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?



  1. Brown and cream is my favorite combo! Well, obviously since my bedroom is brown! But, I would try to step outside my comfort zone and pick something like grey and white! I just love the floor all together!

    Thanks so much for commenting on my blog tonight! And I would love for you to share what worked for you. I've heard removing sugars from your diet. I hope I can find something that works for me!

  2. I love the checked look as well. I am building a new home with checkered diamond pattern floors using grey and cream I wood have done white but my cabinets are cream and that would look funny.
