Ideas for a Peg Board in a Garage


Organize your garage with pegboard, pegboard hooks and pegboard baskets. Pegboard has small holes, allowing you to select specific areas for each hook or basket, which ensures you have ample room on the pegboard for each item. Installing pegboard allows you to remove clutter from your garage while organizing it.

Small Items

  • Install pegboard on the wall behind your workbench, and purchase pegboard baskets to organize small items. Place nuts, bolts, screws and other small items you store in your garage in the pegboard baskets. Designate a basket for each item, and label it by writing on the basket with marker.

Medium-size Items

  • Organize your medium-size items on your pegboard with pegboard hooks. Place the hooks on the pegboard, and hang your item, which works well for hand tools, small shovels and other items you use on a regular basis.

Under Benches

  • Install pegboard and pegboard hooks on the underside of your workbench. Sit on the floor, looking up at the underside of the workbench, and secure the pegboard to the bench with screws and a drill. Place hooks on the pegboard to hold items. Place corded items--with the cord wrapped up--on the hook under the workbench. This option keeps your tools and items within reach while working on a project.


  • Install pegboard on the ceiling in your garage to organize and keep large items off the floor. Purchase a variety of different size pegboard hooks, and place them on the pegboard. Hang large items you store in your garage on the ceiling -- for example, your bicycles, ladders and brooms to maximize your floor space in your garage and keep your items within reach and view.


  • Install a small pegboard in your garage to organize and store your keys. Purchase ample hooks, ensuring you have a hook for each key you wish to store on your pegboard. Instead of labeling your keys, color-code them -- for example, red is the house key. Paint the colors on the pegboard directly behind where the key hangs to prevent strangers from knowing which key is which.
