Floor Stencils Have This Tiled Bathroom Makeover Covered!

Use Royal Design Studio tile stencils for a stenciled floor design

Rick and Mary Beth Holladay of The Art Factory in Germany finally decided to tackle their bathroom makeover project. The old red, vinyl floor needed replacing, but they didn’t have the time or money to invest in it. They found the perfect solution to their problem through Pinterest’s inspiring DIY projects using tile stencils from Royal Design Studio. They were delighted that painting over the existing old floor with tile patterned floor stencils was a perfect alternative to the expense and mess of removing the old tiles.

Makeover your bathroom with this DIY stenciled floor idea!

For their tile transformation, they used garage floor paint in both dark and light gray colors to create a sophisticated, neutral palette. They taped off the tile squares using Frog Tape, following the lines of the original tile floor.

Tile Floor Stencils for a DIY Bathroom Makeover

To create a classic tile effect on their bathroom floor, they chose our Verona Tile Stencil from our Tile Stencils Collection. Look how elegant this “tiled” floor is compared to the original vinyl! Who would guess that it was floor stencils?

Note: For high traffic areas such as the bathroom, we recommend using a durable, floor-rated topcoat seal the deal!

Hi Gail! That definitely works – our stencils work great on flat and smooth surfaces just like MDF. And the Sklyars Lace Stencil would look gorgeous on a floor! Make sure to seal it with a floor sealant when you’re done :)

I love your work! I bought an older double-wide mobile two years ago, and all the floors need to be done, but my budget is extremely small. I found some MDF plywood, 1/4" thick, that I’d like to lay down and then stencil. Do you think this would work? I’d love to start in my bedroom and use the Skylar Lace. Does this sound like a plan to you?

Hi Lily! You can sand the floor a bit to scuff up the surface and then apply Kilz oil-based primer. Then you can paint it, stencil it, and seal it with a water based topcoat. Hope that helps!

I would like to do this to a small bathroom floor, but read that if there is a shiny finish to the original vinyl tile then it won’t work. Is this true? Also my vinyl floor tile has a textured pattern already on it. Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
