What is Floor Skirting?

A floor skirting is a small piece of material placed on the sides of all flooring, rested against the wall for the purpose of aesthetically pleasing termination. While some flooring does not come with skirting, most floorings are accompanied by skirting made of similar material. Wood flooring is often accompanied by wood skirting.

Why is Floor Skirting Important For Your Home?

Protects The Wall

Have you noticed any marks on walls caused by old furniture? Take a look at the marks, and you’ll see that in these particular regions, there was no flooring skirting at all. Floor skirting creates a valuable space between flooring, furniture, and the wall, which is essential for long-term security from the house walls.

Covers Gaps Between Flooring & Wall

Sometimes, it appears like the flooring in your home isn’t installed correctly since there is an apparent gap between the flooring and the wall. Before calling your contractor and complaining, ensure that the gaps are made to allow for an expansion and contraction in flooring.

Floor skirting is used to hide these tiny spaces to create seamless flooring.

Beautifies A Home

Floor skirting is a great way to make an impact on an empty wall and can brighten up an otherwise dull house. It could be considered an aesthetic feature of the house’s interior if done with care.


How Do You Select The Right Wood Skirting Material?

The material of the wood skirting usually follows the materials of the wood flooring. Both wood flooring and wood skirting are also usually varnished in the same colour to make them look as seamless as possible. There are also several different sizes of skirting catering to the different sizes of the wood flooring strips.

Standard wood skirting sizes are as the following:

  • 70 mm x 10 mm (3 inches)
  • 95 mm x 10 mm (4 inches)

Standard Teak wood flooring sizes are as the following:

  • 73 mm x 11 mm (3 inches)
  • 95 mm x 11 mm (4 inches)

Burmese Teak wood flooring with size 73 mm is usually accompanied by 70 mm skirting. Similarly, Burmese Teak wood flooring with size 95 mm is usually accompanied by 95 mm skirting.
