  1. I sell the black/white checkered flooring on eBay. Both in a 9′ or 12′ width. Each of the
    squares on the pattern are 9″x9″. It is a
    commercial grade flooring and I have been selling it now for 4 years. It’s my best seller!
    I sell it under 2 user id’s: TikiToesCA and
    Michele Craft

  2. Hi, I’ve just bought a 1912 craftsman with some VERY ugly old lino on the floor. The kitchen has light green/dark brown tiling on the sink (maybe original) and light blue/red tiling on half of the walls!
    I am thinking of putting in black/white checkerboard, or wood? No Idea- here are some pics.

  3. Hi Sasha,
    The pics aren’t coming through. You can get a free image hosting account at and upload them, then paste the urls in a comment.
    It sounds like anything would be an improvement though! Don’t forget about stone, ceramic or porcelain tile – you’re going to find that your choices are endless! You might want to walk around a store like Home Depot or Lowe’s for inspiration as well. Lots of dreaming to do!

  4. I’m not very familiar with Tarkett’s lino. I do know that Marmoleum is a good product. Most linos are good choices as well. I would suggest doing internet searches to view what customers have to say about their experience with these products. is a good website for looking up user opinions on products too.

  5. Hi Kerry,
    I’m in the USA, so really don’t know what’s available in Canada. Several posts above yours there is a somebody who sells this on eBay. I would think you should be able to find one product line of tile that has black tiles and white tiles.

  6. Hello,
    We just purchased a mid century rancher and wanted to do the kitchen floor in a olive green/off white chekerboard pattern, preferably in a laminate. Does laminate come in pre arranged checkerboard patterns or is it done on a tile by tile basis. None of the on line florring sights really explain this.

  7. Hi Mark,
    You might get lucky and find vinyl or linoleum flooring in the colors you want in a checkerboard pattern, but chances are you’ll just have to find two different colors of tile and do it yourself.

  8. I am trying to do a black and white checkerboard floor in my kitchen and am having a lot of trouble finding the correct materials. I have finally located a 12×12 ceramic tile but would love to find a true linoleum in either 12×12 or 16×16. I’m not able to find a solid black or white. Any ideas?

  9. Hi Kate,
    If you look directly under this post, you’ll see a link to see all of the comments…. click on that. There is a post by an ebay seller who sells these, though I don’t remember if the tiles are lino or not. Have you tried doing a google search?

  10. Yes, I did check Ebay and they look like 6″ vinyl. I’ve also googled multiple times (that’s how I found this website!) I’ve really been surprised at how difficult the floor has been to find. I thought a b&w checkerboard floor was quite popular. I see lots of pictures of it in the decorating magazines. I just can’t seem to create it!

  11. Hi, I am thinking about doing my open kitchen and balcony in black and white flooring. Will it appear too “busy” when the rest of the house’s flooring is dark wood? Will it appear awkward and not flow right? Also, does it go well with yellow pastel walls? Thanks!

  12. Hi Matt,
    I’m not sure what your definition of “too busy” would be, but I think of checkerboard flooring as ‘stylish simplicity’. The colors can harmonize with any other colors as black and/or white go with anything.

  13. Hi, I have just found the perfect color green and white tiles for a checkerboard floor for my kitchen. But, I have a small 10×10 kitchen and the awesome vinyl tiles that I found in the exact colors that I want only come in 16×16. Do you think that size will be too big for my small kitchen. Will it make it look even smaller?
