What is the height option for?The Height Option

This option is chosen when you are purchasing MDF skirting boards (or pine skirtings!). It allows you to select how tall you want the skirting to be.

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.
