Victorian Skirting Board

Victorian skirting is available in a variety of skirting board profiles and moulding patterns. You can easily find a good match for the existing wooden skirting board in your period home. Traditionally skirting is used to decoratively cover the lowest part of the wall in any room. The different types of skirting boards tend to be in terms of the top details and the skirting board heights. Tall skirtings are suited to high ceilings and shorter skirting board profiles to smaller houses and cottages. Softwood skirting board is a good choice if the skirting board is being painted. If you are looking to match exisitng woodwork in oak, ash, tulipwood or sapele we can supply these woods for some profiles. For bespoke requirements we can match your existing skirting if you require at least 80m.

Wooden and pine skirting boards

We can help you with sizes up to a maximum height of 300mm. And if you require one of our pine skirting boards in another wood we can produce this for you too. Wooden skirting boards are fixed in place using nails and/or a solvent-based adhesive. Start by measuring your first run and then mitring any corners at 45 degrees. 

Once you're ready to fix your Victorian skirting board in place, generously apply adhesive on the wall behind and then push the skirting into place.  Nail the skirting boards in place with nails spaced at approx 1-foot intervals.  Repeat until all of your skirting is in place. You can fill the nail holes with wood filler, and then lightly sand before you paint the skirting. This method can be used for all types of skirting board.

If you do require one of our traditional skirting board profiles in a different height, please contact us.
