’s easy to see the appeal, she says. “Terrazzo is a playful expansion of the concrete industrial style that has been popular for some time now. It embraces colour and offers a truly bespoke finish that can be adapted to suit different home styles.”“Terrazzo is also a great way to add texture and interest to a space,” says Andrew Zunica, director at Zunica Interior Architecture & Design. “Terrazzo tiles are beautiful and they are a cost-effective alternative to using natural stone.”
