What did you use to hang items without hurting the wooden slats?

Wentworth, Inc.
The items hanging on the slat walls are permanent (lights, TV, outlets, etc..). Depending on the item they are either directly attached to the slats or the slats have been cut back to allow for mounting hardware. Thanks for your inquiry.

Birch slats - What materials are used behind the birch slats? Is it drywalled? Or is it just the wood framing?

The horizontal birch slats cover vertical birch slats at the corners and are mounted over finished drywall. Thanks for inquiring.

All paint by Benjamin Moore but exact colors not available at this time. Looking into it - also a local Benjamin Moore store should be able to provide a close match if you show this image.

What about the ceiling? - My basement has insulation in the rafters. I love your look here but do some basements need insulation in the rafters but other don't? I live in the Northeast.

If the basement space is conditioned you do not need insulation. You will want to make sure your exterior walls are insulated if you remove the insulation. Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cathy Lara added this to A Gloomy Basement Lightens Up
If funds were unlimited, Wentworth says, his clients would go in the direction of a full house overhaul. "But in the meantime, it's nice for them to have this refreshing change in the basement."Cabinets on this level give the family more storage and organization options for toys and loose items.
