People immediately think about message boards whenever they hear the word “corkboard”. However, if we only think out of the box, we will find that there are so many uses for corks and corkboards inside our homes or at the garden. Here are some unique ideas to try the next time you have some spare corkboard lying around:
Use corkboard as headboard. This is perfect for kids and teens who like to organize and personalize their stuff. What you can do is to frame it or put borders and leave it as it is, or wrap it with an interestingly-patterned paper or fabric to match the overall theme of the bedroom.
Use it as an accessory holder. Put little hooks instead of pins, and you can hang accessories such as scarves, sunglasses, small pouches, neckties, or even belts. You may also use it as a jewelry board or as a key holder.
Use it as an insulator. Corks have great insulating properties and would make practical ceilings for attics during hot summer days. If you have a music room or a family theater, you can also use corkboards to soundproof your multimedia room.
Use corkboard sheets as mats. If your tables is made with glass or any other scratch or stain-sensitive materials, having cork sheet mats would protect your surface from being damaged by vases, cups, figurines or porcelains. You may also use it as trays to line your accent tables.
Use it on the surface of your kitchen cabinets. Cork makes for a unique, organic look on your kitchen cabinets. It could also double as recipe or grocery list board with the aid of some pins and post-its.
