Modern Contemporary / Art Deco
Intrim Group is committed to sourcing and supplying timber for our mouldings only from well-managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits to the communities and people who manage them.
Intrim SK805 Shadowline® system skirting board and architraves is designed to be installed prior to wall plastering to provide a flush finish. This style of moulding is recommended for use in a Modern Contemporary / Art Deco style interior.
SK805 is 12mm thick suiting 10mm plasterboard, has a Shadowline groove that is 5mm high x 5mm deep, and available in 65mm, 90mm, 110mm, 160mm, 205mm and 260mm visible heights. Samples are available for this profile.
Unlike traditional skirting boards, the height dimensions on Shadowline are now shown as the visible height to the top of the Shadowline Groove (A). This allows you to measure up from the floor to select your profile sizes. The actual material is much higher than the visible size, as the top section of the skirting board sits behind the plasterboard. Refer to the diagram and Shadowline table of dimensions to help you select the size that best suits your requirements.
Intrim SK805 Shadowline® is specially crafted in a range of timbers including FJ Pine Primed and MR MDF Primed. Intrim’s timber mouldings are available pre primed, helping you save even more time on your project. Please note 205mm and 260mm heights are available in MDF only.

Traditionally the skirting board was developed to hide the junction between floor and plastered wall. Plaster often developed cracks and rough edges and the skirting board was a neat way to cover this up. As well, it covers the rough ends of carpet.
Over time the skirting board came to achieve additional benefits such as preventing drafts, hiding electrical equipment and providing a barrier to protect walls from the daily activity of kids, pets, vacuum cleaners and general traffic.
However, beyond mere functionality a skirting board now provides an aesthetic completeness
While it is true that other elements of home design are larger in terms of impact, getting the design of your skirting boards right makes a big difference. They frequently act as a conduit in blending colour and style themes between rooms. They ensure your objective of consistency and a décor that is pleasing to the eye.
The factors to consider therefore are 1) style, 2) colour, 3) material and 4) finish. All these details need to be combined as they add up to the perfect decorative completion of your build or renovation.
What style of skirting is right for you? Determine your style is a great place to start.
Contemporary or period?
In modern homes often a plain, minimalist skirting board without intricate detail will work.
But it is possible that a period style will too, especially when great care is taken with its colour and by teaming it with the right furniture and furnishings.
It is important to note though that this will not apply in the reverse scenario, i.e. a contemporary skirting in a period home, because they mostly have other features such as door or wall trims and dado rails that must be matched.
It is all about getting the balance right!
Take for example Georgian and Victorian style homes. These mostly have tall and airy rooms – some up to 3 metres – which will accommodate high and more ornate skirtings.
Then Edwardian homes, which are not quite so spacious. Or the contemporary home with a 2.4 metre ceiling height. Skirtings for these must be kept in proportion, not only with the height of the ceilings but the size of the room.
Skirting styles cannot be mixed and matched in different rooms, adjacent corridors and certainly not in the same room! Some traditional or period style skirtings have such distinctive ridges and mouldings that this would not be possible anyway.
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:
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?
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.
The following is a guide:
The colour scheme you choose is a big factor in achieving the desired result – a pleasing overall look – with either coloured or neutral toned skirting boards. Here are some ideas:
When choosing your skirting boards & architraves you need to analyse how much traffic the skirting is going to have to cope with and how soon you may need to replace them. Plus in an addition or renovation, how are they going to look adjacent to existing rooms?
Also consider the aesthetics of the finished room, so consider other features such as chair rails, picture rails, wainscoting and other wall panelling designs.
Keeping to a budget? A cost-saving option is to reduce the skirting thickness without altering its height. This can often give you the profile you want but at a cheaper price. We estimate that while skirtings and architraves are less than 1.2% of the overall project costs, the impact they make and the value they add is far greater.
Aim for consistency. Practicality, longevity and aesthetics combined throughout your project will give you years of satisfaction. Skirtings must flow whether in corridors or adjoining rooms. They make far more impact than you may have thought!
The difference between a Skirting board and Architrave is the location and the size. The Skirting board is designed to be fitted around the perimeter of a room, fixed to the wall where it meets the floor. An Architrave, however is usually a smaller width than the skirting board, and is fitted around the windows and doorways to cover where the wooden frame meets the plasterboard.
To accurately work this out, you will need to measure the rooms, doorways and window frames. To learn how to do this see the guide here.
We also offer a free take-off service for our account customers, where we work out the requirements for you. Simply submit your project details, plans & window schedule. Learn more here.
