With all this mid-century craze going on this one could not be left out. Terrazzo flooring. I remember it while growing up. Everyone’s house in my home town had terrazzo flooring. Balconies, stairs, hallways, bathrooms… that weird looking thing was almost everywhere.
At some point people got tired of it, like we tend to do with all things, and started either removing it or covering it up with other types of flooring. Most of them, when it came to balconies and stairways kept it there, because it was already too heavy. Adding another layer of flooring might cause damage and removing the terrazzo is not an easy job to do. But it’s gone from the bathrooms.
