Whether they're on the interior or exterior of a home, wood slats offer that timeless-yet-renewed aesthetic that is a common thread in all great design styles. Today, we're going to look at 10 Vertical Slat Wall Ideas that will remind you how simple changes to a space can make the biggest difference.
Juxtaposing with the colder surfaces in the room, namely the steel prep-kitchen-style island and the concrete floors, the vertical wood slat wall adds a tasteful touch of warmth to this minimalist Scandinavian eat-in kitchen. The added textural element makes space feel cozy, without compromising the minimalist nature of the home.
While arguably more "plank" than "slat", the vertical lines of this walnut wood panelling are a defining feature of this mid-century living room. With curvature in the furniture and a pop of colour from the oversized indoor plant, this space feels perfectly balanced between minimalist lines and warm, softer touches.
In this space designed by Leanne Ford, the black wood slats surround the retired built-in fireplace to create the focal point that this contemporary living room deserves. While the feature is undoubtedly bold, it contrasts perfectly with the white walls and the jute rug to complete the contemporary look of the space. The lines are clean, the art and plants are oversized, and the wall has the perfect textural element for the sunshine to play off of.
This room pulls out all the stops and isn't afraid to hold back - the walnut built-in shelving is accentuated by brushed gold hardware and an extravagant circular window. Shot by London-based photographer Natalie Priem, this design is eccentric, bold, and full of life! The vertical wood slats behind the bed in this Scandinavian loft-style bedroom add the perfect touch of warmth, without overstaying their welcome.
This sunny bedroom looks like the perfect place to wake up and instantly feel calm, grounded, and ready for whatever the day has to offer.
