When it comes to interior design, there are no right or wrong answers - just your own preferences. This is just as true for skirting boards as it is for walls, doors and furniture. Countless articles and social media accounts may try to convince us to go for a more modern look, but many homeowners simply prefer the timeless appeal of classic skirting boards. Although they are most often seen in period properties, classic skirting boards can look just as stylish in more contemporary homes. Characteristics naturally vary from one design to another, but they are typically thicker and taller than modern skirting boards - partly because older homes generally have much higher ceilings than the average new-build today. Whatever classic aesthetic you're aiming to replicate in your home, you'll find a skirting board to match from our vast range of finishes, profiles and sizes.
