Oak Skirting Boards
Whether dark or light, chamfered or rounded, oak skirting boards are a fantastic way to bring an air of timeless style to your property. At The Skirting Board Shop, we offer dozens of oak veneer skirting boards, so you’re sure to find a profile and colour to match your interior design preferences.
Why we use MDF in our oak skirting boards
There are numerous advantages to choosing MDF rather than solid oak for your skirting boards.
First and foremost, oak veneer offers all the aesthetic appeal of solid wood, but with a more affordable price tag. We use real wood timber in our veneer, so there’s no need to scrimp on style when you opt for MDF over solid oak.
But it’s not just about the upfront cost – oak veneer skirting boards could save you money in the long term too thanks to their durability. Unlike solid wood, MDF doesn’t expand, contract or warp during fluctuations in weather, making it less prone to splitting along the grain. The MDF core is moisture-resistant, which protects our oak skirting boards against swelling.
Oak veneer also allows for more elaborate designs, as intricate detailing can be carved into the veneer. This gives you a greater variety of style options, enabling you to create a unique look tailored to your own preferences.
Your choice of finish
Because we understand that everyone has different tastes, we offer a choice of finishes.
For the most convenient option, choose our fully finished oak skirting boards in either Golden Oak or Light Oak, which require no painting or decorating – they can simply be installed as soon as they arrive at your house.
Alternatively, opt for our unfinished skirting boards to apply your own lacquered, oiled or waxed finish. The choice is yours!
