Terrazzo look porcelain tiles provide a stunning combination of colour, shape and pattern that will add a distinct character in the home. Terrazzo look tiles have remained a popular choice throughout these last few years with this timeless material being especially popular for use as a kitchen or bathroom tile solution. Our tile store in Richmond has expanded our collection to include even more exciting solutions with a vast range of stylish colours available to choose from for your next project!
What are Terrazzo Look Porcelain Tiles?
Terrazzo look tiles are made using a durable porcelain material and are specifically designed to emulate the look and feel of traditional terrazzo finishes. Authentic terrazzo tiles however, are made using a concrete tile that has been embedded with assorted chips of marble, granite and sometimes coloured glass. These chips can vary in colour and size and are randomly placed within the concrete tile when it is still in its wet cement form to create stylish patterns.
One of the latest additions to our Richmond tiles showroom, the Taras Terrazzo Look Tiles offer a maintenance free floor tile option that can be used throughout your home’s interior spaces to create a sense of continuity in your design scheme.
As concrete and natural stone are both porous materials, traditional terrazzo tiles do require ongoing sealing and maintenance to ensure they are in their best shape. These tiles can be professionally rejuvenated over time if need be in order to bring them back to their original form however, for those looking for a tile option that will not require the same level of care and maintenance, terrazzo look porcelain tiles are the next best solution!
In a true celebration of bold colours and striking, random patterns, our new Gelati Terrazzo Look Tiles are available in a classic 300 x 300mm size in a range of playful colour options.
Do Porcelain Tiles Need to be Sealed?

These tiles can be used in all sorts of applications throughout the home being perfectly suited as a bathroom tile, kitchen tile and even as a main flooring solution throughout the home’s interiors, providing a hard wearing option that is full of character and charm.
