What is the height option for?
How do I know which height to choose?
The average height for skirting boards throughout the UK is 145mm (approximately 6 inches). When it comes to choosing the height for your skirting, it comes down to personal preference. We have found that our most popular sizes range from 120mm (approximately 5 inches) up to 220mm (approximately 9 inches).
Will the design change size if I change the height of the skirting board?
No, the design never changes size. Here's an example:
The Ovolo design is approximately 50mm. If you choose a 70mm skirting, the design will still be 50mm and there will be 20mm of plain material underneath it. If you choose a 195mm skirting, the design will still be 50mm and there will be 145mm of plain material underneath it.
All of the skirting board images on the product pages show a skirting board at approximately 150mm tall (6 inches). Please bear this in mind when choosing a skirting board height.
