Trending: Checkerboard Flooring
True story: reDesign home’s Laurie Renovation is one of our most beloved project reveals of all time. Inspired by a travel photo from the South of France, this project came together with a distinctly European influence using a honed marble and limestone pattern for the kitchen and pantry flooring.
You might have seen this Modern Tudor home by Bria Hammel in the pages of Traditional Home, and not without good reason. It’s a home with interest and character around every corner, including the beautifully designed sunroom. The Bria Hammel team opted for a marble checkerboard pattern tile floor, giving new life to a classic look.
While this home looks straight out of the European countryside, it’s actually set in Houston, Texas. Designed in the hands of Marie Flanigan, it features a diamond checkered flooring throughout the entry, hallway and kitchen.

As the Creative Director of deVOL Kitchens, Helen Parker knows a thing or two about good design. This image is a peek inside her own kitchen, with black and white marble checkerboard flooring from deVOL’s sister company, Floors of Stone.
Last year we posted this image from O’Hara Interiors to our Instagram page, and you all went WILD. To be fair, it’s one of the coolest seating nooks we’ve ever seen, designed with contrast, balance, and warm tones galore. There’s so much to love, but the porcelain black and white checkerboard flooring is a total standout.
Cara and Tom Fox used checkerboard flooring to create a visual transition, separating the mudroom from the kitchen in their client’s new home. The key takeaway? There’s no space too small for a touch of checkerboard tile.
Once again, Bria Hammel put her own spin on a classic look with checkerboard flooring in her client’s mudroom. Aiming to create a high contrast look while maintaining the traditional feel of the home, she added classic black and white tiled flooring as a nod to the history of the house.
There are so many ways to get the checkerboard flooring look, but Landed Interiors & Homes might have nailed the most unique. They brought in artist Caroline Lizarraga to create a painted floor, bringing endless amounts of character to this new addition kitchen.

Contrary to popular belief, checkerboard flooring isn’t just for interiors. In fact, we’re seeing it all over the outdoor entertaining scene, like this set-up designed by Studio McGee.
