This orderly and fun trend has been coming in strong in recent months. The chequerboard trend has graduated from bathroom tiles to all interior areas — including textiles and kitchenware. Here, we'll break down why.

ADDS EDGE

A checkerboard print (usually) consists of squares in two different colours positioned in alternating positions. This trend may remind some of the earlier eras of punk and indie. But those days are gone, and the chequerboard trend's strong graphic qualities now work well to give a little edge and a contemporary feel to a home.

IT'S TIMELESS

While trends can make things feel new again, the checkerboard print has been around for thousands of years. For example, Checkerboard floors were trendy during the Renaissance in Europe. A few centuries later, black and white linoleum or ceramic tiles with a checkered look became popular flooring in kitchens and bathrooms. Fast forward to today, the pattern is featured in many different design elements, offering a retro yet modern look.

IT'S VERSATILE

The great thing about this trend-setting print is its many ways to incorporate it into your style. It's effortless to include in any room – a bedroom, office, or living room. An easy way to capitalize on this trend is by incorporating it into your wall art. And, if you want something a little more, you can never go wrong with a throw pillow or a candle – just one detail can turn any room into an eyecatcher.
