Pegboards used to only really be found in garages and sheds – as a functional way of organising tools – but they’ve now found their way into the house! People really are realising that they’re the perfect way to organise AND display accessories and other items in every room!
So – here’s some inspiration that I’m using to decide how to use them in my own house, and I hope they inspire you too!
POSITIVES OF USING PEGBOARDS IN YOUR HOME:
- Inexpensive storage
- You can create a personal look – painting them, adding different accessories etc…
- Versatile – uses all over the house
- Everything is to hand – easy to grab
NEGATIVES OF USING PEGBOARDS IN YOUR HOME:
- Everything is on display – so need to keep it tidy to look good
- More dusting to do!
So how can you use pegboards to be more organised, while making them look good enough for display?
The answer lies in the ideas and inspiration below, and I hope at least one of these options works in your home for how you live (because, let’s face it – we’re all different!).
Let’s go, shall we….
INSPIRATION FOR USING PEGBOARDS IN EVERY ROOM OF YOUR HOME…
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR THE UTILITY / LAUNDRY ROOM:
Love this – as you can have everything on one wall, Practical, functional, and pretty!
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR THE KITCHEN:
Get everything you need for cooking out and easy to reach –
Don’t forget the back of cupboard doors as well – as these are great ways to organise literally behind closed doors! – I’ve seen all sorts of things being organised like this, from measuring spoons to keys.
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR THE HOME OFFICE:
Display AND function coming together beautifully –
I LOVE this option for creating something that looks a bit different as well. I’d love adding some clipboards to this to get my work stuff organised! –
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR THE HALLWAY:
LOVE this idea for a narrow hallway – a great way to store the bike as well!
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR KIDS ROOMS:
For older kids, they love to display different things, and change things up all the time. This is a great option instead of a noticeboard – especially as you can add a few storage boxes and shelves etc… as well
And younger kids could use it for above a desk to do crafts, or for displaying various toys etc…
…and what about painting the board so it is colourful and fun? (I know this shows tools and more craft items, but I think the concept is very very cool for a kids room as well!)
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR BEDROOMS:
Perfect idea for a walk in wardrobe, as the back of the door is often overlooked. It could instead be used for a whole lot of organisation! I’d use this for my accessories so I can grab the finishing touch for my outfits!
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR CRAFT ROOMS:
Beautiful craft room inspiration –
And, who wouldn’t want to work with this board above them!
Another great idea I have used in a previous home office design is to frame the pegboard – makes it a real piece of art, don’t you think!
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR LIVING ROOMS:
Doesn’t this make a beautiful display? I love the idea that you can change this around as the seasons change, and also that there would be less drilling so less holes in the wall than hanging it all directly on the wall or adding shelves there as well…
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR THE BATHROOM:
I love the idea of using a pegboard to organise makeup and toiletries you need each day. I would organise these in order so that I knew what to do in what order (perfect when trying to add a new beauty regime into the morning routine) –
PEGBOARD IDEAS FOR THE GARAGE:
A lot of us have old kitchen cabinets or similar in our garage for storage – and so this is the perfect way to make them look good AND be functional. I love the idea of using a pegboard as a splash back!
And this is just amazing! Imagine how hard it would be to find one of these tools if they were all in a box somewhere… this way you can see them all at a glance
TIP – Drawing around these tools would mean that you could see what goes where. Especially useful if you have a few off the wall at the same time.
And lastly – why leave pegboards just to the walls? This is a great idea to be able to add the functionality without taking up wall space.
WHY NOT TRY SOME OF THESE IN YOUR OWN HOME? CREATING A PEGBOARD CAN BE A QUICK DIY PROJECT THAT COULD MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE…
