20 Chalkboard Walls and Decors in the Living Room

Add a fun feature in the living room through chalk boards.

For most of us, chalkboards are used in school but it can also actually be used as a home decor. Many home interiors are being decorated with such. Most of the time, it is used in the dining room or kitchen to write reminders like grocery lists or even recipes. But others would have it in the living room or bedroom and this becomes an exciting element in the interior especially for the kids.

But not just kids love this because even adults who like to draw also love it too. What is good about chalkboards is that you can change the drawings on it anytime you like and whenever you add a new drawing, it is like you are updating the design of your space. Cool, right? Now, we have collated 20 living rooms that have chalkboard walls or have chalkboard decors in it. For sure, you will end up inspired after seeing this list. Scroll down and take a look.

With the design of this living room, I could say that the rest of the house is as luxurious as this but what toned down its sophistication is that chalkboard wall on the backdrop of the chairs.

These are all cute, right? Well, there are different ways that you can use a chalkboard wall for your home and adding it in the living room is just one way to do it. What is good about using chalkboards is that you can change what is written on it from time to time and this will be very useful especially for special occasions. I like most of the living rooms above but of all, I find the Scandinavian living room really nice. How about you? Pick a favorite and tell us about it in the comment section below.
