I have always sworn to myself I will eventually have a kitchen with a black & white checkered floor, I know they are not every ones cup of tea but I simply ADORE them!

My farmhouse had a black and white checked floor. It ran from the kitchen, through the hallway, and on into the bathroom.

Unfortunately, our floor had some strange finish or texture, and it was impossible to clean. The crevices (farmhouse floors should not have texture or crevices, just in case you might someday need to know that) gathered darkness, which wasn't really dirt, but just...well, I don't know. Mopping did no good, and once a week I spent the afternoon on the floors with a toothbrush to clean the floor. That particular pattern was discontinued not long afterwards--wonder why?

It's still the best looking floor I've ever had!

we had a black & white checkered floor in our kitchen and dining area when I was a kid. It made for the best hopscotch games! Some times all I could touch were the black ones and other days it was white. Oh, memories!
