The classic black and white chequerboard pattern, popularized by MacKenzie Childs in the '80s, has resurged with a modern twist, finding a place not only on floors but also in kitchen accessories and decor. This pattern, known for its playful nature, has now become an enticing choice to enhance interiors, especially in kitchens.

Incorporating chequerboard prints
1. Chequerboard floors or backsplashes:
Explore traditional tile floors or paint a small section of your floor or backsplash for an eye-catching yet cost-effective upgrade.

2. Soft furnishings:
Add a chequered rug or smaller accessories like napkins or dishcloths to subtly introduce the trend into your space.

3. Wall Art:
Opt for chequerboard art prints or plates, creating a geometric focal point on dedicated walls or shelving.

4. Accessories:
Experiment with bold tableware or start with a teapot or utensil set, gradually embracing the trend.
