Why choose a chalkboard over the more common white or smart board? While these writing surfaces are not that common in classroom and office settings anymore, they are still worth some consideration if you want a simple and easy-to-clean surface. Compared to advanced devices, blackboards don't have any complex features or settings to learn. Their durability also tends to surpass typical whiteboards with a lifespan of around 5 to 10 years with the proper care and maintenance. In most cases, all you need is some water and a cloth to keep the board clean. You can find many options for inexpensive chalk that come in different colors and sizes for better visibility.
