The Home Of Skirting Boards And Architrave
We are a company based in Birmingham in the UK and we deliver skirting boards and architrave all over the country. We provide you with the cheapest quotations without compromising on quality - here at Skirting World we take pride in our work. With a huge range of profile designs and a wide selection of sizes, we have everything to suit your needs - from a piece of fancy skirting board to a bulk order of MDF skirting boards.
Why Choose MDF Skirting Boards?
MDF has quickly become the standard material to use for skirting boards throughout the UK. A skirting board made from MDF is free of impurities and will last much longer than your average softwood skirting boards. Should you need a skirting board that is moisture resistant, we offer the superior HDF material in 4200mm lengths (5400mm selected range) at competitive prices. All of our skirting boards have a matching architrave so you can have a consistent look throughout your home. If you have any questions regarding our products on offer, do not hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team here at Skirting World.
We use only the best quality materials including MDF, HDF and Pine and we custom make all of our products to order. If you're looking for skirting boards and architraves at the best prices on the web, look no further than
Skirting World Take Pride In Their Work...
Not only do we make sure that all of our materials are sourced responsibly and are of the highest quality possible, our manufacturing process is just as important. Our specialist team take the MDF through it's transformation from a sheet to skirting boards (or architraves) from start to finish. The sheets are inspected for impurities and then cut down to the intended size (height of the skirting boards, width of architraves, etc.). Once this has been completed, one of our machinists run the board through our moulding machine or spindle to cut away the chosen design. Another visual inspection is made before the boards are passed to the spray room where our in house french polisher applies to layers of primer to the skirting (if ordered as primed). The boards are hand sanded between coats and once fully dry, a denibbing machine is used to make the finished product smooth and ready for a final layer of paint.
Before wrapping ready for transport, another visual inspection takes place. Once our team are happy with the finished products, the wrapping team use cardboard edge protection and shrink wrap to ensure they are secure and ready to be loaded to the van for delivery. And voila! You will receive your order and can install it straight away. Don't forget - match your skirting boards with your architraves by choosing the same design (it'll look great!).
When it comes to skirting board designs, we have a lot to offer. We also provide a bespoke service if you need something extra special.

We now sell 15mm skirting boards!

Posted by Skirting World on 25th Nov 2013

Perfect if you're looking for thin skirting boards

We're proud to announce that in addition to our 18mm and 25mm skirting boards, we now sell them in 15mm too along with matching 15mm architraves - if it's thin skirting you're after, look no further!

Thin skirting is modern

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.

Thin skirting boards are lightweight

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.
