Skirting Board Profiles in 2020

New year, new decor? As we continue into the year of 2020 and head towards spring cleaning time, many may be considering a fresh lick of paint on the walls, a few new pieces of furniture and perhaps even some new skirting boards to refresh the rooms throughout your house. To help with the decision, we have put together some emerging trends for skirting boards this year and some of our favourites for you to choose from.

Skirting Boards

To give an overview, skirting boards are a type of board (that come in a variety of materials), used to cover the space between your interior wall and flooring. They come in a variety of colours, profiles and shapes. Our materials range from wooden (such as pine, oak and beech) to MDF and HDF – a modern alternative to the traditional style. Skirting boards direct cut, shape and deliver your skirting boards to choice – browse our full range online now to start your skirting boards journey.

Grooved Skirting


Different in style to simple profiles, grooved skirting boards offer a little more character and dimension to a room. With a variety of patterns and shapes available, grooved skirting boards are something that can appeal to everyone. They are easy to maintain, install and look striking whether they are left bare or painted in a variety of colours.

Timeless Skirting Boards

Following on from the simple style, other classic skirting boards are those that have been around for decades – Georgian skirting boards and ovolo skirting board designs. Elegant in nature and strong in structure, these skirting boards look perfect in living rooms and bedrooms with their luxurious look.

Coloured Skirting Boards 


With abstract on the rise in interior design, painted skirting boards are paired perfectly with any quirky or bold room. To achieve this look, start out with a wooden skirting board with the profile of your choice. Prime the skirting board to ensure paint applies cleanly and apply several layers of coloured paint until the skirting board is fully opaque.
