A lot of traditional skirting is much thicker than the standard sizes we produce these days. We often find that when customers are trying to match exisiting skirting, it's made out of timber and is anywhere between 25mm and 50mm thick!
To get a much more modern look and feel, you can use our thin 15mm skirting. It uses up a lot less space than traditional skirting, creating more floor space for you and your furniture.
If you're fitting the skirting by yourself (maybe you're a keen DIYer?), you'll make it a lot easier for yourself if you use 15mm thick MDF. It's available in 3050mm lengths making it more manouverable than the 4200mm lengths and because it's thinner, it's lightweight and puts less strain on your body.
Overall, we have 76 different designs on our website for you to choose from. When it comes to 15mm, there is 63 to choose from! This is because some of the designs simply cannot be put on a 15mm thick piece of board as the profile was either too deep and made the design too weak or the top of the design was too thin that it would completely disappear on a thinner board.
