Originally designed to fill the gap between wall and floor and protect walls from dirt and damage, skirting boards have evolved to provide a more decorative finish to a home. While older homes may feature skirting boards that are ornate and elaborate in design, modern skirting boards are simple and elegant.
In architecture, a baseboard (also called skirting board, skirting, mopboard, floor moulding, as well as base moulding) is a (generally wooden) board covering the lowest part of an interior wall. Its purpose is to cover the joint between the wall surface and the floor. It covers the uneven edge of flooring next to the wall; protects the wall from kicks, abrasion, and furniture; and can serve as a decorative moulding. At its simplest, baseboard consists of a simple plank nailed, screwed or glued to the wall; however, particularly in older houses, it can be made up of a number of mouldings for decoration.
Skirtings are an attractive feature in any room and are very easy to install. Removing old skirtings may be the time-consuming, but it’s well worth taking your time to work carefully and cause as little damage as possible to the wall and floor surfaces.
