From elevated bed frames and hanging pan racks to bike lofts and ceiling shelves, there are an abundance of storage solutions for the ambitious homeowner. But if you’re looking for the simplest and most versatile option, pegboards can solve all your storage needs. An oldie but a goodie, pegboards have a long-standing reputation for easy tool storage in garages and sheds. If that’s the only place you’re utilizing them, however, then you’re missing out. Here are five other rooms where pegboards shine:
Whether it’s through the front or back door, your mudroom can set the tone for the rest of your house. When you have kids, pets, or just a lot of stuff, mudrooms can get easily overwhelmed and disorganized. Installing a simple pegboard ensures there’s a place for everything and everything in its place, from your kid’s backpack and your four-legged friend’s leash to your umbrellas, keys, and mail.
No matter how big your kitchen is, it just never seems to be quite big enough. If you’re tired of toppling Tupperware every time you open that cabinet by the stove and never being able to find the pizza cutter before the pie goes cold, pegboards in your kitchen are a recipe for success. Never rummage through a drawer again when you have your cutting boards, measuring cups, pots, pans, utensils, and rolling pins all in plain sight. Concerned your kitchen may feel cluttered? Install pegboards in your pantry instead for a storage solution that’s your secret.
“Out of sight, out of mind” is not the storage philosophy you want to live by, even when it comes to your closets. When you run out of hanger and floor space, what else are you supposed to do? Install a pegboard to conveniently—and beautifully—store and showcase your coats, hats, jewelry, pocketbooks, scarves, and more.
4. Craft Room
If you’re crafty enough to dedicate an entire room to it, your crafting tools and accessories deserve better treatment than being shoved into drawers. Keep your crafting supplies within reach and in top condition with a pegboard. It will accommodate naturally hanging items, like scissors, rolls of ribbon, and glue guns, and makes it easy to add shelves for things like paint and yarn and hanging baskets for brushes and knitting needles.
5. Home Gym
You want to break a sweat working out, not trying to organize your equipment and accessories. A pegboard makes hitting your home gym easier than ever before. While you do need to follow weight restriction guidelines when it comes to heavy equipment, pegboards are ideal for storing your jump rope, resistance bands, yoga mat, headphones, water bottle, and workout towel.
