Chalkboards are a convenient and fun way to give you space in your home to write lists, draw pictures and organise your life. Here we’re taking a look at a few ways that chalkboards can be used in your interiors.

One of the traditional ways where chalkboards are being used are in the kitchen. They are a great way to transform a door or a wall into a place where you can add items to a shopping list, keep a particularly good recipe or even just amuse yourself with a doodle!


And for entertaining, a well-placed chalkboard can really add a sense of class as is shown by the menu-style chalkboard below. The clean black and white colours are well displayed in the rich, wooden frame and if your handwriting’s up to it, can add a delicate touch of distinction!


There’s something about the familiar and tactile chalkboard that adds weight and definition to a room. This example below highlights the rough slate feel of the chalkboard, and the carefully crafted drawing turns the humble chalkboard into a work of art itself!


Chalkboards work great in the garden too. The large chalkboard is a handy way to make lists and reminders of what needs to be done, and the weatherproof nature of the chalkboard means it won’t fall to pieces regardless of what the weather decides to do!


But above all, it’s that classic design of the chalkboard that keeps it coming back into our homes. The simple black and white colours will go just about anywhere, and what’s best is that if you don’t like what’s on it, you can simply rub it off and start again!
