Here are 7 awesome laundry room pegboard ideas to turn a room no one wants to enter into a time-saving oasis.
Pegboard and pegboard accessories are an amazing way to organize your space. They can be used to store everything from clothes to detergents and cleaners. But first if you don't have a pegboard in your laundry room, you'll need to...
Install Pegboard on the Wall
Here is a a great Youtube video "How to Install Pegboard" on hanging pegboard. If you are going to hang pegboard we recommend using white 1/4" hole pegboard (which is the most common these days) because most heavy-duty hooks and baskets work best with this size hole. Our blog post "7 Garage Pegboard Ideas for Getting Organized!" goes into great detail on the pros and cons of metal vs wood pegboard and where you can buy it.
Hang your Laundry Using Pegboard Hooks and Hangers
If you have a lot of heavy items, like jeans or jackets that you don't want to put in the dryer, then we recommend using heavy-duty pegboard hooks that are available in many sizes. These will hold up better than cheap hooks that bend with the weight of wet clothes. You can use plastic hangers with longer hooks to hang multiple items to dry and save space.
Pegboard Shelves for Supply Storage
Put up pegboard shelves to store cleaning supplies and other items that you use often in your laundry room. The shelves can be used for storing detergent, fabric softener, and other items that you need to have handy when doing laundry but don't want cluttering up your countertops or floor space in the room where they are stored.
The pegboard shelves make it easy to reach what's needed and not have a bunch of bottles you have to rummage through under the sink.
You can put some wire baskets under the shelves that hold clothespins or small stain removal bottles. Keep everything within arm’s length but high enough to keep them out of the reach of childred.
Create an Ironing Station
Hanging up your ironing board on the pegboard with curved hooks will make it easier to organize all of your clothes in one place. Add a shelf next to the iron where you can store an extra spray bottle or can of wrinkle remover for quick and easy access, so that there's no need to go searching through cluttered drawers every time!
Use Pegboard to Store Cleaning Tools
We know your laundry room is often more than just a place for just cleaning clothes. The pegboard can also hang up brooms, dustpans, mops, and other items that you use to keep your home clean. You can also hang up a pegboard with hooks and store cleaning supplies like dustpans or scrubbing brushes. They will be to easy see when needed and not piled up on the floor.
Never Lose Keys Again with Pegboard Hooks
If your laundry room is adjacent to your garage, pegboard hooks are a great way to organize and keep your essentials close at hand. Hang one of these handy devices near the door for your keys or the dog leash.
More Than Just Laundry Room Pegboard Ideas
As you continue to add pegboard throughout the house - your pantry, craft room, or garage, the key to success is using the right sized hook or high-quality pegboard accessories so they can hold your items without slipping off; they will last for years to come.
