Wood Tile / Checkerboard Style?

Hey

I have a bedroom which is about 200 sq. ft. I am looking at wood tiles but the 6x24 tiles that I like are expensive (~$6 sf).

They have wood 16x16 (I think?) tiles that look like a solid piece of wood (~$1.70 sf). I was thinking about alternating these vertical and horizontal in a checkerboard effect.

Anyone done this or have any opinions?

The room has a whitewashed pine T&G ceiling, and the floor tile would be a very light colour. The walls are going to be dark blue lower with a chair rail and light blue upper, white trim all around.

a rendering:


Thanks for any advice!

Lee,
I feel it would look like plywood once it is installed. Just my opinion!
