Oak Skirting Boards Are Manufactured In Various Shapes

Traditional, rounded-edge profiles evoke a timeless charm. The gentle curves of classic profiles add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any interior. They seamlessly blend with various design styles, from vintage to contemporary.

For a modern and minimalist appeal, square-edged or flat profiles are ideal. Their sleek lines and sharp angles create a seamless transition between the wall and floor, enhancing the overall clean and uncluttered look of the space.

Stepped skirting board profiles offer a subtle design twist. With distinct levels or tiers, they add depth and visual interest to walls while maintaining a contemporary vibe. This style works well in both modern and transitional interiors.

Chamfered or bevelled edge profiles feature angled cuts along the top edges. This design detail adds dimension to the skirting boards, giving them a refined and distinctive appearance that can enhance both classic and contemporary interiors.

A Variety Of Finishes Of Oak Skirting Boards

The innate beauty of oak shines through with a natural finish. A clear varnish or oil allows the wood’s grain patterns and warm tones to take centre stage, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that enhances any interior style.

Staining oak skirting boards offers an opportunity to customise the colour to match or contrast with the flooring or other design elements. From deep ebony to light honey, stained finishes cater to various colour palettes and design visions.

Distressed finishes add character and a touch of rustic charm. Techniques like wire brushing or hand-scraping create textured surfaces that simulate the patina of aged wood, perfect for farmhouse or vintage-inspired interiors.

While oak’s natural beauty often shines best, painted finishes can be used to create a focal point or to match specific color schemes. A painted skirting board in a bold colour can add a pop of personality to a space.

Ecowood’s oak skirting boards, with their diverse shapes and finishes, offer a canvas for design expression. Whether aiming for classic elegance, modern sleekness, or rustic allure, these versatile elements can be tailored to suit any interior concept while contributing to the overall beauty and functionality of the space.
