Slat Wall Trends Taking Over 2024

Over the last few years, slat walls have evolved into an interior must-have, gracing the pages of home magazines and trending Instagram accounts.

Let’s explore the coolest slat wall trends that will elevate your space this year…

Move Beyond the Feature Wall

While classic feature walls still hold their own, it’s becoming more and more common to see slat walls play a more prominent role in a space. Here are a few ways you can use slat walls that you might not have seen before…


  • Kissing the Ceiling: Gone are the days of slat walls stopping at eye level. Extend them all the way up for a dramatic, room-defining statement.

  • Kitchen Companions: Slat walls are making waves in kitchens, adorning islands, backsplashes, and even countertops for a touch of warmth and texture.

  • Upcycled Chic: Give old furniture a new lease on life with a slat makeover! Dressers, headboards, and nightstands get an instant style upgrade.

  • Media Marvels: Create a dedicated media wall with slat panels, adding sleek organisation and visual interest to your entertainment zone.

Think Outside the Box

Get creative with your space and experiment with different alignments, rotations and patterns. You don’t have to stick to just vertical or horizontal placements (although those look great too!)


  • Create a dynamic pattern with diagonal slat placement for a touch of retro charm.

  • Don't be afraid to break the horizontal mould! Vertical slats offer a fresh perspective and can even counteract high ceilings.

  • For a subtle touch, go for half-wall panelling, perfect for adding definition and warmth to specific areas.

Mix up the Materials

Wood reigns a long-loved classic, but if it’s not quite exciting enough for you, you can experiment with exciting twists that are great for elevating any space.


  • Combine wood slats with metal accents, woven fibres, or leather for a unique and layered look.

  • Don't shy away from colour! Paint your slats in bold hues or calming neutrals to match your design scheme.

  • Slat walls are very DIY-friendly. Unleash your inner creator and personalise your space!
