Pegboard Hangers

Pegboard Shelves

Pegboard shelves are one of the most innovative yet convenient ways to arrange things. Pegboard panels can be installed anywhere with a flat surface, so even if it's the back of a bedroom door, you can place a pegboard panel and use it to get more organized and add storage space in your room. Pegboards are normally used to hang things, so it's a common misconception that they can only be used for a limited number of items—the ones that can be hanged. This is far from the truth because pegboards can actually be used for almost anything. While the evenly spaced holes in the pegboard suggest that you can place hooks and pegs on them, manufacturers have come up with all kinds of items that help make pegboard organizing so much easier.

A Flexible Way to Place Shelves

Using pegboard shelves is a lot more convenient than using regular shelves.  Regular shelves usually come in the form of heavy furniture.  For instance, a regular bookshelf would take up so much space and is not as portable as you want it to be.  A regular cabinet with shelves and drawers poses the same problems. 

On the other hand, using the pegboard panel offers you more flexibility.  You can position the shelves the way you want to, and you don’t have to limit yourself to the way regular shelves are arranged.  Additionally, these shelves are easy to assemble and disassemble, so in case you change your mind, it is so much easier to adjust the shelves accordingly.  This flexibility is something you will never get with regular shelves.

Shelf Options

Pegboard shelves come in a variety of options because pegboard manufacturers know that homeowners have different tastes, needs, and preferences.  The shelves that would work in a garage wouldn’t work in a bedroom, and the shelves that you would use to display light materials wouldn’t be the same as the shelves you would use to display heavy ones.  Some shelves slope downwards, while others are just perpendicular to the pegboard.  Some are made of acrylic, while others are made using stainless steel.  Moreover, some pegboard shelves can be used to display items like DVDs, CDs, and cassette tapes, while others can be used to display books, stuffed animals, frames, and figurines. 

Regardless of what items you display in these shelves, it’s clear that there are many options to choose from and that choosing among these options will depend on many factors.

Tips You Should Keep in Mind During Installation

Here are some tips you can use in installing shelves in pegboards:

  • Make sure that you install the shelves properly especially if the items you’re displaying are heavy.

  • Use the appropriate shelf materials for whatever items you want to display.

  • You can drill holes into a regular wooden shelf to make the shelf an instant screwdriver holder.

  • You can arrange the shelves in a way that optimizes space and makes it easier for people to reach for things they need from the shelves.
