Terrazzo effect tiles replicate the appearance of terrazzo flooring using ceramic or porcelain materials. Instead of using actual chips of stone, the terrazzo effect is achieved through printing techniques or the inclusion of colored chips or fragments within the tile. The tiles are manufactured with a base color and speckled patterns that resemble the look of terrazzo.
Terrazzo effect tiles are relatively easy to maintain. They do not require sealing like natural terrazzo, and regular sweeping, mopping, and occasional spot cleaning are sufficient to keep them looking prestine.
