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.

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 mdfskirtingworld.co.uk.
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.

What's the purpose of a skirting board?

What's the purpose of a skirting board?

Posted by Skirting World on 16th Jan 2014

Skirting boards have been around for many years (known as a baseboard in the USA) and have quite a few purposes.

They make a room look much more appealing to the eye: most of the time, there is a gap where a wall meets a floor. This can be unsightly and so a skirting board would be used to cover this up and give it a much higher quality finished look. You can choose from a wide variety of designs when it comes to skirting boards nowadays as they are also seen as a decorative piece of the household interior.

They protect the bottom of the wall from scuffs and scrapes: if you've ever hoovered in your life, you'll know that you have to go all the way up to the wall and this means there will be contact between the wall and the hoover. Without skirting boards, your precious walls would probably be reduced to rubble in very little time. Add children with toys to the mix and the skirting boards are a must as they'll take the brunt of the damage.
