How important are skirting boards in flooring

Description:

Also known as baseboards, skirting boards have been around for many, many years in different forms and typically serve two or three important purposes.  First, a skirting board can be added to a room purely for decorative purposes.  In old houses, for example, it’s common to find high skirting boards that feature mouldings and can even be quite intricate, making a decorative feature.  That said, at its simplest level, a skirting board will simply be a plank of wood that has been nailed, screwed or glued to the wall. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

How Important Are Skirting Boards In Flooring?
2
  • Also known as baseboards, skirting boards have
    been around for many, many years in different
    forms and typically serve two or three important
    purposes.  First, a skirting board can be added
    to a room purely for decorative purposes.  In old
    houses, for example, its common to find high
    skirting boards that feature mouldings and can
    even be quite intricate, making a decorative
    feature.  That said, at its simplest level, a
    skirting board will simply be a plank of wood
    that has been nailed, screwed or glued to the
    wall.

  • The second purpose of a skirting board is to
    protect the wall.  Skirting boards will typically
    protect the walls from accidental knocks, as well
    as wear and tear from furniture and soiling and
    scuffs from mops and hoovers.  In the third
    instance, skirting boards can be used as a really
    clever way of hiding uneven or rugged floor or
    wall edges.

Skirting boards and wood flooring in renovation
or re-looking projects.
  • If youre in the throws of renovating a property
    or re-looking a room in your home, it may well be
    that you already have skirting boards in place. 
    What this means, when you decide on how you will
    fit your new floor, is that you either have the
    choice of leaving the skirting boards in place,
    or removing them to enable the floor to be laid.

  • Particularly in older properties, many people are
    wary of removing skirting boards because more
    often than not, they take away a whole lot of the
    walls plaster with them.  It is for this reason
    that most people decide to leave their skirting
    boards in place when they fit a new wooden floor.

Wood Skirting boards and wood flooring in
new-builds.
  • If youre planning wood flooring in a new-build
    situation, youll have significantly more
    flexibility, because youll be able to install
    your chosen skirting boards after youve fitted
    your floor.  By working this way, youll be able
    to choose the style of flooring youre wanting
    and also the style of skirting youd like to
    finish off your look.  Once again though, dont
    forget to make sure that you leave an expansion
    gap all the way around your room to make sure
    that your floor has the space to expand and
    contract without getting damaged in the process.
