What You Need to Know about White Terrazzo Flooring

Terrazzo flooring gained popularity and prominence in the mid-1900s, but has recently come to the fore once more. Today’s trend is dominated by brighter, bolder colors, wider tiles to minimize the look of grout lines, lower maintenance needs than the previous generation of the flooring, and more. One of the most interesting trends is toward white terrazzo tile. What should you know about this flooring option?

The Right Additives

All terrazzo flooring uses bits of natural stone to create the unique look. White terrazzo uses specific additives, including:

  • Quartz
  • White marble
  • Porcelain
  • Recycled glass

Fluidity and Continuity

White terrazzo flooring features paler Portland cement and white stone chips (usually marble). Combine that with the trend toward larger tiles and narrower grout lines, and you have a flooring option that offers massive fluidity and continuity.

Monochrome

If you’re into the whole modern design aesthetic, you’ll love the way that white terrazzo can be combined with white walls to create a completely pristine, monochrome space. Add a few pops of color here and there, and your design is complete.

Contrast

Another popular way to use white terrazzo is to create a dramatic contrast. For instance, white flooring with dark brown or gray upright supports, or with a textured wallpaper could truly set your space apart.

Minimalist Tie-Ins

Minimalism has gained a lot of steam recently. If your home has a minimalist design, white flooring will tie into that overall design motif quite well.

Color Options and Variations

With the right terrazzo flooring company, there is a wealth of color options and variations. White doesn’t have to mean pristine or plain. Instead, consider variations like our Imperial Ivory, Statuario, Calacatta, Carrara, or even our Portland White, for a bit of gray blended throughout.

Not Just Flooring

While white terrazzo flooring has become undeniably popular, don’t neglect the material’s use in other areas. It’s an ideal option for creating countertops and backsplashes, particularly if you want to add the look of natural stone without the cost or care considerations of that material.

At Trend Terrazzo, we love the resurgence in terrazzo’s popularity, particularly white terrazzo. We offer several unique styles to choose from that could be ideal for virtually any application, from flooring to countertops to headboards to reception desks, and everything in between. The only limit is your creativity and sense of style.
