Wall systems, putting vertical surfaces to good use
For heavier tools, consider a metal grid system.
Metal grids are similar to slatted panels in the way they are anchored to wall studs, but offer attachment points over the entire wall surface covered by the grid. Hooks, hangers, shelves, and other accessories snap onto the gridwork, and are held in place by gravity.
Grid panels come in several sizes (2x4', at about $12-$14 is the most popular), but colors are currently limited to white, black, and silver or chrome. Hangers are priced similar to slatwall hangers.
