Options for shed interior walls?


I am building a shed and am trying to figure out what to use as an interior wall surface. I could use drywall, but that seems a little fragile for a shed. Pegboard is possible but seems a little ugly for the whole wall, and I'd still need something to use for the ceiling.

Any ideas?

It depends on what you intend using the shed for. eg workshop, place to escape from the wife and have a quiet beer, storage etc.

My shed is a garden and tool storage shed. Lawn mower, garden tools, bags of soil and mulch, portable table saw, pesticides, etc.

Thanks.

I used 4x8 sheets of 1/4" white pegboard for the walls of my workshop - I think it looks fine, and is functional for storage. For a shed or workshop a lot of the walls get covered from view anyway. You can use 4x8 sheets of beadboard for the ceiling.

I don't finish the interior of a shed
I nail 2x's horizontal in the stud bays as small shelves
I also put nails up in the stud bays to hang stuff

I think that if it is for storage I would leave as it is.

7/16" or 1/2" OSB works very well, solid enough to support shelves and is good painted to lighten up inside of shed, pretty inexpensive too. Insulate walls before installing , mini frige, TV and have a nice man-cave.

Exactly what I was thinking. Also some 1x across the stud bay about 2-3 feet up to allow for rakes and shovels etc. to be stuck in behind.

Slat wall. It ant cheap, but it looks clean and is super functional. Lowes stocks a good selection of slatwall hooks in the same isle as the shop vacs. some home depot's carry full sheets of slat wall in a couple colors in the sheet goods isle, but depot carries almost no slatwall accessories, and the ones they do stock are ridiculously expensive
