I would like to cover a large amount of terrazzo floor that is really dated. I know this is an excellent type floor, and very durable, but it is pretty ugly. What are the options, starting with the easiest and cheapest. The area covers the entryway, large den, breakfast and kitchen, utility and bathrooms. There's a lot of it! Would the same methods of laying flooring over concrete apply here? Thanks for any ideas.

The cheapest way is to keep the terazzo down and install over the top of it. Laminate might just do the trick if you can take the height difference.

You can cover terrazzo with any other type of flooring. Preparation is critical. Terrazzo is usually sealed many times during its lifetime. All sealers must be removed. If ceramic or stone are being installed the floor should be abraded first.
