Important Skirting Board Considerations


When it comes to re-decorating, it is the little things that matter. Paying attention to the details makes a room look so much better. There is nothing worse than getting the furniture back into your new living room, sitting down and noticing something small that you have missed. It gets even more irritating when it is still bugging you months later.

One thing a lot of people rarely think about is renewing their skirting boards. It is not hard to do. For example, you will find a good range of skirting boards on this website.

Getting the era right

Skirting boards are the perfect example of a little detail that can make a huge difference. This is especially the case if you want to recreate the look of a specific era.

If you redecorate a room in an Edwardian style leaving your modern skirting boards in place would be a bad move. It would really detract from the overall look of the room. In Edwardian times skirting boards were far deeper than they are now. They were also more ornate. Completely opposite to the way the modern ones look.

Ease of maintenance and cleaning

When updating the decor in any room how easy it will be to take care of is an important consideration. You do not want to create more cleaning for yourself by choosing the type that has several grooves running along its length. For sure, you will curse your choice when you find yourself on your knees cleaning the dirt out of those grooves. Smooth finishes are always easier to take care of, which is why bullnose skirting is so popular.

Ease of installation

Laying skirting is not all that hard, but some types are harder to install than other kinds are. Ideally, you want to buy a brand that does not require you to nail each section to the walls. This will save you time because you will not need to do any filling or sanding down before painting them.

Speaking of painting if you are planning to keep your skirtings white, it is usually worth buying the pre-painted type. They cost a little more, but you will save quite a bit of time by using them.

If you do buy the unpainted type, paint them before you install them. It is much easier than getting on your knees to paint them once they have been installed. You will also not have to do any cutting-in to stop paint getting on your walls. In theory, you can get away with just giving the boards a single coat, but it is well worth taking the time to apply one more. Your skirting boards will stay looking good for longer and make it easier for you to clean off any scuff marks.

The environment

When deciding what building materials to buy it is always good to consider the environment. You can still buy skirting board that is made from wood or opt to buy the MDF kind instead. This article explains the environmental impact of both types. So, reading it should help you to decide which type to buy.

  11. What a complete jerk he became after cheating on me on several occasion, his betrayal brought out the worst fear in me to reality. Insecurities almost tore me apart as I asked him if his mistress has bigger butt or breast? If she is machine in bed? If she smells better? If he prefers brunette or blonde? I was going insane.
    A lot of unanswered question forced him to leave, he moved in with her for three months. Three months made me realize how good he was before my temper caused him to looking outside. I also realized it is not good for our children to have a broken home. So I needed him back and also someone or something that can transform me into a better wife and mother.
    Under the mountain of frustration and betrayal comes Dr. Wakina by dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com with the much anticipated help that did not only bring back my husband as a changed man, but made me superior over my disabilities.
    I am glad I picked faith over fear (through Dr. Wakina) which could have ruined my marriage. We are deeply in love again.
