When do you use a Skirting Block?

A skirting block is a great choice when using different profiles, thicknesses or heights for skirting and architraves. It means that the two profiles can be placed side by side without looking out of place. See the size guide below for recommendations of the right size skirting block to suit your skirting and architrave combination

Skirting blocks are also a stunning design feature in their own right, and extensively used in Hamptons, French Provincial and Edwardian / Georgian styles.
