Are you always looking to add something classic but unexpected to your home decor? Look up! Add checkered ceilings rather than floors.
Right now, we are crushing on everything and anything black and white but black and white checkered floors are a bit too expected for our home decor aesthetic. So we are taking a poll — should we try black and white checkered ceilings? Our gut is yes!
We have two sources of inspiration. First is the Charlotte Ritz Carlton’s Cocoa Lab. How fun are these ceilings!

And second is Stacy Risenmay’s black and white checkered kitchen ceiling. Clearly this black and white checkered ceiling look works equally well in residential and commercial settings!

Once settled on our look, we again turned to Milan over at Decorative Ceiling Tiles to help us create the ceiling of our dreams. Milan offered two alternatives using faux tin tiles. The first is a simple, clean look. And the second is more ornate, more vintage inspired.
