Checkerboard Flooring

Not only is this a fun design but unlike tile, the pattern can be changed and repainted or completely erased with replacing the entire floor.

  1. Hi Scott,
    Help! I have an Owen Burns 1920 cottage in Sarasota, Fl that I use as an office for my private practice (psychologist). Tired of the carpet, I have pulled it up and half the floors are the original hardwood floors and the front half is plywood. I guess that someone enclosed a front porch into the living room in the ’50’s. On a limited budget, yet taste conscious – and I may want to live here one future day, how and where do I begin to create a tasteful fitting room with the old floors? Everyone says that I will need to put in all new floors, but the rest of the house is the original and I think I would lose a lot in taste and history. Any ideas are most appreciated!

    1. You can weave in replacement flooring after removing the plywood. Try to find salvaged flooring from a architectural salvage yard and it will match even better.
