Wooden Slat Wall is currently the popular choice to upgrade your space’s visual aesthetic and there are many designs that you can take into consideration. It may look simple, but it adds a great sense of style, upgrading your space instantly.

Finally, unlike other walls, if there is a small dent on the wooden slat wall, you only need to remove the affected pieces and simply replace them. 

The slat designs are getting more and more popular recently, many places are starting to produce slats to be used in either interior or exterior. Slats can not only be made into decoration such as slat walls, ceiling, or screens, they can even be made into functional furniture like slat cabinets or slat doors. 

At MUCHi Design, we specialized in solid wood furniture. We produce each and every single one of our slats from solid wood. Solid wood not only has high durability, but they are also flexible, we can alter the size and width of the slats to fulfill your needs. Because they are made out of solid wood, they are made to last a lifetime with proper maintenance and care. We can also make a suggestion on the type of wood according to the usage and budget to best accommodate your design and needs.

 

Why Solid Slat over Veneer Slat?

We highly recommend and insist on producing slats using solid wood over laminated slats for the following reasons.

  1. They are sturdier
  2. They can last a long time
  3. You will not need to worry about the veneer peeling off over time.
 
As the image showing below, these are some example of Veneer peeling from the veneer slat:

We had encountered many clients who want their slats replaced because the veneer of the wood slat is peeling off, and once you replace one, you will need to replace the whole set to match the veneer pattern. However, with solid wood slats, you do not need to worry about such a problem. Solid wood slat is also heavier, which makes them sturdier and stronger than veneer slats. 

There are many types of wood out there, and each of them has its own characteristics. We, MUCHi Design, uses the following types of wood to produce our wooden slats:

Type: Hardwood 
Colour: Darker wood tone
Grain: Straight fine grain
Finishing: Natural Finishes / Oil

Most of our client likes the darker, elegant tone that the walnut possesses. The walnut wood colour can range from a pale brown to a dark chocolate brown. Their grain is fairly light and tight together. Our client usually chooses walnut to make their wooden slat when they want to create a contrast with their existing interior, using walnut slats to create an elegance aura for space. They may cost more compare to other wood types, but they do produce a unique aura that no other wood can produce. Walnut is one of the most durable hardwoods such as stability, shock resistance.

Due to its quality, walnut a premium domestic hardwood, its price is in the higher range among all the other hardwoods.

Type: Hardwood 
Colour: Light Brown
Grain: Varied and openly porous grain
Finishing: Natural Finishes / Oil / Stain

White Oak is one of the most popular hardwood. It is hard and heavy, it has a fairly light to light brown colour, and its grain is straight with coarse uneven texture. White oak has a lighter colour therefore it is also common with stain. When clients want to stain their wood a certain colour, we do highly suggest using white oak or red oak.

They are high in rot resistance and are very durable. They also react to steam-bending very well, therefore white oak is a good choice when you want to form your slats in a certain way.

Type: Hardwood
Colour: Orangish-Red
Grain: Varied and openly porous grain
Finishing: Natural Finishes / Oil / Stain

While most characteristics are relatively the same with White Oak, Red Oak does have a very noticeable difference from White Oak. The colour of Red Oak is warmer, it has a very orangish-red tone, but they are very easily stained. They are the most popular wood to be used for staining. Most clients who chose to use Red Oak usually want to stain it darker, such as the colour of walnut. 

Just like White Oak, they are very durable and high in rot resistance as well as it being highly flexible.

Type: Hardwood 
Colour: Nearly white to an off-white cream colour. But it can be reddish or golden hue.
Grain: Closed and generally straight
Finishing: Natural Finishes / Oil

Maple is the most common wood here in Canada, it is also one of the hardest hardwoods out there. Maple had a very light, off-white, creamy colour, thus they are very popular among client who wants a bright clean look of their interior. Most clients would think it will be easier to stain or colour match their existing wood interior or exterior with maple, in fact, it is the opposite. Despite it being one of the lighter woods out there, Maple is not ideal for staining. Maple has a very hard exterior, very small pores, which makes it harder for the wood to absorb stain well, it usually takes a lot more coat and even then, we can’t guarantee the evenness is colour, they tend to turn out very spotty.

However, Maple is a great choice of wood in terms of hardness, sturdiness.

Type: Softwood 
Colour: A light brown color with a hint of red and/or yellow, with darker growth rings.
Grain: Generally straight, or slightly wavy. Medium to coarse texture.
Finishing: Natural Finishes / Oil / Stain

Fir is the new type of wood MUCHi Design decides to carry. Most people choose to use fir wood to create their decorations, in this case, slat wood wall or slat screen, where their main purpose is to decorate without heavy usage. Fir wood has a lighter, brownish colour, but it can also be stain easily as it absorbs the stain well. Since it is not hardwood, it is a cheaper choice for slats, it also comes in a longer length than the hardwood, thus they are popular for clients who want to create a bigger project such as a 2 stories high slat screen. Fir is a good low-budget option if the usage is to decorate your area.

Slat Wall Stairs

There are many ways to create a separator between the room and the stair area. Some client will choose to use the solid wall to create separation between the living space and staircase, while some prefer to have lights passes through and chose transparent materials, allowing them to see who’s going up or down the stairs. Both solutions have their own pro and cons, though the solid wall is a good separator, it tends to make the staircase too dark. While using transparent material may allow more lights to pass through but it can create the feeling of lack of privacy for the users.

 

Using slats as a separator, or a screen, allow the users to have the sense of separation between the staircase and the room. It also allows lights to pass through between the slats, still bringing the light into the staircase or room.

This is a great solution for the homeowner who wants to upgrade their house’s aesthetic and functionality. Slats made out of solid wood can create a sense of nature and comfort, it can help users to relax.

Slat Wall stairs are not only a great way to decorate your house, raising its aesthetic, but it also acts as a separator efficiently.
