Using Tile to Build a Marble Checkerboard Floor

Marble checkerboard floors are growing in popularity and for good reason! Merging the organic beauty of marble with the classic checkerboard pattern truly brings forth the best of both. Marble checkerboard floors are among the most aesthetically pleasing variations on the checkered theme, the signature striations and shimmer of marble augmenting this classic pattern. Rather than solid, plain black and white, marble checkerboard floors bring a more natural, organic look to this classic pattern. 

Riad Tile’s Options

Our marble checkerboard tile is available in multiple sizes, using several different varieties of marble. Here’s a quick rundown on each of the varieties of marble Riad Tile uses for our checkerboard patterns:


A resolute-yet-delicate variety of gray marble quarried in northern Italy. Bardiglio offers a dark gray coloration streaked with tinges of lighter gray, making it a perfect partner for other types of marble. 

Nero Marquina

A deep black marble crackling with bright white veining. Nero Marquina is something of a rare marble, produced by uncommon geologic processes occurring in only a handful of places across the globe. 

Calacatta Gold

With tinges of bright gold and soft gray, this vibrant white tile is known across the world for its luxurious look. Calacatta Gold is held in high esteem and is considered to be one of the finest varieties of marble. 

Casablanca Carrara

Riad Tile’s signature white marble. Casablanca Carrara is a delicate off-white with soft gray veining. Our customers have used Casablanca Carrara for spaces across the stylistic spectrum.

Italian Statuary

The quintessential white marble, Italian Statuary is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of white marble. Our Italian Statuary is sourced from the most esteemed Italian quarries.
