The 7 Most Popular Cornhole Board Designs

Cornhole boards can be made in just about any type of design that you can dream up. Whether you want your favorite photo or scenery or simply want to go with a basic stained wood design, there are tons of choices. 

However, if you just can’t seem to make up your mind, you can always look at some of the most popular choices out there. In this guide, we will break down the 7 most popular cornhole board designs to consider. 

Stained Wood Grain Designs

Why not keep it simple with a basic stained wood? These might be simple by design, but they are gorgeous. They use natural wood, paired with staining shades of your choices, and these elements really make the beauty of the wood stand out. 

A lot of people like this design because it’s both simple and classic. You don’t have to worry about coming up with pictures or graphics. It’s smooth and the surface is clean. While it is clean, it doesn’t look plain or boring. It has great rustic appeal and it happens to be one of the most popular selections when it comes to cornhole designs. 

The best part is you simply can’t go wrong here. Want to give a gift? Stained wood is perfect! Even if you don’t know the person’s preferences, this board is sleek and looks great. You can view all of our woodgrain cornhole boards to pick our your favorite one!

American Flag

Another popular choice is the American flag. People are also quite fond of American themes. The flag is the default American design, but you could also change it up - perhaps adding an eagle or another national symbol if you prefer. 

In most cases, American flag boards are painted flags, like a flag was laid straight across the board. While that is the typical selection, there are many different ways to style the American flag or any type of Americana theme. 

The board can be made to look distressed to give you a different visual appeal. You can also add rustic tones if you like. Some other common choices that we have seen include the following: 

  • Flag and eagle design
  • Flag skull design
  • Flag deer design
  • Star Spangled design
  • We the People design

In addition to the American flag, it has also become popular to use the flag with a thin blue line or thin red line emphasis to support police and fire or EMS workers as. Check out our American Flag Cornhole Boards page for more!

Sports Team Themed

When it comes to using a sports team theme, there are some limitations. In order to use specific logos, you are required to be licensed to do so. For that reason, many companies won’t use the official logo or mascot for cornhole boards. 

However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy a cornhole set that supports your favorite team! You can easily use team colors and team names to customize your board. For our full selection, you can visit our Sports Themed Cornhole Boards page.

Monograms

Next up is a popular choice that is great for gifts or weddings. Why not choose cornhole board designs that use names to add a little something extra to the board? With this type of design, you simply add a monogram design to stained wood. 

While rustic stained wood is the standard choice, you could potentially choose any color for the board, as well as for the monogram. There are many different options for designing the monogram, and you can view them all on our Wedding and Personalized Page.

All of this can be coordinated to your own style preferences and it will always be unique, even though it’s a popular design style. 

Beer or Drinking Themed

When people have cornhole boards out at gatherings, it’s often with a group of friends. Another popular design choice is a theme that uses either your favorite beer or perhaps your favorite drink. 

You will find common choices like Miller Lite or Coors Lite. Additionally, there are several different ways to incorporate a drinking theme with your board. Maybe you prefer Jack Daniels or margaritas. You can use those themes for your cornhole boards instead. 

Of course, you could also choose a tiki hut, a bar, or even a man-cave design for your set. Our most popular designs in this category are our Coors & Miller Cornhole Boards.

Scenic

Have you ever looked at a scene or wildlife and known it was picture-perfect? When you add something like this to cornhole board designs, you get to enjoy perfect scenery every time the cornhole boards come out. 

This could be a broad category. Perhaps you have a photo you’ve taken or acquired that stands out to you. You can use this scene to customize your board design and give yourself something totally unique. 

Harley Davidson

Finally, a Harley Davidson cornhole design could be another great choice. This is yet another design that can be styled in several different ways. You can choose to use a motorcycle or the classic Harley orange and black colors. 

You can choose what appeals to you overall and we can help make it happen.
