Square Edge Skirting Board

(3 Products)

A square-edge skirting board is a sleek and modern trim that covers the joint between a wall and the floor. It features a straight, sharp edge along the top surface, providing a clean and minimalist look. One key benefit of using square skirting board is that it can be cut to any height without affecting its appearance. Since it has no profile, it can be installed at any height while maintaining a consistent look. Another welcome benefit of this lack of profile is that it makes for a more cost-effective option than some of the more decorative skirting products.

Frequently Asked Square Edge Skirting Board Questions

What Skirting Boards Make A Room Look Bigger?

Using white trims and skirting boards can create an illusion of greater depth, making the room appear bigger.

What Is A Primed Skirting Board?

As opposed to more traditional pine options, a primed 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 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.

Can Square Edge Skirting Boards Be Stained or Painted After Installation?

Yes, square-edge skirting boards can be stained or painted after installation to match the desired colour scheme of the room. However, proper surface preparation, such as sanding and priming, may be necessary for optimal results.

What Is A 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. 

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.
