Have you heard? Checkerboard kitchen floors are back! But this time, you don't need to have a rambling farmhouse or a mansion in the south of France to try the look. In fact, it's even better if you don't: We're currently obsessing over checkerboard floors in seaside cottages, tiny city apartments, and everywhere in between. Checkered kitchen floors can look super-modern or charming, graphic or retro. They come in all kinds of colors and hues, so there's something for every style. And there are so many ways to get the look, from real tile to easy, affordable stick-on vinyl to just straight up painting some squares on an existing floor (here's how).
