I chose our new coworking building for two reasons .
The second reason was the terrazzo flooring
The building had this tacky , grimmy green carpet .
I asked the real estate agent "What is underneath this cringeworthy carpet ?"
He answered "I don't know .Let's see ."
We uncovered a corner revealing a beautiful beige terrazzo. It turns out this is the flooring of the entire building .
I adored it !
The construction crew did not agree with me .
They suggested banal floor tiling on top of the carpet - quicker and cheaper than restoring the terrazzo.And how time consuming finding the right solvent and removing the glue used for the hideous carpet.
I would not be swayed .They have reluctantly accepted my decision .
Terrazzo is the latest trend for interior design for 2020. Because it is so expensive the trend is expressed with tiling approximating a terrazzo design.Terrazzo is a composite material, handmade and unique .
The craftsman asks the customer what colors he would like and creates the flooring accordingly by embedding chips of marble,quartz, granite and glass with a cementitious binder.Terrazzo floors are the most expensive flooring you can have installed - more expensive than marble and granite. You are not only using a combination of two of the most expensive materials,but also using concrete to set.
