1. On an island

Look! It’s an island covered with a pegboard for even more functionality! Perhaps the smartest idea here, though, is to hang baskets from the board. This way, ingredients and smaller tools are always at the ready.

2. Above a breakfast table

This super-sweet pastel setup just goes to show that less can be more. It’s not overloaded with stuff, and that makes it a great fixture for over a small breakfast table. Think about it — you wouldn’t want to sit under a jumble of pots and pans, would you? But because this guy just has just around a dozen small items, it feels totally minimal.

3. Oversized!

An updated and surprising take on the pegboard, this one features oversized holes, which hold sturdy pegs that can, in turn, support small shelves. The holes that don’t have pegs end up creating some sort of cute polka-dot wallpaper effect.

4. Over a drink station

There is so much storage in this single photo! Look at all that stuff on the shelves under the coffee machine and Vitamix! And then all that stuff on the pegboard. It even has a magnetic knife block. This one little nook is basically a complete kitchen — minus the sink.
