A softer approach to the trending checkerboard floor, we love using browns and greys for a warmer check look without venturing into the bright colours and pastels. Squares Steel is a sophisticated grey tile that injects modernity into a space, especially those with an industrial feel, whilst Ecru is a contemporary brown that softens a colour drench or contemporary kitchen, whilst adding a point of interest.
For those homes that are more cosy and rustic, we love the rich, chocolate tone of Poppyseed which, when paired with plenty of natural textures creates a wonderfully welcoming and neutral vibe.
Inject some colour and playfulness into your home with a retro-inspired checkerboard style that embraces the bright and beautiful. We love Squares Bay Blue paired with Squares Linen White for its dreamy tone that’s both thoroughly modern and hugely practical at the same time.
Style with clashing patterns and lush textures such as sumptuous velvet and solid oak pieces, a blue and white checkerboard floor is one of the most contemporary ways you can bring the check trend to your home this season.
If you’re after a more traditional look, you can’t go wrong with a black and white checkerboard floor. Perfect for those areas of your home that see a lot of traffic, such as hallways and kitchens, an understated yet classy monochrome check screams modern elegance and timeless style.
Embracing the mix of old and new is set to be another huge home trend this year, with ‘Hipstoric Homes’ being coined by Pinterest as an aesthetic many of us will be showcasing. Opting for a classic black and white checkerboard floor allows you to blend eclectic interiors with vintage-inspired finishes.
A red and white checkerboard floor brings a splash of modern, joyful colour that can completely transform a space and bring individuality to your home. We love Venetian Red and Linen White as a combination, especially when styled alongside other bold colours and modern accents. It’s playful, fun and perfectly captures the essence of the checkerboard trend.
Want something a little different to the traditional checkered floor? Geometric pattern and eclectic colour is a great alternative way to embrace the trend. Our Dovetail and Check collections, both designed in collaboration with Neisha Crosland, boast a multitude of colours and patterns that would work well as a modern alternative to the checkerboard; especially Dovetail French Clay and Check Shadow which both work perfectly in a kitchen or bathroom.
You can still play with colour with these alternatives too; Check Blue offers a beautiful rich tone that works wonderfully against fresh whites and wooden textures, whilst Dovetail Lavastone can bring a subtle statement to your space, especially when paired with marble surfaces and blended with complementary blues and greys.
