Terrazzo Twist is the next strand – and probably the dominant design direction – in the 2018 tile trend report from Kristin Coleman and the team at Novita PR in the USA.  As with the other nine of the Top Ten, this trend was identified following close observation of the new collections from the top Italian tile manufacturers at Cersaie 2017.

Already a popular trend in interior design and fashion, terrazzo started popping up in the tile industry last year and has grown to become a potential new mainstay, on par with marble, wood and concrete designs.

Dozens of designs are now available ranging from cement to epoxy terrazzo, traditional to modern colours and gloss to matt finishes.  As opposed to traditional terrazzo, which can become very slippery or fade when used outdoors, porcelain offers a durable, versatile and cost-effective alternative.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Having been born and raisied in a terrazzo floored house with electric underfloor heating – built in rural Berkshire in 1960 so my parents must have been so far ahead of the curve – I am really relishing the terrazzo revival. Joe
