What is Terrazzo?

Terrazzo is certainly eye-catching and almost like art pieces in itself, adding flair and character to any room they inhabit.

Terrazzo has a homogenous colour and effect, which makes it more versatile and easier to combine with fixtures and furnishings in the bathroom.

We think of terrazzo as marble’s cooler, more mature cousin. It’s an extremely durable material that’s honestly been around for centuries, and while its popularity ebbs and flows, one thing’s for sure, it always comes back in style time and time again.

What’s Terrazzo Made of?

Terrazzo is a composite surface composed of chips of marble, glass and stone set in a resin or cement base. It can be bought in slabs, tiles or poured directly into place. At Buildmat we have a range of gorgeous terrazzo basins, like this stunning Soma Terrazzo Basin.

Is terrazzo suitable for bathrooms?

Absolutely! Terrazzo looks gorgeous in bathrooms, as seen from these photos! And, terrazzo tiles aren’t just made for floors, they look amazing as basins, countertops, on walls and backsplash.

Which is cheaper: tiles or terrazzo?

Ceramic tile is typically more affordable than terrazzo flooring. However, when you take into account the strength and durability of terrazzo, it actually offers a better return on investment over time.

Which is better: tiles or terrazzo?

The quick answer is no single material is better than the other, it really comes down to personal style and preference. However, when talking about durability, nothing goes the distance quite like terrazzo. 

What wall tiles go with terrazzo flooring?

Pretty much anything goes with terrazzo! It definitely works well with rich, natural stone, especially a stone with a bold grain, like marble. Warm-coloured terrazzo works best with accents of red, orange, and yellow, while a cool-toned terrazzo works well with white, grey, blue and green.

Will terrazzo go out of style?

Terrazzo is not only an incredibly durable material, it’s also been around for centuries! And, while its mainstream popularity can ebb and flow, it never really goes out of style!

How can I get the terrazzo look while I’m renting?

Just because you’re in a rental property doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the terrazzo look! Terrazzo tile stickers are a thing (try Etsy for a range of different ones) that you can stick on your floors and walls. Or, you can try to reason with your landlord that terrazzo is a great investment for the property and they should consider a terrazzo reno… you never know, they might just say yes!

Choosing the Right Bathroom Basin

There are countless types and styles of bathroom basins to suit your needs and style. We’ve rounded up the top five below!

Wall Mount/Wall Hung Basins

These basins are mounted directly onto the bathroom wall and often sit alone on the wall with the option to put storage underneath. Wall mount or wall hung basins are ideal for bathrooms that have less space.

Above Counter/Counter Basins

As the name suggests, above counter basins sit on top of the bench or vanity. They come in countless designs and are an excellent option for an en suite.

Under Counter Basins

For a more traditional look, choose an under counter basin. Under counter basins are mounted under the vanity top. We recommend these for family bathrooms or the kids’ bathrooms.

Semi Inset Basins

For guest bathrooms or smaller-spaced bathrooms, semi inset basins are the ideal choice. These sit partially within and on top of the vanity.

Semi Recessed Basins

Semi recessed basins essentially hang over the edge of the vanity or bench. They are extremely modern and stylish and a good choice for people wanting to save space on the vanity top.
