Ovolo Skirting Board

(3 Products)

Wall protection needn't be dull; ovolo skirting boards give character to interiors while acting as a barrier against knocks and scuffs. The term "ovolo" refers to the convex shape of the moulding, which resembles the shape of an egg. The rounded profile with a quarter circle shape of ovolo skirting board creates a graceful and soft edge, enhancing the visual appeal of the surrounding area. These reliable mouldings are primed and moisture resistant, ensuring they stand strong against the harshest everyday wear and tear.

What Is Ovolo Skirting? 

An ovolo skirting board is a type of architectural moulding that is commonly used in interior design and construction. 

Showcasing a slick curvature profile that transitions into a straight profile, ovolo skirting makes away with dull, uninspired skirting boards and architectural detailing. 

Unlike natural wood, MDF ovolo skirting has a consistent colour and grain pattern throughout, eliminating the defects and variations often found in solid wood. 

Its ease of installation, durability, and customisation options make it a popular choice for homeowners and designers seeking a stylish and budget-friendly option for interior trim.

Where Is Ovolo Skirting Board Used? 

Ovolo skirting board products are a popular choice in residential and commercial properties and are often used in living rooms, bedrooms, hallways, and other areas where a decorative and functional baseboard is desired.

These mouldings are installed at the base of walls, where they cover a multitude of aesthetic sins, covering any gaps or uneven edges that naturally occur between the wall and floor joint. 

Benefits of Using Ovolo Skirting Board

  • Ovolo skirting boards provide a smooth transition between the wall and the floor, covering any gaps or uneven edges. 
  • They can protect the wall from damage caused by furniture, vacuum cleaners, or other objects. 
  • They can be utilised as a method to hide cables and wiring. 
  • They can provide the finishing touch and detail, adding a touch of elegance and luxury to any room.
  • The ovolo skirting boards that we stock are primed to receive a final paint finish - slick white primer finish.

Frequently Asked Ovolo Skirting Board Questions

What Period is Ovolo Skirting? 

Ovolo skirting is typically associated with the Georgian and Victorian architectural periods.

What Is A Primed Ovolo Skirting Board?

As opposed to a more traditional skirting such as pine ovolo skirting board, a primed ovolo skirting board refers to a skirting board that has been pre-coated with a primer or base coat of paint. Primed products tend to receive two coats of good quality primer/basecoat.

Primed gloss finish ovolo skirting boards are commonly available in the market and are designed to save time and effort during installation and painting.

What's more, the priming coats on primed skirting boards act as a protective layer, helping to seal the surface and protect the skirting board from moisture, dust, and other environmental factors. This process can enhance the durability and longevity of the skirting board, making it more resistant to wear and tear over time.

Are Skirting Boards A Necessity? 

Skirting boards are as practically necessary as they are decorative. These mouldings are essential when it comes to patching uneven surfaces and coupling different construction materials at their joint. 

Aside from their decorative properties, skirting boards also act as a safeguarding measure against knocks, scuffs and other general wear and tear. 

What Different Materials Are Skirting Boards Available In?

Skirting boards are available in a range of materials including:

  • MDF skirting board (often moisture resistant)
  • Softwood skirting board
  • Hardwood skirting board
  • Tiled skirting

What Is Rebated Skirting?

For the sake of hiding away wires and pipe work, a skirting board can be engineered with grooves of varying depths and thicknesses to create a cable rebate. 

These artistic rebates efficiently allow for wires to fit snugly behind them, making for a more cohesive finish. If you want to do away with wires and cables, the rebate option is for you. 

How Do I Choose The Right Skirting & Architraves For My Project? 

Choosing the right skirting and architrave for your interior design project requires careful consideration of several factors, including the style of the room, the size of the space, and your personal preferences.

  • Style: Choose a style that complements the overall design of the room. For example, if you have a contemporary space, opt for a simple, clean-lined skirting and architrave design. If you have a more traditional space, choose a more ornate, detailed moulding.
  • Size: Consider the size of the room when choosing your skirting and architrave. Larger rooms can accommodate larger, more ornate designs, while smaller rooms may require a more minimalistic approach.
  • Material: Choose a material that fits your budget and the needs of the space. MDF is a popular and affordable option, while hardwoods such as oak or mahogany provide a more luxurious finish.

What Are Interior Mouldings?

The term 'interior mouldings' encompasses a wide array of decorative elements that add detail and definition to the edges and surfaces of projections or cavities.

From skirting boards that outline the base of walls, to door architraves that frame doorways, mouldings are an essential component in any home design scheme.
