Frequently asked questions

How much does mouldings cost? How should I budget for skirting & architraves for my build?

There are many factors that will affect the total price of your project. Understanding the differences between the material costs & labour costs, and the combination of these factors along with the scale of the project, the number of rooms, the size of the rooms, and the complexity will determine how much you will need to budget.
Material costs – The type of material used (FJ Pine, MDF or other hardwoods), the size of the timber moulding profiles height & thickness, the finish (raw or primed), and quantity per profile will determine the price. When selecting a design the price will not vary if all these factors remain unchanged.
Labour costs – Installation work is generally carried out by a professional tradesperson/carpenter. They will generally work on an hourly basis, and the rates may vary based on your location. The skirting installation cost of labour ranges from $68 to $107 per hour depending on the city or State of the project. Decorative skirting boards need to be scribed in each corner to provide a neat finish. This is done by hand by a skilled carpenter and can add significant time to the project. The end result is spectacular and well worth the investment. You can further speed up the insulation time by 45% with FAST TRIM®. This Intrim exclusive prescribed skirting and pre-mitred architrave system provides a high precision machine finish that saves time & money making decorative skirting and architraves now even more affordable.

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?

Do skirting boards 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 that 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
