Today’s garages are the last frontier for capturing space and redefining it as workshops, project centers and just about anything else requiring room to work and store things. When you’re looking for a practical surface, Peg Panels by DPI are a good choice, whether a garage needs a total facelift or a one-wall fix up. The 4-by-8-foot panels, which cover 32 square feet, in white and charcoal, are sold at home centers and lumberyards.

A carpenter will charge $305 to install a 12-foot wall of the panels fastened to furring strips in a garage. This includes the labor and material. You can buy the material for $105 and install it yourself and save 66 percent. Before installation, make sure the wall surface is firm, clean and dry, and measure the area to figure out how many panels and furring strips are needed. For the best placement, dry fit the panels and then cut them to size. Use shims to keep the panels level, and apply a construction adhesive such as Liquid Nails to fasten them to the furring strips.
