If you're looking for an affordable and stylish way to spruce up your kitchen, stencils are a smart solution. Much cheaper than wallpaper, stencils can add interest to your walls, and there are many ways to use them in your kitchen. Let’s take a look at how kitchen stencils gave these 14 kitchens some much-needed delicious pattern:
Sincerely, Sara D recently stenciled her walls with our Chez Sheik Moroccan Wall Stencil. She says, “I love stencils because you can get the look of wallpaper without the commitment. They can easily be painted over if you grow tired of them.” The soft pattern and muted paint colors definitely gives the perfect finishing touch to her cute kitchen!
Paisley patterns are on trend especially in kitchen décor! With the help of stencils, you can welcome this trendy pattern into your own home décor in whatever paint colors you choose. Used with tone-on-tone colors, it is refined and sophisticated while with multiple color variations, it’s playful and energetic. On this accent wall, our Printed Indian Paisley Damask Wall Stencil looks incredible paired with a bright and clean overall design.
Taking inspiration from the lovely array of floral borders decorating the Taj Mahal, our Taj Tile Border Stencil will add an exotic touch to your kitchen backsplash. Combine it with our Taj Tile Wall Art Stencil for cohesive kitchen decor.
If you prefer to keep most of your kitchen fairly neutral, but want to include something unexpected, try stenciling your floor. There are tons of potential patterns to choose from, from smaller geometric designs to checkers to big and bold patterns, and they can be used on all types of floors, including vinyl, concrete, and wood. Here, Inspired Me Heather used our Sea Scrolls Stencil to soften the look of her dark hardwood floors.
A Home Full of Color had a linoleum floor and wanted to remodel her kitchen to have a more modern look. Saving her money for a future floor installation, she quickly transformed the kitchen by painting and stenciling the linoleum floor. The Lisboa Tile Stencil helped make a huge difference in her now-beautiful kitchen!
This DIYer knew tile was not in the works for her kitchen remodel – it was just too expensive! Instead, she used our Talavera Tile Stencils to mimic the look of those gorgeous ceramic tiles seen in Mexico or Spain. The blues, greens, and Tuscany yellow paint colors look divine!
The Hollywood Squares stencil makes an engaging appearance again, but this time it is gracing a floor. (Stencils are SO versatile!) Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body made the perfect creative choice for her hip kitchen’s stenciled floor.
Yes, many of us like to leave notes on the fridge, but did you know you can stencil words on a refrigerator too! Hueology Studio painted this beauty with Chalk Paint® from Annie Sloan knowing that our French Menu Lettering Stencil is perfect for typography lovers, language lovers, and French foodie lovers alike! Bon appétite!
Here’s a DIY tip: Stencil with plaster to get that raised finish for your kitchen backsplash! Izabella Interiors used our Elegancia Border Stencil to add this 3D pattern as a border around this kitchen’s countertops.
Ancient and yellowing refrigerators are sometimes an unavoidable reality. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Whatever your budget, painting a large graphic pattern onto your fridge with stencils is a fun way to spruce up this large but necessary eyesore. Our Moroccan Scallops Stencil painted in black and white serves up some stenciled style in this kitchen!
Painting a Chez Ali Moroccan floor design is also an interesting way to enhance the feel of a room. Check out the punch of color from those vibrant pinks and oranges in happy customer Rita’s kitchen! It’s refreshing to see such an intricate pattern stenciled on the floor, rather than the expected wall. What a pleasant surprise to greet your feet!
Statt Hotel (Statthaus) in Germany shared their design dilemma. “For years people tried to talk me into tiling the kitchen walls (more practical!) but as the apartments are not so big and the kitchens are open to the living areas I did not want to do it. That way the whole apartment would have felt like a kitchen.” She decided stenciling was the perfect design solution! By only stenciling certain areas of the kitchen, she was able to keep the design light, easy and not as structured as tile would have made it. Our Intricate Zelij Moroccan Stencil definitely adds a sunny yellow touch of Moroccan pattern the open layout of this kitchen!
Want to decorate your kitchen, but in a subtle way? Kitchen stencils don’t always have to be bold – they can also be exquisite in tone-on-tone paint colors that don’t contrast. Creative customer Heather used a flat white paint as a basecoat and our metallic Royal Stencil Crème in Pearl Oyster to highlight the pattern of our Tangier Lattice Wall Stencil in a sophisticated way.
