Contemporary style skirting boards for modern properties

January 26, 2017

In construction particularly, it has proven to be the small things that count when it comes to final touches. Skirting boards specifically, have become much more than a practicality. Where they were initially used to simply hide unsightly joins and expansion gaps, they have turned into something much more.

Skirting boards are now used in varying ways due to their aesthetic benefits. Choosing the right skirting boards to fit in with the style of the property and interior design is a must. Skirtings can bring a lot to a property and are often painted in contrast to walls, as a feature element in their own right.

Modern skirting boards to match the rest of the property

With the increasing number of new builds, both in the pipeline and being built, modern skirtings are much more popular option. Mouldings in period properties went far beyond just skirting boards; picture rails, architrave and handrails would decorate the walls of properties. The trend is now to have more simplified skirtings. Our modern skirting board range includes chamfered, pencil rounded and ovolo designs. All of which are much less detailed and intricate than the traditional profiles.
