Terrazzo tiles are the perfect choice to transform your garden or terrace into a beautiful relaxing place with a luxury feel. However, they not only look fantastic but are also extraordinarily hard-wearing and of unparalleled quality. Additionally, they can withstand a wide range of ambient temperatures and climatic conditions without problems and are waterproof and stain-resistant.
Terrazzo tiles are made by embedding marble, granite, and glass or quartz chips into a cement binder. These are all rigid materials and create a tile surface with unsurpassed durability. They will not chip or crack, and Terrazzo tiles will keep their good looks for many years, even in high-traffic areas with constant daily use. What’s more, if eventually, they begin to look a little worn, you can regrind and polish the surface to restore them to as-new condition.
Terrazzo tiles are sealed so that no water can get into them. That means that in freezing conditions, they will not crack, unlike some other types of tiles. Also, the nature of the materials means that these tiles can withstand any weather, from the scorching sun to lashing rain or freezing snow. Perfect for our ever-changing British climate!
The highly polished and sealed surface of terrazzo tiles makes them water-resistant and stain-repellent. That means they are ideal for outdoor use where vegetation falling onto the surface could cause discolouration or staining in other types of tiles. Also, keeping the barbeque area clean and hygienic won’t matter if there are spills and splashes.
Choice of colours
Terrazzo tiles are available in a vast range of muted colours which contrast beautifully with the different colours of the encased chips to form an excellent speckled effect. In some tiles, the contrast is very pronounced, while others are more homogenous and muted. You can choose a colour to match or contrast your garden furniture and outdoor decorations.
Terrazzo tiles in your garden, terrace, or patio will give your outdoor space a luxurious look and feel. They create an easy-to-keep-clean and practical area for barbequing, dining, and relaxing and will create a unique and very special outside space for you and your family to enjoy.
Increase the value of your place
Finally, laying terrazzo tiles on your terrace or garden will add monetary value to your house. A luxurious outdoor space is guaranteed to impress a potential buyer and increase the value of your property.
