Painting older hardwood floors can give them new life without the expense and mess of refinishing them. Adding a stencil into the mix can also turn a tired floor into a beautiful design element in your home or outdoor space. A stencil pattern adds personality while hiding any wear and tear… plus it’s a DIY project you can be proud of! You can save a whole lot of money and if you don’t refinish and use the next best alternative: Floor Stencils.

Let your inner child out and get creative! The pattern possibilities with stencils are endless… For example, you can use our Lisboa Tile Stencil on an outdoor patio floor like Casey Debois did. We just love this unexpected color palette!
Carol Nolan loves how she turned her “ho-hum deck into a warm and inviting area to greet my neighbors and guests! I will be ordering from Royal Design Studio again!" Carol used wood stains, paint, and our Delightful Damask Stencil.
Our Marisol Tile Stencil is inspired by classic Spanish tile patterns, which makes it perfect for creating classic European style on hardwood floors.
Painting pattern onto a wood floor not only can create a custom boho look, but it can also camouflage a worn out surface. Just look at Dana Black Design’s bohemian bedroom with our Annapakshi Indian Damask Stencil peeking out!
Stenciled floors are just so doggone cute! Lauren Tompkins painted her hardwood floor with our Toledo Tile Stencil in cotton candy blue. Her once worn and damaged floor is now Instagram ready and makes a colorful backdrop for pups and more!
The light catches the beautiful pattern on Lovely Nova Designs’ painted hardwood floor. Our Lisboa Tile Stencil and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Paris Gray and Old White make this space a shabby chic decorator’s dream!
Our Contempo Trellis Stencil can make a big impact with its bold graphic design on not just walls, but also hard wood floors! Caroline Lizarraga gave her hardwood floor a faux rug look. Doggonnit, it looks awesome!
Shannon Carroll created a DIY faux rug effect by painting directly onto the hardwood floor of her entryway. Now her guests are greeted with a gorgeous Eastern Lattice Stencil design that is easier to keep clean than a real rug!
Maureen Cataldo says, “I used the Grecian Tile Damask Stencil to paint a "rug" on a new deck floor. I went with a deep yellow on the raw wood, and it looks great! I’m really happy with the finished look. Thank goodness for the ceiling filler stencil, too! I finished up all the edges without having to work with the full stencil. Have a big family gathering this weekend and I know it will blow them away!”
So, to recap - Stenciling a floor can help you hide imperfections, create a lovely focal point in your home or just add a dose of beauty to your space.
