Skirting and Architrave are very similar products, and we manufacture architrave to match our skirting boards.


"Very pleased with the quality of the skirting and arch. I ordered enough to do the first room and then onto the rest of the house. Lengths are long and consistent quality throughout."

We manufacture and supply a full range of Skirting, Architrave and Dado rail

Our skirting is produced is suitable for all. We produce long, 5.4m lengths suitable for house-builders and professional carpenters and smaller, easier-to-handle 3m and 4.2m lengths for DIY and home use. Either way, you can choose your material and profile.

Our 5.4m lengths are mass-produced and much superior to hand-made equivalents as they are done by machines worth over £1m each. The diamond-edged cutters ensure a smooth and precise profile finish.

If you order 50m of Torus or Ogee skirting board, 144mm x 18mm x 5040mm or 4400mm in double-primed and sanded boards, we will pick, wrap, and ship, in a matter of days from stock. We won’t take weeks to start making them from scratch like most of our competitors.

Our skirting is first cut into blanks from full MDF sheets (usually 18mm or 25mm thick) and full size sheets. This again is done by machine to ensure precise edges. The lengths are then put into a production run on our diamond-edged cutters, whereas many manufacturers use inferior methods such as spindle moulders that cut into the profile until enough material has been removed. Our diamond cutters cut to the precise profile every time. 

Skirting boards have been a popular feature in homes for many years, serving both practical and aesthetic purposes. They not only protect your walls from wear and tear but also add character to your room. In this article, we will delve into the history of skirting boards, their uses in modern-day homes, and how to choose the perfect skirting board for your home.

History of Skirting Boards

Skirting boards, also known as baseboards, have been in use for centuries. The ancient Greeks used a baseboard called a “toe kick” to protect their walls from the wear and tear of foot traffic. The Romans also used a similar design, which was made from marble or stone. However, it wasn’t until the 18th century that skirting boards as we know them today became popular in European homes.

During the Georgian period, skirting boards were made from high-quality woods such as oak and mahogany and were elaborately designed with intricate mouldings and carvings. The Victorians continued this trend, using skirting boards as a decorative element in their homes, and experimenting with different materials such as plaster and papier-mâché.

Uses of Skirting Boards

Skirting boards are now used in modern homes for both practical and decorative purposes. They help to protect the walls from scratches, dents, and scuffs caused by foot traffic, furniture, and vacuum cleaners. They also cover up unsightly gaps between the floor and the wall and can provide a finishing touch to a room’s décor.

Skirting boards are available in a variety of materials, including MDF, hardwood, softwood, and PVC. MDF skirting boards are a popular choice as they are easy to install, cost-effective, and can be painted in any color to match your room’s décor.

Choosing the Perfect Skirting Board

Choosing the right skirting board can be a daunting task as there are so many options available. The first thing to consider is the style of your home. If you have a period property, you may want to choose a skirting board that matches the era of your home. If you have a modern home, you may want to opt for a simple, clean-lined skirting board.

The next thing to consider is the height of the skirting board. Taller skirting boards can make a room feel more grand and add character, while shorter skirting boards can create a modern, minimalist look.

Finally, consider the material of the skirting board. If you have a high traffic area, you may want to choose a skirting board made from a durable material such as hardwood or PVC. If you are on a budget, MDF skirting boards can be a cost-effective option.


Skirting boards have been a popular feature in homes for centuries, serving both practical and aesthetic purposes. They not only protect your walls from wear and tear but also add character to your room. Choosing the right skirting board can be a daunting task, but by considering the style of your home, the height of the skirting board, and the material, you can find the perfect skirting board to suit your needs.
