Checkerboard Floors


Checkerboard Floors

Checkerboard floors have a classic and historic look that have been used for centuries. They can be seen in such places as paintings by Vermeer, the Queen’s staircase at Palace of Versailles,  and they were especially prominent in kitchens dating from the 1920s and 30s.  Because my farmhouse was built in the early 1920s, one of my goals for my kitchen is to install a checkerboard floor, not so much to have it look exactly the way it would have when it was built, but more as a subtle nods to its history.

My favorite combination for checkerboard floors is grey and white, and I especially love it in marble and limestone.
