Hello World! Welcome Friends! When it comes to making good use of wall-space, pegboards and gridwalls are the two top choices among many retailers. They’re cheap and easy to install, and their versatility makes them perfect for filling up the empty spaces between shelves and cabinets. Moreover, displaying items one by one on a grid or pegboard captures the eye of the customer more than stacking them on a shelf.
That said, vertical wall organizers have their ups and downs, which means that, while they can often be used interchangeably, it’s usually best to keep your type of business in mind when making your selection.
If yours is a workshop or hardware store, pegboard is the clear-cut solution to displaying your items. Installation is a breeze, and because they come in different colors, you can get one that goes well with your wall. Pegboards are mostly used to hold up fast-moving items right above the counter, where they’re easy to see and reach.
On the other hand, because the hooks chip and rip out of the board pretty easily, the use of pegboards is limited to relatively light items. The disconnect, therefore, comes when you have to display items that are too heavy for your pegboard and are not fit for your cabinet or shelf.
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly wall-display system and your items are all fairly light, pegboards are a great choice. For hanging heavier things, however, try going the grid way instead.
Using gridwall as your vertical wall organizer is a significant step up in the price range from pegboards. Nevertheless, if you desire to have an attractive and organized yet simplistic feel in your store, grids are the best option.
Gridwalls are made of sturdy metal rods, meaning that when mounted on your wall, they can hold everything that pegboards can, plus any heavier items. Furthermore, the rectangular grids help maintain uniformity on the wall, while minimizing cluster. Gridwalls come in different sizes and can be placed easily anywhere in your shop.
The only notable drawback comes in the perspective of design and décor. Gridwalls tend to drain the beauty out of a wall and rarely go well with furniture, so you’ll probably need to stretch your creativity a great deal to make them blend with the rest of the store.
Conclusion: it’s not what you use, it’s how you use it
Pegboards and gridwalls are both viable choices for wall organization, but figuring out what works how and where will make the difference between having a cluttered store that undermines the customer’s shopping experience and a well-arranged shop that is appealing to all.
For instance, although pegboards can’t hold everything on their own, you can use display hooks for retail when you need to hang those heavy items. And, while gridwalls may not go well with your wall or your furniture, using them to hang large, colorful items can recapture the blend.
The power of space management is in your hands. Use it.
