There was lots of good discussion in my recent post about checkerboard floors. Should these go on the square or on the diagonal? I was initially very pro-square, but readers sent in photos and comments, and I changed my mind: Go either way! Maryanna wrote:
I have checkerboard! But mine is 12-inch ceramic tile rather than vinyl. Mine is also set on the diagonal. I went round and round about it with the guy we hired to lay the tile (no big surprise there) but I insisted, as it opens the room up more and seems less “off” if the squares don’t line up perfectly along the cabinets or walls. Here’s a photo of the dining nook for reference.
Yum, Maryanna. I LOVE your dinette, too. And what brand and color is that yellow on your panelling — that is one terrific yellow — not too “green” and it really holds its own with the black and white!
