Checked floors just feel so classic and timeless no matter what generation they are from. One of the houses I looked at online has checkered floors, as much as I didn't think they were really "me" they are totally growing on me! They add just right graphic punch particularly in older homes. I think sometimes in larger kitchens they can swallow the whole room being too graphic. But in a smaller square or galley kitchen they are perfect. I also like them better on a diagonal.
Here are some of my favorite inspirational photos::

So what do you think? Do you embrace the checks in a kitchen?
