    When we lived in Italy, terrazzo floors were everywhere, and we didn’t think anything of it.

    “Spendy,” I guess is what you need to be to complete a mid-century renovation.

  2. Angela says:

    I like terrazzo floors especially for hotter climates. Also I like the pictures of it in a “real” kitchen.

  3. Cyd says:

    We installed Fritztile in our kitchen five years ago or so. Laid without a grout line so it looks like a solid surface. Looking at the Terrazio colors above, ours is something close to Italian Blend. We have a mid century modern and I really wanted poured terrazo and there is a company here (Houston TX) that has been in business many years that installs and refinishes. Their price was something like $6,000 for our small 10×15 kitchen. Fritztile was a very good alternative.

    Yes, we love Fritztile! I can’t remember if we’ve featured it on the blog before, but it’s come up a few times.

    I need to do a story if I haven’t already! Thanks!

  5. Felicia Alexander says:

    Thank you for this information, Cyd. I’m looking into terrazzo as a possibility for the foyer of a 1962 midcentury modest ranch we’re in the process of buying. The current foyer flooring is vinyl terrazzo-look tile in a pattern that doesn’t complement the hardwood flooring in the living room or the custom hand-carved hardwood front door. The real thing in a more complementary pattern is an appealing idea.

  6. Stephen Drucker says:

    I can recommend this company highly. Did my entire 1968 house with four-foot-square Terrazzio tiles. The result looks poured. Yes, it’s expensive, but you get a true terrazzo floor at a fraction of the cost of a poured one. The company was super-professional and a pleasure from start to finish.

  7. Jessica Payne says:

    Hey everyone! I recently ordered samples from this company and they are gorgeous!! Here is the pricing if anyone is interested:

    2’ x 2’ x 3/8” @ $16.85/sf = $67.40 per tile

    2’ x 4’ x 3/8” @ $16.85/sf = $134.80 per tile

    4’ x 4’ x 3/8” @ $15.75/sf = $252.00 per tile

    4’ x 8’ x 3/8” @ $17.95sf = $574.40 per panel
