From mood board-inspired styles to pegboards-turned-spice racks, here’s what we found.
1. Go for a wall-mounted office organizer
Why cramp up your desk with bulky office organizers when you can create a clean-lined pegboard display instead? Take a cue from Sienna and Javod’s San Jose home office and mount a pegboard above your desk to hang your workspace essentials in style.
2. Pegboard shelves FTW
If you haven’t heard of pegboard shelves, now’s the time to smarten up. Perfect for people looking to forge a salon-style display without covering their walls in holes, you can DIY your own with instructions from Mandi at Vintage Revivals, and show off everything from art to houseplants, just like we saw on @vintagerevivals IG.
3. Create a colorful pegboard display
A little color can go a long way on a pegboard. Case in point: Natalie and Scot Jarvis’ home workspace in Melbourne, Australia, that’s clad in bright green and blue pegboards for hanging neon lights, art, and other office supplies.
4. Make a kitchen cabinet pegboard
Searching for a stylish way to free up some much-needed kitchen space? Turn a blank pegboard into a full-blown storage cabinet by covering it in lid racks, magnetic knife holders, and wire baskets, and hanging it on your kitchen wall, just like we saw on Kitchn.
5. Hang miscellaneous stuff pegboard-style
Who needs a messy junk drawer when you can hang your random tools pegboard-style? Follow in Danielle Suppa and Mark James’ footsteps and employ a pegboard and hooks to forge your very own organizational wall for stashing hammers, scissors, sewing supplies, and more—no drawer necessary!
6. Use a pegboard for a spice rack
Spice racks: Can’t live without ’em, but never seem to have enough room in your kitchen to put one. Do yourself a favor and hang a spice rack, floating shelf, and hooks on a pegboard and mount on a kitchen wall to score room for stashing spices, olive oil, and more, just like we saw on Kitchn.
7. Use a pegboard in place of a toolbox
Forget your boring old toolbox—tool pegboards are so much better. Not only can you use a pegboard to organize all of your go-to tools in one easy to access place, like the one we spotted in Melanie Abrantes’ design workshop, they look pretty cool, too.
8. Create a pretty pegboard display
Nothing makes a workstation more welcoming than a nice, pastel-colored pegboard. Pair a pegboard in a pretty color with a coordinating desk setup, like the pale pink and purple workspace we spotted from @little_lucciola, to create an uplifting home office scene.
9. Make a makeshift coffee station
Dreaming of a mini espresso bar in your kitchen but lacking the countertop space? Turns out you can forge your very own wall-mounted coffee station, like we saw on Kitchn, with nothing more than a pegboard, hooks, and a floating shelf.
10. Sort your craft room with a pegboard
No creative space would be complete without some well-organized craft supplies. A pegboard offers the perfect place to hang up ribbon, scissors, rulers, sewing frames, and more, just like we saw in Katy and Jule’s London office.
11. Use a pegboard as a pantry
No room for a proper pantry in your tiny kitchen? No problem. Mount a pegboard to your kitchen wall and hang some wire baskets or file holders with hooks and voila: you’ve got a place to stash cutting boards, spices, and produce, just like we saw on Kitchn.
12. Store pots and pans on a pegboard
Why cram all of your bulky pots and pans in a kitchen cabinet when you can hang them all in one, easy-to-reach space? When mounted securely, an oversized pegboard, like the one we spotted in Apartment Therapy House Tour editor Adrienne Breaux’s New Orleans kitchen, provides plenty of space for hanging heavy-duty skillets, saucepans, and more.
13. Turn a pegboard into an herb garden
Green thumbs rejoice: You can create your very own indoor herb garden, no matter how small your space is. Thanks to this clever tutorial on Kitchn, we know that all you need is a pegboard, S-hooks, and some hanging planters to forge a wall-mounted herb garden that won’t take up an inch of counter space.
14. Create an artful pegboard
Believe it or not, a pegboard can double as a work of art—it just takes a little creativity. Paint your own pegboard in some eye-catching colors and shapes, and hang it prominently in your living room, just like we saw on @misel_admc.
15. Make a command center
Searching for a space-savvy way to forge a workspace at home? A pegboard with hooks, storage baskets, and shelves can moonlight as a wall-mounted desk-slash-standup-workstation, like we saw on Kitchn.
