Butt the architrave and skirting together.

Make sure you line the outside edge (groove side) of architrave with the top edge (groove side) of skirting. Mark the width of architrave, e.g. 90mm, onto the end of skirting. (Figure 2)

Tips to create a continuous Shadowline detail with Intrim SK342 skirting
Tip 1

The scribing profile can be hard to install so you may want to cut ends into a square.

Tip 2

We recommend Finger Joint Pine over MDF as FJ Pine holds the line better on the wall and will make a crooked wall look straight unlike MDF which is more flexible and moulds to the wall.
