Sizing and Styles

It is important to correctly assess the availability of mounting space or storage when choosing what size Chalkboard or Whiteboard to order.

Wall Mounted Chalkboards and Fixed Whiteboards - Decide which wall you plan to mount your chalkboard or whiteboard on. Carefully, measure the space. You also want to make sure you have adequate space in front of the whiteboard to move about as you use your chalkboard or whiteboard. It is important to measure and not estimate the size you need.

Freestanding Easel Chalkboards and Rolling Whiteboards – Freestanding whiteboards are a great solution for those who do not have wall space available to mount a board or those who require a portable solution. Consider carefully the amount of floor space you have available before choosing your floor-standing chalkboard or whiteboard.
