Fun Facts: #1) My post 10 Ways To Add Buffalo Check is one of my MOST popular posts.  #2) One of the pins (from that post) remains in my TOP 10 pins of all times.  Yep – just sayin’……

So, why is buffalo check so popular?

Like I mentioned in my post (mentioned above), buffalo check is a timeless pattern.  It’s been around forever, and can mix well with any other pattern.  In fact, it actually grounds other color palettes  – causing it to act as a neutral!!  Awesome!!  Plus, you can buy buffalo plaid basically in any color you want- which makes incorporating it into your previous home decor even that much easier.  Yes, please!!

And the biggest reason it’s so popular……wait for it….. buffalo check is just so stinkin’ cute!!  For some CRAZY reason – those big checks just make you smile – right?  Or maybe you prefer the smaller checks, like gingham.  Either way, the check pattern is bold enough to stand alone.  And it makes the perfect backdrop to make any other accent color “pop!!”  Are you ready to try it out yet?

If you’re still on the fence, here are 41 reasons buffalo check is still going strong!

10 Ways to Add Buffalo Check

Buffalo check is a timeless pattern that has been trending for the last couple of years.  It adds a fun and fresh look to any room, and is easy to incorporate.  You can find it in almost every color, so it remains popular for all decor styles.   Favorite color trends still tend to lean towards navy check and black check, but any color will work.  If it is too bold of a pattern for you, use a smaller size check instead.  10 Ways to Use Buffalo Check   (without breaking the bank).

10 ways to use Buffalo Check  (without breaking the bank)

1 – Throw Pillows

2 – Table Runners/Table Covers

3 –  Curtains, Valances, & Shades

4 – Chairs/Cushions/Bar Stools – Upholstery

5 – Lampshades/Light Pendants

6 – Ottomans/Benches/Poufs

7 – Napkins/Placemats

8 – Rugs/Tile Flooring

9 – Bedding

10 – Wallpaper/Wall Tile


10 ways to use Buffalo Check  (without breaking the bank)

1- THROW PILLOWS

Throw pillows are a small way to make a big impact, and are light on the pocketbook. They can be a short term or long term commitment, and come in different sizes.  You can also change out most pillow covers and tuck them away in a drawer for easy storage.

2 – TABLE RUNNERS & TABLE COVERS

You can use a fabric runner on a dining/kitchen table, or use it on a console/buffet.  It adds just a little bit of color to a plain piece of furniture, and sets a beautiful backdrop for dishes and stemware.  Or add buffalo check as a table cover for maximum drama to anchor the entire place setting.

3 – CURTAINS, VALANCES, SHADES

Add a small amount of check fabric to the edge of a plain curtain panel/valance with stitch witchery, if you want to add a custom trim look.  Iron it on, and then you can take it off if/when you want to change it.  You can also sew your own valance or curtains with buffalo check fabric (from Hobby Lobby) or buy a pair  – see below.

4- CHAIR/CUSHION/BAR STOOLS – UPHOLSTERY

Cover an existing chair from home, or buy a chair cushion, accent chair, or even bar stools.  You could cover a kitchen/dining chair, bench cushion, or antique accent chair for a DIY project.   ***TIP*** If you want to go bold, use at least a pair of cushions or chairs for more emphasis, and go with the larger big check print.  For a more subtle look, go with lighter colors and the smaller check print.

5- LAMPSHADES/LIGHT PENDANTS

Lampshades and light pendants can add a playful dose of buffalo check without overwhelming anything else in the room it is in.  It can be used as the only pattern, keeping the rest of the accessories neutral (so it really pops), or use it with other patterns to add interest.  Cover an existing lampshade with your own fabric, or buy lampshades- see below.

6 – OTTOMANS, BENCHES, & POUFS 

Add ottomans, storage bench, or poufs to your home for a small pop of color.  These seating “gems” are perfect for extra guests, holding throw pillows/blankets and can easily tuck under consoles when not in use.  You can even use these as an coffee table or end tables depending on your living room arrangement or pull up to your dining table for a little whimsy.  These are definitely a go-to at my house.

  7- NAPKINS/PLACEMATS

Using dinner napkins/placemats is a very easy way to add buffalo check to your table setting.  Different colors can be used throughout the year for many holiday events (try red, black, and green).   Any color will work, so just play around with the colors you like most.

***TIP***  You can  use buffalo check napkins to make cafe curtains. Just use clip rings to hang, and/or hem rod pocket with stitch witchery.  They work great in kitchens.

8- RUGS/TILE FLOORING

If you are afraid to go “all in” with buffalo check on floors, use a 4′ x 6′ rug (or smaller) in an entry, powder bath, or at back door to add just a punch.  More daring- use a 5′ x 8′ rug (or larger) to set the tone of a living room, kitchen, or dining room.  Carpet squares and floor tiles are another floor option as well, just more permanent/costly.

9- BEDDING

Use buffalo check on duvets, comforters, sheets, pillowcases and/or throw pillow to add it to bedrooms.   Duvets and comforters make a larger impact, and throw pillows add a smaller impact.  Buffalo check is extremely versatile- can go in both adult and kids’ bedrooms.  Add white to really make it pop, and add bright colors to make it playful.  You can also tone it down with natural colors like tan and beige, or pair with burlap fabric.

10-WALLPAPER/WALL TILE

Buffalo check wallpaper and tile are definitely not temporary additions to your home, and will be more costly than the other nine options mentioned.  But do I really need to explain the WOW factor they provide??!!  This navy and black buffalo check Wallpaper by Caitlin Wilson is adorable.  You can also do the buffalo check tile pattern in the shower (above pic), also designed by Caitlin Wilson.  Both of them make a statement, but yet still keep the style classic and clean.
