Terrazzo is something you either love or hate.  This popular material from the 1920's can still be found in many older homes and spaces in its original form (generally used during the Art Deco days).  Terrazzo has reared its head again with a modern twist as this practical composite material is being used again today as flooring, wall panels, furniture, bench tops, splash backs, and even in home decor and fashion accessories.  So if you are renovating your home / space and find original Terrazzo, refrain from replacing it with something else as Terrazzo is back!  Not convinced?  Well check out these ways Terrazzo is being used tastefully today and why many are opting to use this once ancient material again.

Tip: Since Terrazzo has a busy pattern to it, you want to limit the other patterns you team back with it especially if you want your Terrazzo to be the main feature.  Not only will this keep things easier on the eye, but will also accentuate your Terrazzo and really draw the attention to it.  And if you want to highlight the colours in your Terrazzo, then use the Terrazzo colours as accent pieces within your space or feature wall colours or if you want to have a bit of fun then choose opposite colours for a real contrast.
