Make Any Room Special with Stencils
Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Monday, February 28, 2011
If you want to add appeal to any room in your home, try using stencils. Painted stencils are used to add words, pictures and designs to the walls of your home. There are many ways that stencils can be used throughout your home to showcase your furniture, artwork and your individual style.
Stencils Work Well in Small Spaces
A foyer or an entryway is the perfect place to use stencils in your home. If you don’t have a sunroom, but love the outdoors, stencils of plants, trees and leaves add energy to a foyer. Your bathroom brings the beach into your home with stenciled saltwater fish, palm trees and sea turtles. If your staircase is lined with photos or paintings, ornate “frames” can be stenciled on the wall to feature your collection.
Stencils Accent a Beautiful Bedroom
There are many ways painted stencils can accent a bedroom. In a children’s room, sports-themed stencils can be used to bring basketball, baseball and football into the room. In the master bedroom, formal stencils work well- trailing cherry blossoms, delicate florals and bold stripes can turn any wall into an accent wall. Keep a guest room interesting and fun with stenciled walls of gingham, stripes or plaid.
Punch Up Your Kitchen with Stencils
Stencils brighten up a kitchen and add fun to the space where we seem to spend so much of our time. Stencils that work well in a kitchen include nature themes, like ivy, birds, butterflies and flowers. A brocade-like stencil or fleur-de-lis adds luxury to a formal kitchen. And a classic country kitchen sparkles with stenciled roosters, or words and phrases that evoke country living.
