The Power Of Modern Skirting: Bye-Bye Ugly Nail Holes

“Do You need skirting as well?”

This is always the accompanied question that a flooring consultant will ask you when you’re choosing your ideal floors. It’s a decidedly simple question, but most people get terribly confused because they’re not familiar with the term at all. They usually find themselves thinking, ‘Skirting? What is skirting?’ Trust us, it can become an awkward conversational faux pas! Hence, we will talk about skirting in this post. After reading this, we hope you understand – what skirting is, why you need it, and how you can go about choosing it.

 

What is Skirting?

Have you ever noticed that 3”-4” tall tile that runs around the very base of your wall? That’s actually skirting. It’s also known as baseboards or skirting boards. This has been around for quite a few years in various forms. Of course, it serves crucial purposes, so let’s check how does skirting serves its purpose!  

 

Decoration

Skirting for decorative purposes is only the tip of the iceberg – it has more pragmatic uses as well. But creating a visual harmony within the space is one of the foremost reasons to go for it. A skirting board can be added to a room in order to add a more holistic vibe to the overall floor aesthetic. It can definitely be selected to match your choice of flooring. This matching synergy can make the overall ambiance look uniform.

 

Protection

This is one of the major reasons why you should invest in proper skirting. A skirting board can protect the base of your wall from accidental knocks, scratches, and untimely wear and tear from furniture, mops, and even vacuum cleaners. This protection helps elongate the renovation timeline of your space while making it more aesthetically pleasing in the process.

 

keeping uneven edges out of sight

Another important reason to go for skirting is that it is quite an effective way to hide away the uneven floor or wall edges. Skirting can help keep those out of sight; therefore, the entire room including floors and walls can look completely stunning.

 

how is skirting installed?

Previously, the traditional method to install skirting involved nailing a plank of wood to the base of the wall. Sometimes, people glue or screw it. However, this method may destroy the aesthetic and pragmatic integrity of the installation point. If at any point, you decided to remove the skirting off or replace it, the damage would be irreversible. This means you have to spend money to fix it.

Moreover, if you are going to renovate your home with existing skirting, you will encounter two scenarios – remove it or leave it there. Take note that removing the skirting can sometimes remove a whole chunk of the wall plaster as well, which adds to the cost to mend.
