This $29 Kmart product will double your storage space

Make it yourself

We’re all looking for more space to store and display our stuff. The Kmart peg board takes an age-old design idea and flips it to bring it back in style, reinvent clean, creative storage with freshness and endless uses around the home.

The pegboard is a wonderful storage solution that has stood the test of time. Whilst traditionally used for tool storage and retail display, it has worked its way into our homes as a fun solution to storage for wall shelves in rooms ranging from home office to craft room, kitchen to kids’ room. The Kmart Australia version is all that ingenuity distilled into one little box – a little bit of Scandi home decor style and a whole lot of home love.

An affordable way to get your belongings off your flat surfaces and onto your wall, it has become a firm favourite of Kmart hack lovers, giving back so much space and bags of style.

Here are eight chic ways to style it up with inspiration from Kmart fans:

1. Scandi chic

Straight out of a Scandinavian storybook, this child’s room ticks all the boxes for design, inspiration and education. The pegboard shelves can all be moved around to create a changing scene.

2. Interactive fun

This clever Mum has solved the dilemma of toy storage vs interior design by creating a modern pegboard wall of Ostheimer toys which acts both as a colourful display and interactive play station. Genius!

3. Home office hub

Equal parts practical and pretty, this home office corner holds stationery supplies, motivational messages and a little bit of indoor garden love. Including hanging planters in your home is always a good idea.  

4. Colour and creativity

The owner of this Perth-based jewellery business has spread her creative wings with this colourful product display. The modularity of the Kmart pegboard means her showcase can change and evolve with the addition of new product – just as you could with items in your home!

5. Changing station

When you have something that’s too cute not to display, like this little onesie, make it a feature! This clever hack uses of the Kmart pegboard for a changing station above an IKEA chest of drawers gives new meaning to #outfitoftheday

6. Kitchen elevation

Painted black, this Kmart pegboard works in beautifully with the monochrome colour palette in this kitchen, disappearing into the wall without let function take precedence over form.

7. More is more

Whilst this is a showroom it provides great inspiration for how an entire wall can be given over to storage and display. Whether a collection of treasures or a gallery wall of artworks, fixing peg boards together en masse make a wonderful and flexible gallery space.

8. Storage, with benefits!

Perhaps this is a stretch in a storage story but we couldn’t resist including this delicious display to show you that if you take it out of your living room and into party mode, the #kmartstyling possibilities are endless 🍩💁🏻
