They are replaced by whiteboards which are just as efficient if not even more and that also allow you to be less messy and more practical. These clean and simple whiteboards can be easily integrated into your home’s décor. There are lots of methods for doing that and you can include them in any room. Here are a few examples.

A bedroom could also benefit from the presence of a whiteboard, especially if it’s a teen of kid’s room. It can be helpful for organizing your time schedule, putting down all the things you want to do, the titles of the movies you’d like to see, write down inspirational messages or simply doodle something to cheer up the atmosphere.

A mudroom or hallway could also benefit from the presence of a whiteboard. It can be a small one, perfect for writing down messages for other persons or for writing down a set of rules, warnings, lists of things you have to do immediately after you get home or a simple welcome for the guests.

Of course, there’s one more place where a whiteboard would be very useful and it’s the office. In a home office you can either have a whiteboard mounted on a wall or you can be a little more creative. For example, you can use the whiteboard as a top for your desk. This will allow you to better organize your thoughts and will give you a space where you can write and erase, calculate things and organize your ideas.
