Checkerboard floors have been around for centuries. They are a timeless classic that can complement any room or style decor – a bold statement, yet with an historic grace and elegance. And now Marblehead can claim it’s own artisan of geometric floor painting, Rob Warner.
Rob’s first interest in this specialty came upon a visit to Key West, where he learned how to make hand-painted floor cloths. When it came time to refresh his own kitchen floor, Rob and his wife, Hanna, decided on the checkered look without the cloth.
The result (below) is an absolute beauty. It took time and the meticulous care of a craftsman, but so does anything worthwhile!
Much of the charm of painted wood floors is that the character of the wood is still visible, it’s grain and joinery. If you love the appeal of antiquity, whether in your cozy kitchen or formal foyer, this is definitely an option to consider.
Here are a few more rooms made spectacular by painted checkered floors.
