DO: If you are already stuck with slatwalls, use a fabric or plastic/card board background that runs vertically. This breaks the horizontal lines and will better highlight product displays. DON’T: Slatwalls offer flexibility in displays. However so do slotted standards and these do not have the very distracting repeated patterns of line that overpower product displays. The only time a slatwall looks good is if it is filled with product and one hardly sees the slatwall.
