More than that, a chalkboard backsplash is like a canvas, which allows creating any art and notes that you want. This way you personalize the space much more and it becomes more original. Your kids will be happy to chalk on the backsplash while you are cooking and you can chalk down a recipe on it, too. To give yourself and your family more space for creativity, go for a whole chalkboard wall, not just a backsplash.

A chalkboard backsplash isn’t expensive, it can be renovated as often as you need, and it’s a great idea for rentals – you can repaint it easily. You may attach any holders and shelves to the chalkboard surfaces while drilling tiles to attach a shelf is very hard.
