Looking for inspiration on how to choose the right colour for your chequerboard floor? Chequerboard and check floors are a massive trend for 2022. We have an unrivalled selection of plain coloured floor tiles that can be used to create all chequerboard patterns, and everything goes this year –  we are seeing fabulous schemes that go way beyond the classic black & white! Our Heritage Squares, Check and Dovetail designs can work this trend in slightly smaller spaces, and can also be used to create and define ‘Spaces to escape’ such as Book Nooks, or to inject some luxe into a small laundry or utility areas. Today’s blog will take a look at some of our new favourite chequerboard floor combinations, from fresh spring tones to soft neutrals, perfect for both modern and more retro-inspired interiors.


Neutral floor styles for on-trend kitchens

As the spring months arrive, we’re loving incorporating natural neutrals alongside coloured kitchens. This combination allows us to maintain a contemporary feel whilst adding warmth with tones that imbue a sense of cosiness. Combine our Ecru and Latte White tiles for the perfect complementary kitchen tones, softening the look of colour block kitchens. Reminiscent of retro designs with a renewed sense of contemporary style, we’ve reimagined traditional chequerboard floors for modern-day living. Chequered floors are a trend set to stay for 2022 and beyond, transforming dull spaces into a canvas for your own personal style. Your kitchen, hallway or bathroom will become a talking point for interior inspiration, with a social and welcoming vibe created by the relaxing hue of neutral tiles.

Retro-inspired floors for modern lifestyles

Fresh pastel tones capture the essence of the spring and summer seasons, and there’s no better way to incorporate them into your home, than to take inspiration from retro kitchen designs and create your own style with a chequerboard floor. 2022 is the year we inject personality back into our homes and create spaces filled with joy and bold colour. Luxury vinyl floor tiles are a great investment, and we love the versatility of Bay Blue and Linen White. These tones are versatile enough to be styled with bold trending yellows or with soft neutrals, whatever your style may be. They’re easy to live with and create an uplifting feel in a variety of rooms. Why not renovate a once-forgotten space such as a laundry room or snug with the added luxe of check design? Find joy in the unexpected by trying out your own unique colour combinations.

Kitchens are at the heart of our homes, with many just needing a splash of colour to completely transform the look and feel of the space.

If you’re looking for a way to refresh your kitchen but not sure where to invest your budget, opting for a combination of colours within a chequerboard is an easy way to experiment with new tones.

Go chic with timeless monochrome

As much as we are loving colour for the season, embracing the modern elegance of monochrome flooring is the perfect way to add a sense of luxury to your interior scheme. Limitless luxe is set to be a top trend according to your Pinterest searches this year, with many of us inspired to give luxurious makeovers to neglected rooms of our home. Now is the time to mix your styles if it makes you happy, so embracing a pattern with a monochrome twist is an easy compromise.
