Checkered Floors - Favorite Thing #2

I just love checkered floors in the kitchen.

I really, really want a checkered floor in my kitchen.

My preference would be on point.

But I would take squared up checks.

Did I mention that I really love checkered floors?

My husband and I are looking to buy a new house as in we get to pick the decorator items. We’re on a real tight budget but I’m going to see if we can get two colors of tile in the kitchen. If it’s not too expensive, I want to have it laid on point. But again, I’ll take it squared up if that’s the only way we I can get it.

If I can’t get the tile checkered, I found out that ceramic tile can be painted. I don’t know if that would work well in the kitchen with the moisture and traffic, not to mention the dogs in and out.

Below is my inspiration picture. I want to use brown and cream tiles for the checkers. I want to have it put in the entry way also just like this picture.

What do you think about checkered floors? What colors would you use?
