Chalkboard wall - Once you paint with chalk board paint, can you ever paint over it again?

No worries about committing to a dark color since you can paint over it.
Dark colors actually expand spaces, the dark wall in that kitchen blew out that side and expanded it visually. The paint is by Benjamin Moore, they can assist you with required primer incase you ever decide to repaint. We paint at least one wall dark in every project.

Hi. Missed this question. The width varies due to cabinet depth at the right side from 11' at the pantry, 12' at the Subzero and 13' between.

How do you paint clean edges when you are wall painting? I want this accent wall.

This is chalkboard paint used to paint the wall. If you tape off your sidewalls/trim/baseboards with painters tape (blue tape), you should be fine.

Use drop cloths on the floor and over your big pieces of furniture, and try and keep your paint brush clean (meaning no drips down the side as you "cut in" or paint around the trim.

Good luck!

As someone who as already attempted a chalkboard accent wall, I speak from personal failure with painters tape, so I have gathered a few improved tips on how to get a clean line for your wall color. One technique still utilizes blue painters tape to mask the edges. Mask a straight line with the tape, but allow a 1/8"-1/16" gap between the wall to be painted and the painters tape. With a cauking gun and paintable cauk, rub a thin film from the tape into the corner of the wall to be painted and let dry before painting. If this sounds too labor intensive, another technique is to cut the paint edge with a stiff bristle brush before using the roller. Cut in the paint edge an inch or two, then go for the roller. Happy painting!

That floor looks like a maple plank floor, although it could be a different species with an opaque stain applied to it. Any flooring store will have samples that resemble this one.

I have been intrested some in the wood look like tiles...in the photo, it almost seems like there are darker grout lines in between the planks, so I thought it could possibly be that type of flooring. I think the idea is great with the wood look tile idea, but getting the grout color just right is what could make or break the look. Regardless of what it is, I love when the floors are either a bit lighter or darker (espresso) than the normal browner tones most homes have installed.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

As does this chalkboard wall.
So many interesting pieces here: highly personal (chalkboard), bold black/contrast, mix of charm (beadboard doors) and modern elements
I love the dark chalkboard wall contrasting against the white kitchen.
Kit Pollard added this to 15 Popular Design Trends on Houzz
11. Chalkboard paint. It's fun, especially for kids, but you're into it in adult spaces as well.
Kit Pollard added this to Really Organized Kitchens
This island is perfectly placed for eating, hanging out, or additional help. Sometimes you just need the extra counter space. Plus, I love that wall!
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Twelve Creative Ways To Decorate With Message Boards
This family must have a lot to say! The entire space is a great example of the power of a black and white color palette in design, softened just slightly by the pale wood floors. I would enjoy eating a sandwich sitting at this island, while reading through the notes on the wall!
Lily Gahagan added this to Grown-Up Ideas for Chalkboard Paint
Even if you love the look of a black wall, it can be a little nerve-wracking to take the plunge and paint your walls in the non-color. Dark chalkboard gray feels much more approachable, and if it's too dark, you can always cure it with lots of chalk.
Becky Harris added this to Modernizing Cottage Style
Cottage kitchens are often tiny and require clever storage solutions. This designer has kept things simple with the black-and white palette, then allowed for some fun with the chalkboard wall.
Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: The Kitchen
10. Write on the wall. Can't find pen and paper to write a chores or grocery list? Slather an entire wall with chalkboard paint and never forget again.More:How to Remodel Your KitchenDream Kitchen Must-Haves23 Inspiring Real-Life Kitchens
Becky Harris added this to 5 Smashing Black and White Homes
Chalkboard paint provides an ever-changing backdrop to the cottage kitchen. See the rest of this home
Cottage Key elements: The large chalkboard wall is family friendly, casually arranged open shelves make things easygoing, and beadboard is a cottage classic.

I like the finish because it is unique and you can use it on a Dailey basis. The cost is low because it is just chalk board paint. I would use this in a kitchen to mark down important dates or in a child's play area or bedroom so they could color on the walls. Cons would be that it doesn't look professional or elegant to company but who cares.
