5 ways to use stencils in your home decor

I’ve been obsessed with stenciling and can’t stop talking about it. I’ve been blowing up my Instagram with my painted tile projects, and can’t get enough. It’s funny because it seems like things really have come full circle. When I was little, I remember my mother using stencils as a border around several rooms in the house, as well as a back splash in the kitchen. She even stenciled large pieces of linoleum to make rugs!

If you know me, you know I love giving each room a little pop of something special and stencils are a budget-friendly way to do so. There are so many patterns and sizes to choose from. The sky really is the limit. Here are my top five favorite ways to incorporate the use of stencils in home decor. Thanks for reading!

Stenciled tile floor

I wrote about this in my last blog post. In my opinion, stenciled tiles are a no fail show stopper. It can be a lot of work, but it is totally worth it!

Kitchen back splash

I haven’t done this in my home, but I think it can be used in a subtle modern way, or you can make it bright and bold. There are no rules in my book!

Accent wall

There are so many great options for stencils to use to create a really special accent wall. I have a thing for whimsical floral walls, especially in a child’s space.

Stenciled rug

This is something that I have done a couple of times and it’s one of those things where I curse it during the process, but love the results. If you have an old worn out rug that is at the end of it’s life, this is a way to help extend the life of that dusty old gal. I’ve used every kind of paint under the sun, but I suggest Chalk Paint if you want a nice finish.

Stenciled stair risers

Whether you have bare bones stairs that you want to fix up or you just want a change from the ordinary, stenciling stair risers can make a real impact.
