​ The benefits of MDF moulding skirting boards

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

Skirting boards are a common fixture in most homes and choosing a suitable design can complement an interior space beautifully. Skirting boards are made in a variety of materials and provide a hardwearing baseline protection for interior walls. A popular and affordable option for skirting boards in your home is MDF moulding. This versatile material has many benefits both functionally and aesthetically, and it pairs perfectly with a range of floor finishes.

MDF moulding skirting boards

Take a look at some of the key advantages of choosing MDF moulding skirting boards and why they are an ideal option for all types of homes.

Long lasting MDF moulding material

MDF moulding is made for longevity and offers a hardwearing yet decorative element to your home. The surface of MDF mouldings provides a smooth finish, which can be easily painted to match your interior design. Unlike other skirting board materials such as pine and oak, MDF will not expand, contract or warp so it creates a professional, sturdy and reliable look throughout.

Preventing damage

One of the key advantages of having skirting boards in your living spaces is to keep your rooms looking good. MDF moulding skirting boards provide a tough barrier between the walls and furniture, and also prevent knocks – for example when you are vacuuming a room or if you have small children running around!

Covering blemishes or wiring

In properties new and old, there are elements of untidy paintwork or unsightly wiring especially along the bottom edge or corners of a room. MDF moulding skirting board is an ideal option for covering these common problems and provides an affordable way to give a smoother finish to your décor.

Filling gaps

Even in modern houses, there can be a few millimetres difference between walls and flooring, creating gaps. To overcome this, MDF moulding skirting boards provide a simple solution for covering these gaps, whilst creating an aesthetically pleasing look.

Complementing interior design

Skirting boards are ideal for making a room look and feel complete. They are available in a range of profiles and sizes, which work perfectly in both traditional and contemporary homes. Simple and sleek MDF mouldings appeal to modern aesthetics whilst decorative skirting styles such as Torus and Ogee boards can offer a classic look for period properties.

Easy to install and low maintenance

Skirting boards are easy to install and come in a variety of finishes, which enable you to paint or prime them as you wish. This low maintenance and affordable decorative feature is long lasting and easy to replace if it becomes damaged. They can also be painted in situ if you decide to revamp your décor post installation.
