While you might think that pegboards are only good for garages and stores, they’re actually becoming more and more popular in homes around the world.

In this article, we want to give you some original ways you can make the most of these fantastic organizers. They’re perfect for any home, office or garage.

Organize your life with pegboards

Getting your home in order can be a huge challenge, especially if you have a lot of stuff, and not everything has its place. If you’re not sure where to start, we recommend buying some of these practical pegboards. Believe us when we say that they’ll make your life so much easier. Take a look at the following ideas, and start using them in your home.

1. Pegboards – closets or dressing rooms

Do you have a mountain of necklaces, earrings, scarves, and gloves? As you’ve probably already noticed, keeping them in boxes isn’t always the best way to store them. First, because you end up having to buy huge boxes, second, because everything instantly gets tangled, and finally because it’s hard to keep track of what you actually have.

To avoid all that, simply hang pegboards in your dressing room or on your closet door. Then, simply add some hooks, and you’re done. You can keep all your jewelry and accessories neatly organized, and ready whenever you need them.

2. Kitchens

Modern kitchens aren’t generally known for being all that big, but if you love cooking and you use a lot of utensils on a daily basis, pegboards are a great way to keep them organized.

It’s important to remember that because your utensils will be out in the open, you might find they get dirty more easily. However, the good thing is that you’ll have everything within reach right when you need it. You can hang ladles, pots, graters, can openers – anything that has a handle or a hole you can hang it from.

3. Pegboards – entrance halls

If you’re one of those people that gets in from work, throws everything on the couch and instantly loses your keys, bag, umbrella, or your other daily essentials, this is the idea for you. Install one or two pegboards on the wall of your entrance hall (ideally the one closest to the door) and use it to hang all your belongings when you get in from work.

That way, next time you go out, you’ll know exactly where everything is, and you won’t have to waste time looking for things.

4. Desks

Do you work from home and have your own home office space? Congratulations! Sometimes, however, this can be a bit of a double-edged sword. Not having a boss around to force you to tidy your desk can lead you to become less productive than usual.

Pegboards are the ideal solution. You can easily install them on the wall next to your desk, and use them to hang all kinds of different things.

5. Pegboards – gardens or terraces

If you like spending time out in the garden tending to your plants, a pegboard could be a great way to keep your gardening tools organized. That way, any time you want to weed, prune or water your garden, you won’t have to spend hours looking for the right tools.

You could also use your pegboard for storing DIY tools such as hammers and drills so that when you want to hang a painting or do some home repairs, everything you need will be right at your fingertips.

6. Living rooms

Hanging paintings and notes.

The ideas and suggestions we’ve shown you so far have been designed to help you keep your home neat and tidy. However, pegboards can also be used for another purpose: decorating.

Yes, you read that right. How would you feel about hanging your paintings and photo frames on a pegboard, rather than directly on your wall? That way, you’ll only need to make holes to hang the pegboard, rather than holes to hang each individual frame.

7. Pegboards – offices or businesses

Pegboards can be used to hang products in your store.

Depending on the types of products you have on sale, pegboards can be a great way to display stock in your store and show it off to your customers. For example, you could create a display with items from your new catalog, giving pride of place to anything you want to sell quickly. These could be items that are on sale or things you simply want to sell quickly.

And finally, you can also use pegboards to decorate for parties or events, such as birthdays, weddings or Christmas. How? Simply slot hooks into the holes and use it to display photos, gifts or even food.

There are so many ways you use pegboards in your home. Plus, you can buy whatever size you want, and decorate them exactly how you like them. Give them a go, and see how much tidier your home becomes.
