This midcentury bathroom dreamed up by West Elm is right on trend. Modern 3x12 Ceramic Tile in chalk white Calcite decorates the uncluttered walls while a creative checkerboard floor of Glazed Thin Brick in Big Horn and Columbia Plateau meets the moment with unmatched style.
A great backyard pool is all about first impressions. Offset stripes of 2x6 tile in charcoal Quartzite and light grey Dolomite are instant eye-catchers on the waterline and stairs as you wade in for a refreshing swim.
Step inside a traditional bathroom with a pastel twist. Designer Kim Wolfe created an unconventional checkerboard floor thanks to Handpainted Squiggle Tile (from our collab with Block Shop Textiles!) in minty Plein Aire Motif, while 4x4 Ceramic Tile in Tumbleweed with 6x6 Cove Base Trim clads the wall as an attractive complementing wainscot.
Discover a powder room with personality at The Lake Placid Lodge. The showstopping checkerboard floor is made from 6x6 Ceramic Tile in Dolomite and Tusk, while wainscoting of 3x3 Ceramic Tile and Mini Round Liner in soothing green Eucalyptus adds depth and variation to the petite space.
This modern kitchen gets the checkered treatment thanks to 3x3 Mosaic Tiles in Tusk and Dolomite, and the result is elevated eclectic that's both timeless and right on-trend. Even better? You can experience the checkerboard charm in person–this lodge is available to book on Airbnb.
Come for the ornate sconces, but stay for the 3x3 checkerboard tile floor in Cardamom and Mist and a custom shower in matching 2x8 subway tiles. This Art Deco-inspired powder room designed by Claire Thomas for Harding House is truly one for the books.
