4 Traditional and Creative Uses for Slatwall

Slatwall is most heavily used in traditional retail settings; after all, they are a type of shop fitting and - thanks to their versatile and durable nature – they are particularly suited to shops and their temporary product displays. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be used in other settings too. In fact, slatwall is perfect for an incredibly vast range of applications – some of which are more surprising and creative than others. Whether you’re a business manager or home-owner, we guarantee, a slatwall system could make your life easier and here we look at the top four ways they can be of use.

1. Products and Merchandise

As previously mentioned, slatwall is most often used in retail spaces and commercial stores, where products and merchandise need to be clearly displayed. Traditional slatwall panels can be attached to any existing wall and they also come as free-standing slatwall gondolas, thus allowing you to maximise the floor space of your shop and enabling customers to browse freely and at ease.

With so many different fixtures and accessories to choose from, the possibilities are almost endless. Slatwall panels can be used to display a vast range of different merchandise – including everything from clothes, shoes, and accessories, to magazines, automotive parts and more. Those currently available at UK Shopfittings are constructed from high-quality acrylic and they are just what you need to create a bright and airy product display for your retail store or environment.

2. Marketing and Advertising

Slatwall shelves come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and styles and they are often an ideal place to display marketing materials – such as leaflets, brochures, and catalogues.

Take for example the acrylic display trays and leaflet holders, currently available at UK Shopfittings. These slatwall fixtures and accessories can be used to display further information about your company’s main products and services and they also create the perfect opportunity for advertisement. Liaise with other businesses in the area, particularly those who sell complementary merchandise, and generate additional revenue by selling advertising space on your new slatwall.

3. Home-Owner Applications

Although designed with a retail environment in mind, a slatwall system can also be used creatively about the house. Just use your imagination and think about where a bespoke slatwall system might come in handy (and look stylish!) in your home. Trust us, the possibilities are endless.

Here at UK Shopfittings, we recommend installing a new slatwall system in your kitchen – using shelves and trays to organise your kitchen cabinets and slatwall hooks to hang your pots, pans, and utensils on the wall. You could create a contemporary modular home-office or quirky crafts room, with slatwall shelves and storage trays that can be re-arranged dependent upon your current needs and supplies. Small slatwall panels can even be used to organise a bedroom wardrobe, with a variety of hooks, baskets and trays to store your ever-growing collection of shoes and accessories.

4. Work Life Applications

If your job involves driving a work van, with an assortment of tools and equipment in the back, a slatwall system could be exactly what you need to make your life that little bit easier. Slatwall panels can be mounted onto the inside wall of a van in exactly the same way they are mounted onto the wall of a shop. You can then add hooks, baskets and trays of different shapes and sizes and create a sturdy storage unit for your tools and equipment. This is a fantastic way to tidy up and organise your work van. Rather than rooting around in tool boxes and bags, everything will be in its rightful place and you will be able to access exactly what you need in a quick and efficient manner.

A Slatwall System to Suit Every Application

From their traditional use in the retail environment to their creative applications within the home, it’s fair to say, slatwall is an incredibly versatile product and – with so many options to choose from – they can be easily tailored to meet your individual needs and requirements.

This is why, here at UK Shopfittings, we like to stock an extensive range of slatwall panels and accessories. Wherever you intend to use the slatwall system and whatever design features you have in mind, we can help. Our slatwall panels currently come in two standard sizes; however, they can also be cut to length if you require a particularly small or unusual shape. These panels come in a broad spectrum of different colours and styles, with slatwall inserts to match, and they provide the perfect base for slatwall accessories and fixtures. You can add shelves, baskets, trays, and hooks until your heart is content, arrange them in unique and unusual ways and create a completely bespoke slatwall system that is perfect for you and your current requirements.
