Skirting boards are an important finishing touch to any room, providing a neat and attractive border between the floor and the wall. Installing skirting boards can be a DIY project for those with some experience in carpentry, and can be done with a few basic tools and materials. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install skirting boards:

  1. Measure the length of the wall where the skirting board will be installed. It is important to get an accurate measurement, so use a tape measure and measure in multiple places along the wall to ensure that it is straight.

  2. Choose the type of skirting board you want to install. Our range of Skirting boards come in a variety of sizes, styles, and profiles. Choose one that matches your room's decor and suits your budget.

  3. Purchase the skirting board and the necessary tools and materials. You will need a saw, hammer, nails, wood filler, sandpaper, a pencil, and a level.

  4. Cut the skirting board to the correct length. Use a saw to cut the skirting board to the right length according to the measurements you took earlier. Be sure to cut the skirting board at a 45-degree angle at each end so that they will fit together neatly in the corners of the room.

  5. Sand the edges of the skirting board. Use sandpaper to smooth the edges of the skirting board where it was cut to make it easier to fit together.

  6. Mark the wall for the height of the skirting board. Use a pencil and a level to mark a line on the wall where the top of the skirting board will be.

  7. Attach the skirting board to the wall. Place the skirting board against the wall, making sure it is level and aligned with the mark you made earlier. Use a hammer and nails to attach the skirting board to the wall, making sure to drive the nails in at an angle so they go through the skirting board and into the wall.

  8. Repeat steps 4-7 for each section of the wall. Cut, sand, mark, and attach each section of the skirting board to the wall until the entire room is covered.

  9. Fill any gaps or nail holes. Use wood filler to fill any gaps between the skirting board and the wall, as well as any nail holes. Allow the filler to dry and sand it smooth.

  10. Paint or finish the skirting board. Once the filler is dry, you can paint or finish the skirting board to match the rest of the room.

In conclusion, installing skirting boards is a relatively straightforward DIY project that can be accomplished with some basic tools and materials. By following these steps, you can give your room a polished, finished look that will enhance its overall appearance.
