{check it out}

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? 


  1. When we were little, our Grandmother had check floors in the kitchen of her summer home on the Chesapeake Bay. It was perfect in her 50's style split-level that my Grandfather built her. We have some really happy memories of that floor, that kitchen, and that lovely woman!
