Interiors: Stenciled Floors

What do you think about stenciled floors? I've never really been a fan myself but after searching high and low for some examples, I found a few that I like (I am open minded after all). My favorite is undoubtedly the first space with the Spanish tile inspired floor. The second space has a very pretty lace design that I can't help but love and the third space is simply a stenciled floor classic that's made its way around the blogosphere and back again. I'm still not sure this look is for me as I'm a bit of a commitment phobe and rugs are just so darn easy to replace.  What about you?

I do adore the images of stencil on floors, particularly if the floor is nothing special, it's a great way to spruce it up. But, personally, I'd be hesitant to do anything to a wide plank old wood floor...but everything else is fair game! Love these images! xoxo Beth

If I had floors that were beyond repair or refinishing I'd paint them with a stencil in a heartbeat! Probably starting in a laundry room or mudroom (Ha, if I had one!), this can be a great look.

I would try it since it's cheaper than a rug.

i love the first room, i think its a great idea to give a room more character. i wonder how difficult it is to maintain or apply, i might have to look into that in the future! :) xoxo jcd

I LOVE the last pic. That design is beautiful. I have to admit though, the idea of painting our old original hardwood floors is daunting. Even though I do love that last floor, I don't know if I could commit either.

I love them. When I was house shopping I secretly kept an eye out for a wood floor that was in such major need for TLC I could get away with painting it. Sadly I didn't end up with paintable floors, but there is always the next house!

I like the last example, but sometimes I see a stenciled floor and think it looks like vinyl from an old kitchen. It CAN be done well, but it's hard.

I do actually love the third one, but it would be great in a mud room, something small and less committal.

Wow! Totally stunning. I love the mix of neutral patterns with bold accent colors.

I've always felt the same as you about stencilled floors--it seems so permanent compared to a rug, but that lace one is pretty fabulous!
