3 Ways To Maximize Empty Walls

Beautiful can be useful, too!


If you only had very limited wall space, what would you rather do—fill it up with nice decals or put up something that has purpose? 

Although it would be nice to display framed art or a few statement pieces, it would be a waste if you aren't able to make the most of the vertical space. Yes, there's value in stunning decor but who said practical can't be creative? 

Check out these three easy ways you can make your walls multitask for you:

Magnetic Board

Stop ruining your walls from taping up notes and switch to magnetic boards instead. These can help you stick or replace important to-do lists easily. If you want to categorize tasks and reminders, try getting smaller panels and label each accordingly.

Chalkboard Planner

If you can't keep up with a pen and planner, try something more visual by creating a blackboard wall calendar. This is also a great way to track your kids' activities and planned appointments.

RL Tip: Veer away from the usual black and white by using alternate shades of blackboard paint.

Corkboard Walls

Instead of hanging up store-bought push-pin boards, consider taking the next step and covering an entire wall in cork. This type of wall treatment can act as a convenient spot to attach memos, a mood board, a gallery of family photos or a place where kids can display their latest doodles.
