8. Chalk board for notes: the practical kitchen helper

Do you want to give your imagination free rein today? Do you then see black and white on your kitchen walls, cupboards or even chairs? Did you already guessed it? Right, the slate, and it comes in many other colors, not just black and white.

Chalk boards and their dust in the classroom are a thing of the past and have been replaced by the dry-erase white board. The whiteboards are easier to clean, but they can not beat the old version with its old-school aesthetic. The wall panels are a trendy and striking idea for your home design. Especially in the kitchen, they offer practical solutions.

Here are a few tips on how to integrate a chalk board into your home design:

Let's start with the fact that, after a long time of use, the board may become somewhat confusing over time. It's easy to reduce this effect.

Wring the cloth and wipe the chalk board, always in the same direction.
