Trending: Checkered Decor

Do you love the latest trend of checkered pattern home decor? Get inspired with these checkered decor finds for your home and DIY ideas!

I’ve noticed something in the recent months when looking at interiors online – whether it is Pinterest or Instagram…. checkerboard print. From a gorgeous living room with a large checkered rug or a home office with a checkered accent wall – the checkered trend is everywhere. 

And I, for one, love it. I especially love it when used sparingly in rooms with neutral colors. But if bright colors are your thing – there’s also plenty of ways to use colorful checkered decor to create more visual interest in your room. 

This checkered decor roundup contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t recommend wholeheartedly. Read my full disclosure here.

The classic black and white checkerboard pattern floors have been around forever and there’s a traditional feel to them. They are seriously timeless and will always be a favorite of mine.

Even if it is not your cup of tea, you can appreciate the signature look, right? But new floors are definite a long-term investment, so there’s gotta be a better way to get this look. 

But the latest trend is taking this classic pattern and bring it into other accents and furniture in small doses. I’m talking area rugs or an accent pillow. Or maybe a picture frame or a decorative tray. Even bath towels or a coffee mug. Adding checkered decor room accents, like this, is an easy way to get this look in your living space. 

Checkered Decor: Options To Buy

With this huge resurgence in checkerboard patterns I thought I would round up some of my favorite checkered decor finds from Amazon. I’ve included a variety of décor options below so you can find something that works for your space.

Now, I think these items can fit in with some many different aesthetic styles – from traditional to boho. The key here when playing around with new patterns, especially trendy items, is to just add a little bit at a time. 

Happy shopping!
