Tips to Use Pegboards in Home Organization

Pegboards are a great way to get organized. They’re inexpensive, easy to install, and can be customized for any space. All you just need are some pegboard panels, hooks, screws, and nails.

You’ll never have to worry about finding what you need again. They can be used to store pots and pans, dishware, spices, and more. You can also use them to organize your tools in the garage or workshop. 

With resin pegboards, you’ll be able to create an organized space in no time at all. Pegboards provide easy access to all of your daily used items. They’re also perfect for displaying family photos or artwork. 

We’ve compiled some tips that will help you get the most out of pegboard organization in your home.

  • Lock Hooks With Glue

While installing hooks inside the holes of the pegboard, you should lock them with glue to avoid any loose hooks that can cause them to fall and potentially break the item you hung on them.

  • Spacers and Wall Anchors

You should always put your spacers behind your screws instead of directly putting nuts. This can help prevent the pegboard from coming loose or falling and causing a mess. You should also use wall anchors for hooks or nails that are longer and might go into the wall or are just loose for the pegboard holes.

  • Choose the Right Pegboard

Choose the right pegboard according to the area you have for hanging the pegboard, the material of the pegboard according to your need, and the size of the pegboard. That way, you don’t have to go through the extra hassle of adding extensions or removing a part of the pegboard.

  • Use Pegboard Extensions

If you face the issue of the pegboard being too small in height or width or both for the area you want to install it in, you can always use pegboard extensions. These will help you increase space on any side of the pegboard you want without any extra effort of getting a new pegboard and cutting it.

  • Specialized Hangers

You can get specialized hangers for hanging heavy objects or objects with a very specific shape that are impossible to hang on. This way you can make sure no object is in an awkward position on your pegboard. 

  • Matching Paint

You can match the pegboard according to the color of your room. There are different materials available like metal, cardboard, and wood, etc. You can use the one that is the closest to your choice and can fit the environment of your room nicely.

  • Custom Shelves

You can do custom shelves on your pegboard which can include different kinds of brackets and ledges to form a shape according to your need. You can use different materials including steel, wood, or maybe glass. 

  • Framed pegboards

You can also frame your pegboard with metal or wood to give it a clean finish. You can also use the inside of a cabinet door as a frame on which you can install your pegboard or you can install it with a drawer mechanism inside a box for easier access.

These tips will help you decide where and how to place pegboards, what tools work best with them, and more.
