A few years ago we lived in a townhouse with really unfortunate kitchen floors. One day I reached my limit and couldn’t take the ugly floors any more. Even though it was a rental I bought two boxes each of black and white peel and stick laminate tiles, and put down a classic checkerboard pattern. Instant (and very inexpensive) fix!
While I love a good checkerboard, there are some really ideas out there for twists on the classic black and white kitchen or bath floors.
