There are a whole lot of great organization methods for kitchen drawers, many needing custom work or help from a professional. A pegged dish stall, however, is something that you can set up yourself. The smart thought piqued our curiosity in a current Houzz User Kitchen of the Week, and we haven’t been able to get it out of our heads since.
If you’ve got a deep kitchen stall that’s turned into a rattling mishmash of dishes, then picking up a pegboard and dowels in the regional hardware store could provide you with the perfect solution. Have a look:
A deep drawer is a great way to put away dishes for people who want to keep above-counter shelving tidy — or to avoid shelving together. Obviously, the problem with trying to pile dishes neatly into a drawer is they can slosh around if you open and shut the drawer, inviting scrapes, chips and even breakage.

Some cabinetry shops offer you a system very similar to what you find here. Additionally, it is a relatively easy DIY fix.
By installing a pegboard cut to the dimensions of your drawer and using wooden dowels using a dowel pin screwed into the base, you may make your own customizable dish organizer. The dowels keep the dishes set up and may be moved around as necessary.
This fantastic idea for keeping dishes was brought to our attention from the kitchen remodel of Houzz consumer Karen Heffernan. Inspired by a number of the last photographs, she implemented the dowel-and-pegboard system above in many deep drawers for easy, space-efficient dish storage.
