Ah, housework – the ‘gift’ that just keeps on giving. Or rather, taking: time, energy, the cost of cleaning products and appliances… So it seems doubly unfair that, having expended so much effort on a big clean, it will all need to be done again, and much sooner than seems fair or reasonable.
Luckily, Jali has the products to take the pain and strain out of keeping your domain in order. Take our Shaker peg rails: super-quick and easy to design and install and SO useful. They are made to measure to give you hanging space wherever you need it, at a great price and with real style. Keeping as much stuff as possible off floors, chairs and other surfaces makes cleaning a room so much easier. And reducing clutter makes a big difference to everyone’s sanity and well-being…
Put our peg rails in the hall close to the floor, so the little ones can hang up their own outdoor things, just like the grownups. Fix them higher up so the adults can keep all their coats, hats and brollies tidy and ready for action.
Our peg rails are also ideal in kids’ bedrooms for hanging up clothes or for holding bags they can stash toys or other treasures in. In the bathroom they are perfect for towels, dressing gowns and PJs; no more excuses for floors strewn with soggy bathsheets and discarded garments! And in the kitchen, they make really practical batterie de cuisine-type storage for pans, utensils and other kitchenalia. In fact, the possibilities are almost endless, anywhere in the house…
With the clever Jali online system, you can design your own unique peg rails to any length up to a maximum of 3 metres and to a height of 75mm to 300mm. There are two sizes of solid beechwood pegs: 117mm long with a head diameter of 31mm, or 56mm long with a head diameter of 19mm. These can either be varnished or painted.
There’s also a choice of end shapes, or you can join the rails together to wrap around two or more sides of a room. And to ensure that they match a range of interior schemes, rails can have bevels as well as engraved lines and beads.
The Jali Designer will automatically choose the number of pegs based on the length of the rail – but you can change this to whatever suits you. I recently spotted a great idea on www.houzz.com here – two sets of rails, one above the other, with the pegs alternating top and bottom, so longer items on the top rail, such as bath towels, can hang down between the pegs on the lower rail. Clever stuff – and really easy to do it yourself on the Designer!
We think the contrast between painted rails and the natural wood of the pegs is particularly effective, and gives a gorgeous Scandinavian-influenced look. Combine it with a painted Jali cupboard with a real wood veneer top (as in our photo, left) and you have a winning combination.
So give yourself and your home an affordable treat this summer with some new Shaker peg rails. Just click on the ‘Customise’ link under the images to get started, and look forward to an addition to the family that will also help to keep everybody organised… beautifully!
