Pegboards and slatwalls are a great storage option because they make your items easy to find and grab. If you have items that you use every day or you struggle to keep drawers and bins organized, a slatwall or pegboard might be the perfect storage solution. Read on to find out what you can do with them in your home.
About pegboards and slatwalls
Slatwall panels cover a section of wall and are usually found in the garage. You use the space between slats to install hooks, shelves, bins, and other small item holders. Not only are slatwall panels useful for storing items you want easy access to, they are also a simple, attractive way to upgrade your unfinished garage walls.
Pegboards are similar to slatwalls, except that you use their holes to install hooks and other storage options and pegboards are often used all over the house.
Use a pegboard or slatwall panel to store tools above your workbench or anywhere in the garage. As long as you have sturdy racks and hooks, you’re not limited to small items. You can store ladders, rakes, and shovels.
To make the best use of the wall space, figure out in advance what tools you want to store where and install your hooks, bins, and shelves accordingly. With a pegboard, you can even trace some tools with a permanent marker to create a visual reminder of where they go.
The garbage slatwall or pegboard is also a good place for storing sports and outdoor equipment – everything from kayak paddles to tennis rackets to bicycles.
One common way to use a pegboard in the kitchen is to add hooks and hang up frequently used pots, pans, cooking utensils, and oven mitts. This is another situation where tracing items is great for keeping the pegboard organized. You can also put a pegboard in your pantry and use it for spice racks and vegetable bins.
Pegboard storage is an ideal solution for a child who struggles with organization or frequently loses things. When they have a pegboard in their room, their most important items are always in plain sight.
Add hooks to the pegboard for backpacks, sports bags, and jackets. Add shelves and bins for toys and school supplies. Put labels on bins and shelves or the pegboard itself to make the process of putting things away even easier.
Pegboards are in style and many homeowners are using them just because they like the modern, utilitarian look. To give this trend a try, add some sleek, simple shelves to your pegboard and use them to store photographs, art, plants, and other decorative items.
