There is something so incredibly classic about a black and white check floor. Not only are they full of contrast, but they also are a symbol of an enduring home. Black and White checkerboard floors are very relevant to a Monday. White with the promise of a new week, and black to remind you about the death of a weekend.
Black and white floors are a perfect platform to showcase pretty prints and bold patterns. They are also a great way to add a hint of drama to a neutral space. Contemporary or classic, modern or traditional, black and white floors work for all types of interiors. The juxtaposition creates a timeless tiling that can weather all events in the life of a home. Here are a few divine decor images full of the perfect contrasting combination.
