Precast terrazzo. Precast terrazzo is a made-to-measure product. Almost anything can be formed with terrazzo: countertops, wall panels, sinks, furniture. An array of colors and finishes is available.
As with all surfaces, caring for your terrazzo is important. It does not need shielding from wear, but it needs shielding from spill absorption and stains. Quality terrazzo will be sealed, but this sealant is not a long-lasting barrier against stains. All spills should be wiped up right away. It's best not to cut on it, as it will scratch. Also, placing hot products directly on the top may cause cracking.
Terrazzo costs more than granite or marble. Professional installation is recommended, so that adds to the cost, too. On the plus side, it's durable and long lasting.
In this kitchen the green in the terrazzo pops as well as harmonizes with the tile backsplash. And it looks lovely against the neutral cabinetry.
