Skirting & Scotia
Why do I need skirting boards?
Skirting Boards are essential for homes both practically and aesthetically. They form a junction between the wall and floor, concealing any uneven surfaces, joints and unsightly wiring. They also act as a buffer between the wall and floor, protecting your walls from dirt, scuffing and damage caused by kicks, knocks and furnishings. This will help keep your room looking fresh and new for longer. Our skirting Boards are easy to install and are available in a wide range of stylish finishes, so you can easily find one that complements your décor. You can also paint them if you wish, or replace them easily if damaged. This a makes our Skirting Boards a low-maintenance and inexpensive design feature for your space.
What is Scotia?
Decorative and practical, Scotia is essential for completing the installation for Solid Wood and Laminate Flooring. This flooring needs to have an expansion gap around the room - Scotia fills in this gap by fixing to the skirting board and over the top of the flooring around the perimeter of the wall. Scotia comes in two styles: one is concave, and the other is convex, also known as beading. Beading is normally made from soft wood and so requires painting after it has been installed in order to strengthen it.

- What is the purpose of floor skirting?
Skirting is essentially a board that runs along the border on interior and exterior walls. Although a simple product, floor skirting serves several purposes. Firstly, a skirting board adds aesthetic-based benefits; it’s a way to hide unwanted features in the interior walls such as exposed wiring that cannot be removed, skirting boards also come in various colours and can be matched with the style of the room for a refined, clean look. In having a slight projection outwards, the skirting board will always keep a gap between the wall and nearby furniture, which will help prevent damage caused by accidental knocks and the general wear and tear from furniture.
- How do I choose the right skirting?
It’s essential that skirting isn’t choosing in isolation, it needs to be considered in relation to the rest of your room in order to create a clean look of put-togetherness. Contrasting your skirting board with your walls is a popular choice, for example, if you have a coloured wall, a neutral white skirting board works well. Or pair your skirting boards with your wall by choosing a product in a similar shade for a seamlessly contemporary look. Many of our skirting boards are colour-matched to their corresponding floorboards, making it easy to achieve this beautifully refined look.
- Are skirting boards durable?
Skirting boards offer a means of protection to help keep your wall scuff and scratch free, but it’s important that skirting boards themselves are durable to also give them excellent resistance against marks. As such, our line of skirting boards are equipped with wear and scratch-resistant laminate so that they can maintain their rich depth of colour and lustre for many years to come.
- What are your skirting boards made from?
Our range of skirting boards have an MDF core, which is the most common material used in the building industry –and for good reason. They are free from defects and have excellent resistance to warping, twisting and splitting, meaning they are extremely durable and are a great cost-effective option.
- How does laminate skirting boards compare to solid wood?
Recent printing technologies allow laminate skirting to feature all the subtle cracks, knots and veining that is seen in real wood for a look that is timeless and stylish all at once. Laminate skirting thus provides all the aesthetic benefits of real wood, but without the difficult upkeep.
