Benjamin Moore Starts a Trend with Stenciled Kitchen Backsplashes

Benjamin Moore’s Color Trends Brochure Features Cutting Edge Stencils In Stenciled Kitchen Backsplash

Good morning, my creative home renovators!  Today, Cutting Edge Stencils is chatting about a home decorating trend that we’ve seen more and more of this year.  It all started earlier this year when we popped up in Benjamin Moore’s 2013 Color Trends, within their Urbanite color palette.

It’s a palette of colors that are crisp, chic and let off a cool cosmopolitan vibe.  Ah! It’s no wonder that our stencils fit in so well here!  Benjamin Moore features a city-chic kitchen that’s been painted in soft yet sophisticated colors and to top it all off they painted our Chain Link Allover Stencil to create a unique backsplash. Gorgeous, don’t you think?

To recreate this gorgeous kitchen’s look, paint your backsplash in Benjamin Moore sparrow AF-720 and then stencil our Chain Link Allover pattern in camouflage 2143-40.  The best part about this project (other than being featured in one of favorite paint company’s trendy forecast) is that it’s so achievable!  Stenciling a backsplash in a kitchen is way cheaper than some of the alternatives like stone and tile.  Yet it the addition of the stenciled pattern in this space can be stunning. We think it’s an awesome idea!

Need More Painted & Stenciled Backsplash Inspiration?

Well look no further!  It certainly looks like Benjamin Moore was onto a trend when they stenciled their kitchen wall that has quickly caught on!  This past July, This Old House Magazine featured the Julian family.  This handy DIY family was working on a kitchen redo when they decided to stencil the backplash in their kitchen.  After putting down a gray base coat in a flat finish (Clark+Kensington’s Ominous Cloud),  Haley Julian used white semigloss (Dutch Boy’s Ultra White) to apply the Hourglass pattern.  Don’t know about you but we’d love to pull up a stool and hang out in this breathtaking kitchen!

Then there’s this stenciled stud that we found on the Remodelaholic.  Ashely, a creative DIYer, was working on a kitchen redo on a really tight budget.  Instead of using a pricey tile to line the kitchen backsplash, she decided to stencil the area using our Casablanca pattern in limey shade of green.  We love how the stencil pops against the all white cabinets!  Stunning!

Not sure which direction to take your kitchen makeover?  We all know that kitchen projects can be full ups and downs.  Just like this Ikat Zig Zag stencil in Hillary’s kitchen.  Hillary, a crafty fan, started the striped pattern in the dining section of her kitchen and then continued it along the wall as the backsplash.  We love her creative continuity!

Even our Instagram fans, like Audrie, have picked up on this inexpensive kitchen trend.  Audrie used our Zagora Stencil in a warm golden hue to give the heart of her home a little patterned punch!  We love it, don’t you?!

    I learned how to stencil about 25 years ago. At that time, there were only flowers and ducks mostly to be had. Now I am inspired again. Love the foam roller idea–way faster than the pounce method. Getting more and more inspired on every link. TY

    Okay guys, I bought the big stencil; everything was going fine until I got to the light switches (3). I got totally verklempt and messed up. Ended up painting over the whle thing with white paint and covering it up with some old wall decor. Anybody wanna tell me the secret?

  • CESteam

    Hi Judith! Those light switches can be tricky, what you can do is remove the light switch plates so you can stencil the area without a problem and once it dries you can put the plates on and any imperfections that you have in the area you would cover most of it with the plates :) Hope this helps!
