Create your own bedroom sanctuary
Slat wall panels are a fantastic option if you’re wanting to soften the space you’re in, making them a great choice for your bedroom design. Whether you’re looking for light and airy slat wall options to welcome in more natural light and elevate the space, or you’re searching for darker slat wall panelling to create a dark and restful environment to help you sleep, there are plenty of options that are suitable for using in bedrooms. Slat wall panels can be used around the entire room to help reduce noise and create a calming atmosphere, or they make a great feature wall, perfect behind a headboard for drawing focus to the bed and emphasising the feeling of rest and calm within the bedroom.
The s-line slat panels from our in-demand Vox Linerio collection are made in a desirable bright white colourway that looks perfect in a neutral toned room. A popular choice for bedroom interiors, these can be paired with other white and neutral-coloured furnishings and decor to produce a harmonious effect.
2. Standout media wall
If you’re unfamiliar with a media wall, this is essentially the wall in your living room that your TV is mounted on. This is a common focal point when designing a living room as often these spaces are designed to ensure that every person in the room can see the television. However, the contrast between the TV and the wall can often be quite harsh, and sometimes these spaces are neglected in the design as the TV is the only thing considered for that area. Slat wall panels are a great way to add texture and interest to this space, and they also help to soften the area around the television, providing more interest to this space than simply just the screen.
These 3D textured light ash slat wall panels from the Sulcado collection can be used to elevate your media wall and compliment the surrounding space in your living area. Designed with the ability to transform any plain and ordinary wall into a captivating focal point, this acoustic slat panelling will seamlessly blend with almost any contemporary-style interior.
3. Sound-proofing your office
Whether it's for a home office or a shared company space, these panels are a great way of creating a zone for focus within your space. Not only do these uplift and add some personality to the space, but, as previously mentioned, a desirable feature of slat wall panels are their noise-reducing properties. Helping to create a calm, stylish and productive environment, there are many advantages that come with adding slat walls to your office space or other quiet room.
Boasting a contemporary design, the Anthracite slat wall panelling in charcoal, which is part of the signature 3D textured panels collection, is an ideal choice for office interiors to create an all-round sophisticated appearance that promotes focus.
4. Create a feature wall
This versatile cladding is a great, non-traditional option for a feature or accent wall that strays away from the classic patterned wallpaper. While there are many different ways to style a feature wall, if your budget allows, we would always recommend going the extra mile to create a desirable space. For instance, in the image below, wood slat wall panels have been incorporated into the living room as a backdrop to a white wall that cleverly doubles as storage space. Feature lighting has also been added to enhance the textural lines and edges of these walls.
