Getting Organized With Pegboard

Getting Organized With Pegboard When it comes to getting your home organized, there are tons of tools available to help make that happen. Shelving, cabinets, and storage bins are all great ways to help get everything in order, but one tool you might not want to overlook is pegboard.

Pegboard is awesomely versatile. You can use pegboard to cover an entire wall of a room or just a small area. It can be used in just about any room of the house and it’s easy to grab some paint and make it match your decor. You can use it to store all sorts of things and it’s easy to arrange things on it any way you’d like. And best of all, pegboard is fairly inexpensive and can easily be found at stores like Home Depot or Lowe’s. Once you have some pegboard, all you need are some pegs, hooks, or baskets that attach with hooks and you’ve got an instant storage solution.

Want to try using pegboard in your home? Here are a few ideas to help you get started!

Home Workspaces

Whether you’re organizing a home office, a craft room, or a work area in the basement or garage, pegboard is a very popular tool to help stay organized. Since baskets and hooks work perfectly with pegboard, you have endless opportunities to keep all of your tools and other necessities organized and easy to access when you need them.


Need some extra storage space in a bedroom, but don’t have room next to the bed for a nightstand? Why not paint the pegboard and turn it into a faux headboard? That way, you’ll have an easy way to use hooks, baskets, and floating shelves to create extra storage space above your bed. Here’s a very popular example of how this can be done.


When people come inside, the first thing they want to do is take off their coat or jacket and put their things down. You can always use pegboard to create a place to hang coats, scarves, purses, and keys instead of using a typical coat rack or wall hooks.


If you have a lot of large pots and pans, you know how hard it can be to keep them all organized in a cupboard. Many people like to use pegboards to create a wall-mounted pot rack so all of those pots and pans will be out of the way, freeing up space in cupboards and making the pots and pans easier to access. Or if you have other kitchen utensils you use frequently, you can always hang those from your pegboard, too, so they’ll always be easy to grab whenever you need them.

Organizing Cupboards

Since pegboard can easily be cut down to fit different sizes, it can be a great way to line the inside of a cupboard door or along the back or sides of the inside of the cupboard. This way, you can use hooks to hang things on and keep the inside of the cupboard a little more organized.

Jewelry and Accessory Storage

Jewelry and sunglasses can both be kind of awkward to store. If you have a lot of long necklaces, pegboard is perfect for keeping all of them organized and preventing them from getting all tangled up. Or if you have a collection of sunglasses, you can always use hooks or pegs to create an excellent place to store all of your stylish shades.

These are just a few of the ways you might want to consider using pegboard. Since it’s so versatile, there are endless possibilities for how it can be used. Use your imagination and you might be surprised by how many ideas you could come up with to use it.
