4 Ways to Make the Most of Tiny Spaces

Lay out the cookware on the floor, or on a large table, to help determine what size pegboard you need (pegboards typically come in 2-by-4-feet, 4-by-8-feet and 4-by-4-feet pieces). Secure the wood to the wall using screws and anchors placed every 6 to 8 inches along the perimeter of the wall. Paint the perforated wood the same color as the wall. Scheer recommends high-gloss paint for a clean, wipeable finish. Hang items with pegboard hooks. "I used Diamond Life Gear's 5/8-inch curved hook for pots and pans and the 1.5-inch curved hooks for lids—two on the bottom of the lid, one on the top to stabilize," she says. Adhere small rubber feet, which act as little bumpers for the pot-and-pan edges to land on.
