Homeowners are increasingly becoming experts in the design and decoration of their living spaces, and as such finer details like the correct timber mouldings for skirting and architraves are now considered integral in the completion of any scheme. Finishing touches in the home can enhance and elevate your interior decor, whilst colour palette, furniture choice and other furnishings set the look, the details pull everything together.
Skirting boards are fitted to run along the base of a wall where it meets the floor. This type of timber moulding is almost universally used in all domestic and commercial environments, not only creating a naturally pleasing aesthetic, but also providing protection to the base of your walls, especially on corners. These specific Timber Mouldings can be a useful vehicle for hiding unsightly electric cabling and wires. As well as hiding appliances these types of timber mouldings can be manufactured to feature a recess on the reverse side to act as a channel for the cable and keep wiring protected and out of sight.
Architraves perform the function of framing your doorways and entrances, in much the same way picture frames surround a photograph or work of art. Framing a doorway automatically creates an aesthetically pleasing finish by obscuring any joints or gaps that may be present between the door, door frame and wall. Skirting and architraves are extensively used across both domestic and commercial residences and as such are likely to be exposed to wear and tear. Our range of timber mouldings are quality assured and engineered specifically for added strength, stability and performance, so that they retain their integrity and look whilst subject to the usual rigours of a busy workplace or household.
These timber mouldings are available in a choice of designs, depths, material and finishes. The overall composition and height of your room can be a determinant when choosing from this range of products. Rooms with high ceilings have a proportional need for a deeper skirting board to create dimensional balance. Our timber mouldings are available in oak and walnut either unfinished to allow for further, staining, painting or varnishing, or pre-finished at source for your convenience.
