Tile flooring is a natural choice for kitchens. Tile is hard, durable, water-resistant and shrugs off stains. Plus, it’s COULD be beautiful. Could??? Well, we’re sure you’ve seen your fair share of tired tile in kitchens that are just begging to be renovated… including your own!

Lynn Lasser says, “I wanted to cover the badly yellowed vinyl tile in the kitchen. It always looked dirty! I had always wanted encaustic tile, but without removing the cabinets, it was going to be a very expensive proposition to replace the VCT floor. I used: Toledo Tile Stencil, Zinsser Bulls-Eye Primer, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® (Old White, Paris Grey, Coco, Duck Egg Blue, and Antoinette), Royal Stencil Brushes, foam roller, and Annie Sloan Floor Lacquer. What a transformation! I love how it sets off my vintage stove. This was my first stencil project.”
The thing about tiles is that those things don’t come cheap! Rowena Velasco-Camaldo wanted a tiled floor in her kitchen but kept coming back to square one every time she saw a price tag. She then found our easy-to-use and affordable Lisboa Tile Stencil, and knew it was the answer to her dream kitchen on a budget.
We always catch ourselves loitering in the kitchen, waiting for the good smelling food to be finally served, don’t you? Make sure your kitchen is ready for hungry guests like Chyrie Sell did. She painted her kitchen floor tiles with our Anatolia Tile Stencil.
Kim Kensinger says, “I have done a great deal of work to my kitchen over the past year. However, I wasn't sure how I wanted to deal with my dated beige tile floor. Then I discovered some beautiful examples of painted tile floors on your website. I started by painting the tile a warm gray. Next I used the Marbella Tile Stencil. The three colors I used were white, ivory, and metallic silver.” Color this kitchen GORGEOUS!
Carolyn Denham went boho chic with her kitchen makeover. She painted her kitchen floors with our Mandala Fusion Tile Stencil, a stencil pattern that is inspired by vintage embroidered suzani textiles and folk florals. They now are durable AND beautiful!
