Let these chalkboard walls inspire you to create functional space

Let these chalkboard walls inspire you to create functional space

Wall space in interior is very subjective. Some people adore empty canvases that reflect light create a clean, crisp environment. Others love to create emotion with wall paper, photography and art. But rarely do we see wall space used functionally. 

Some entry ways will be lined with coat racks and hat hooks, but throughout most homes wall space is left alone. Chalkboard walls are fast becoming popular throughout family homes and offices - and for good reason.

They can give a child creativity and it means Mum doesn't have to worry about the walls. They can bring order to a family home and can serve as a communal shopping list or weekly planner. They foster collaboration in home offices and can simply create a feature in a room. Whatever the purpose, chalk board walls do an exceptional job of serving it. 

You can buy chalkboard paint for as cheap as $14.90 from Bunnings by clicking here if you're thinking of a DIY project over the weekend. 

But for now, here are some of our favourite chalkboard walls to leave you with some inspiration...
