The #1 feature we wanted was flexibility. Slatwall gives us that. Proslat's are strong which means I will never be afraid to hang anything reasonable there.
We are building an herb garden in the basement. We are using one shelf to hold the grow lights, and another to hold the tray and its warming mat. I bought an assortment of hooks and baskets and it is fun to see how versatile and useful they are. I love to get organized. But I'm not sure how. These slatwalls make it fun because I can try an idea, and if I don't like it, I can relocate stuff easily. I just bought a 4-pack to expand to the garage next.
