Home & Garden Blog

If you've been thinking about repainting the interior of your home, you might be looking for some new and unique paint options. One fairly new paint option you might come across is chalkboard paint. Gaining popularity with parents, chalkboard paint allows you to turn any wall space or door in your home into a chalkboard surface. Here are some great ideas to put this novel new paint to use in your home.

Kitchen Uses

Chalkboard paint is a great investment for your home's kitchen. Whether you opt to paint your cabinets so that you can keep track of ingredients, recipes, and brief notes or you turn a section of your kitchen wall into a chalkboard for grocery lists, meal plans, and other organizational purposes, chalkboard paint can save you considerable time and effort, adding new convenience to your kitchen.

Living Areas

If there's a main living area where the whole family tends to gather, that's a perfect place for a chalkboard wall. It makes a great resource for phone messages, notes to each other, and even chore lists. You can even keep track of the kids' homework assignments and sports activities so that everyone can see it at a glance.

You don't have to cover an entire wall, either. Especially in a living room or family room, an entire wall might seem like a bit much for chalkboard paint. Instead, consider building a decorative frame around a section of the wall that's been painted with chalkboard paint so that you have a clearly designated chalkboard area.


Whether it's a designated playroom or even your child's bedroom, a chalkboard wall is an invaluable investment. It gives your kids a creative outlet while typically keeping them from drawing on other walls with markers, crayons, and the like. When kids know that a specific section is perfectly okay to create their artwork on, they can be free to be creative and enjoy the space.

Home Office

When it comes to tracking bills, managing your schedule, and coordinating the household tasks, your home office is probably where it all happens. Chalkboard paint is a great way for you to keep up with the dynamic demands of the house, your work, and your finances. You can easily update the information with nothing more than an eraser and chalk. 

As you can see, chalkboard paint is a versatile investment for any interior painting project you've got planned. No matter which rooms you decide to use it in, it's sure to serve its purpose well. For more information about various paint options, visit a local paint store.
