While there are many home trends that come and go, the white marble home trend was so popular, we were almost convinced it would never fade. But as things start to level out for the popular white marble, it seems a new stone pattern is up-and-coming. Terrazzo—a mosaic-looking material made of marble, quartz, granite and glass—is starting to flood the Internet and take over stores with rapid speed. Does this mean that white marble has finally seen the end?
What Kind of Terrazzo Is Popular?
What’s particularly interesting about this rising terrazzo trend is the style that is trending specifically. Terrazzo is actually a common stone material used in DIY, but also in sidewalks or floors. The most famous terrazzo is on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The pink stars are placed on a terrazzo sidewalk, which is mainly dark grey with lighter flecks. While the Hollywood Walk of Fame is using the material, that specific type doesn’t seem to be in vogue. The lighter, creamier stone is really what’s hitting big with style-savvy folks.
How Can I Add Terrazzo to My Kitchen?
You can go big with terrazzo and retile your floor or backsplash. But you can start slow with small items like a trivet from World Market. Or even refresh your dinnerware with these terrazzo-style plates from Corelle. Walmart has a terrazzo-pattern contact paper that means you can turn any surface into this new trending pattern!
Even Pinterest is hopping on board. A quick “terrazzo” search shows striking beautiful kitchens and bathrooms with terrazzo surfaces, all with that cream-colored stone. Most of the homes have gold accents instead of silver and matched with light pink walls, cabinets, and plant holders.
Sorry marble, but it really does seem that terrazzo is here to stay. Looks like it’s officially time to take a hike, along with these other 20 DIY trends on their way out.
