Chalkboards are not just for the classroom. The first introduction of a chalkboard to most people is in the classroom. It serves as a great platform for education. Although it is a handy tool for learning and creativity, it can also be more than that. A single chalkboard can be beneficial for the home, the office, and even your business.
So take the chalkboard out of the classroom today and give it a new meaning! Here are top 10 creative uses for different types of chalkboards that you can try!
- Do you have a frameless rustic slate chalkboard?Its best use for this in the home is to hang it in an area as a sign or reminder. At home, the rustic chalkboard is hanging at the porch wall where it serves as a reminder for the kids to leave their boots and shoes outside before they go in.
- When it comes to the office, your bare office wall needs a little bit of chalkboard art, too! I have friends who use frameless chalkboards as a to-do list or a calendar of events. What better visual to have than a board you can see that checks off chores or a countdown to that big day? Twine give it a home feel for those professionals who need a little warmth in their office space.
- Are you an entrepreneur? You can use chalkboards for business, too. Having a lovely kickstand chalkboard sign before your customers come in can definitely put a smile on faces. How does “Come in where it’s warm and dry” sound if it’s raining or snowing outside? Or a witty, "Soup of the day: COFFEE!"- definitely a great call for a hot choco or coffee in your establishment. Your guests already know that you are serving something hot to comfort them, aside from your warm and friendly establishment.
- Here’s one great use of a wooden A-frame chalkboard! Using liquid chalk markers, your themed party can be much more fun with this chalkboard. It is a sturdy sign you can post at the entrance where your guests can see. Because of its solid wood frame, it can easily be spotted and difficult to displace. It is a great chalkboard to help guests when you need to point them to the direction of the food and drinks, and the name of the event - especially if there are multiple events happening at one area.
- Does your business have different discount promos and special offers every day? Why spend on print and waste paper. You can easily post a sidewalk sign outside using an A-frame chalkboard. For example, if your bakery is currently serving Rainbow Cake, an A-frame chalkboard is a great advertising and marketing strategy you can use. Using different colors of liquid chalk markers, you can draw a colorful Rainbow Cake and other chalkboard art ideas to promote your product. If you have a particularly slow day during the week, this signboard is a great way to alert passers-by that every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday for example. It helps give your business the foot traffic plus brings a smile to those craving for tacos on a Tuesday!
- A rustic chalkboard calendar is a stunning home or office decor that is functional all the same. Whether you are a busy full-time mom who's got a million things to do or an entrepreneur who needs to keep track of your business, the chalkboard calendar is perfect for you. You can express your creativity while meeting your deadlines and getting your to-do list done!
- At home, you can have chalkboard home decor to brighten your living space. You can use a rustic slate chalkboard as personal chalkboard art. For instance, each room in the household can have their own name outside. Do you want to make it even more personal? If you’re artistic, you can actually draw their faces on the chalkboard frames!
- You can use the rustic porcelain steel chalkboard as a menu chalkboard for your business, as well. When customers sit down at your tables, they already have the specials in front of them. There is no need to call anyone over for the menu. They just need to call you when they are ready to order! It saves you time from having to come back and forth. It gives you time to do other things. And it lowers the customer’s waiting time when they are really, really hungry.
- If you’re a busy professional or simply someone who needs a list to get things done efficiently, having a little reminder or to-do list on your desk can make a difference. Do you have a big presentation coming up? Write down “It’s Your Day Today!” with liquid chalk markers for motivation! Writing down quotes from your favorite inspirational author is also a brilliant way to inspire you at work.
- Lastly, if you have a slate kickstand chalkboard, then you’re in luck! Because it is made from real natural slate, it has a different texture that can make any event rustic or elegant. It is an awesome way to signify table numbers, thoughts of the day, a menu chalkboard and even memorable quotes. It is a perfect rustic wedding decoration, too. Your kickstand chalkboard can serve as your #hashtag notice for guests so they can post pictures of your wedding from their point of view. Which means you will have tons of photos which equal tons of memories!
