It’s an open secret that walls hold a lot of promise whether you’re looking to keep a space organized or if you simply want to display photos and collections. Homeowners have come up with tons of solutions—from wall-mounted shelves and overhead cabinets to hooks and rods—name it, many of us have surely tried it.

Aside from these tried-and-tested implements, many are also starting to work with pegboards to keep the different areas at home spic-and-span. These wall wonders not only help keep your essentials in place, it can also double as an accent piece depending on how you spruce it up. If you’re looking for your next home improvement project, here are reasons why a pegboard in the kitchen should be on top of your list:

1. As a sleek organizer

 

A wooden pegboard can help you define your cooking space. Install it on an empty wall by the sink and liven it up with your favorite mugs, a jar of utensils, and even a mini bowl of fruits. To be able to showcase your favorite cups, secure hooks or wooden pegs inside the holes. Make sure it can hold the weight of the item you wish to display.

RL Tip: Personalize your wall by hanging a tiny lamp or a calendar.

2. As a functional decor

 

While we all love the cute, charming, and versatile chalkboard wall, it has the tendency to look out of place in the kitchen. Make a statement by crafting a functional combo—a chalkboard and pegboard in one. Ask help from your trusted carpenter and see if you can work with plywood or salvaged wood as a border for this project. Once your board is done, take a cue from the photo above and neatly line up the utensils and pans you use daily. A few hooks can hold cups, mini canisters of ingredients, and tiny bins. Personalize your board with colorful magnets.

3. As a coffee, tea, or baking station

 

Whether you're a tea fanatic, a coffee addict, or a baking maven—you would want to have a lovely corner where all your must-haves are kept in place. If space is an issue, a trusty pegboard can help you. With a few hooks, wooden planks, and your DIY skills, craft a station of your choice. Jars of coffee or cans of teabags can occupy a corner while your saucers can take up another plank. Wooden pegs or metal hooks can help you display your favorite mugs. Those who love baking can also showcase their favorite recipe books—just make sure the board can hold the weight.

4. As a mini pantry

 

Many homeowners would agree when we say that cooking is easier if you have the ingredients and condiments in one spot. Achieve this by turning your pegboard into a makeshift pantry. With a couple of hooks, fabric baskets, and heavy duty clips—you can gather jars of powdered ingredients, spices, herbs, and your favorite recipes in one corner for easy access. A floating shelf can hold your herbs and spices, while the rightmost corner can showcase your collected recipes. A bottle turned into a vase can serve as decor, too.

5. As a focal point of your vignette

 

If your kitchen needs a bit of an upgrade, the pegboard can serve as your canvas. Purchase wooden pegs (available in craft stores) and use it to hold mini planks of wood and coasters that can serve as decor. Showcase potted plants, succulents, and other vintage cooking essentials to give it a rustic, old-world charm. With your curated board as a focal point, you'll surely be inspired to whip up more magical dishes.

RL Tip: Can't wait to start your pegboard project? These must-haves are available in craft stores and home depots. You can also visit Typo in Greenbelt 5, Makati City for options. If you're planning to go DIY all the way, you can drill holes in a medium-density fibreboard (available in hardware stores) to craft your own. It's best to consult with a carpenter to avoid mistakes and extra costs.
