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.
