So when you take a look at our wonderful selection of wood flooring, deciding that this is the way to go, its then you need to think that you may want to have matching skirting, or mouldings or threshholds, just to make the floor look complete! Skirting boards and mouldings are often used around the perimeter of rooms to cover the expansion gap between floor and wall All of our skirting, mouldings, trims, and thresholds are manufactured from solid prime grade oak, and are finished in a natural oil, lacquer, or left unfinished. We can also stain match all of our oak skirting & mouldings to match your flooring or furniture. Also to compliment your flooring there is a wonderful selection of different profiled skirting boards, all made to order from the very best solid prime grade oak. The heights vary from 75mm-170mm, and they come in taurus, ogee, chamfered, plain square edge, bullnose, and castle profiles. All our skirting boards can be stain matched if required, and we even have all profiles available white primed made from tulip wood. Phew! Now there’s quite a selection to choose from! If you require something a little more minimalistic than skirting boards then we have a selection of scotia, perimeter, or quadrant mouldings to choose from. Theory of Mouldings!
At their simplest, moldings are a means of applying light and dark shaded stripes to a structure or object without having to change the material or apply pigment. The contrast of dark and light areas gives definition between the floor and the skirting. Oak skirting
Imagine the vertical surface of a wall lit by sunlight at an angle of about 45 degrees above the wall. A concave molding against the wall will produce a horizontal shadow that is darker at the top and lighter at the bottom, whereas convex molding will cause the shadow to be lighter at the top and darker at the bottom.
