How to choose the right size skirting boards?

How to choose the right size skirting boards? First, decide what you are wanting to achieve in your home build, addition or renovation. These are some factors to keep in mind…….

1) Space. A commonly held belief is that large skirting boards can only be used in big rooms with high ceilings. But if you are wanting to create a cosy space, a higher-than-normal skirting is something you can experiment with. Similarly, to create an impression of extra spaciousness you can keep the skirtings smaller in a large area. Ask our team to show you some sample decors.

2) Height. A good starting point is the following chart:

Ceiling Height Complimentary Skirting Sizes
To 2.4m 90-135mm
To 2.7m 115-185mm
To 3.0m 135-230mm
To 3.6m 185mm+

The above are suggestions only. Any skirting 185mm high or more we consider to be large skirtings. 185mm suits most new homes. A more “busy” profile generally looks better in a room with more space available. In a smaller room – if you are using a high-profile style – we would recommend a design with more “breathing space”, i.e. with 50% of flat space in its profile.

Think about what you want to achieve. Do you want a dramatic effect, a cosy space or just to open your room out?

Do you want the skirtings to stand out as a piece of architectural art, or do you want to just enhance the décor of your room?

Does skirting have to match the architraves?

Once you have chosen the skirting board the next decision to make is about the architraves.

While most people will choose the same profile – in a smaller height – it is possible to mix and match profiles to achieve a look that is both interesting and beautiful.

Following are some recommendations which will help in getting the mix right:

1) Architrave widths for different door heights recommendations:

Door Height Architrave Width
2.04m 66-90mm
2.34m 90-135mm
2.70m 115mm+

2) Skirting and architrave combination recommendations:

Skirtings Architrave
90-135mm 66-90mm
115-185mm 90-115mm
185-230mm 90-115mm
230mm+ 115mm+

The most commonly used combinations are:

  • 135mm skirting with 90mm architrave
  • 185mm skirting with 90mm architrave

 

How do I choose the best heights for my skirting and widths for my architrave?

What is the difference between primed and unprimed skirting and architraves?

Primed or Un-primed? Put simply, primed mouldings are those that have been coated with a primer before leaving our factory. After they have been installed, they then only need painting with your final colour. This is fast becoming the preferred option as it saves time and money for the end user. Extra lead time must be allowed for if you choose this option. Normally it will add only a few days to your expected delivery date.
