17 Ways to Play with the Height and Color of the Baseboard.

The skirting board is not a useless detail! Find out how details and finishes can give value to walls and floors.

February 15th 2018

The skirting board, also called baseboard, is a practical and functional element because it covers the point of connection between the wall and the floor, avoiding the onset of dust and the risk that this will subside under the wall. Moreover, it is a practical solution if there are imperfections to hide. It also has the task of protecting the wall from possible signs, caused for example by furniture that would otherwise rest directly on the wall.

You do not want to renounce the practicality of the skirting board, but do you love a style with clean lines? Are you looking for an original idea? Opt for customization by choosing how to redefine the angle between the wall and the floor. Look at these solutions and let yourself be inspired: you will discover that the skirting can furnish your rooms and enhance your home!

You can place the skirting in other anonymous and impersonal spots in the home. The balcony of your internal staircase is an example: the baseboard seems to continue along the upper ends, creating in this way also a practical handrail.

If the walls are white and the parquet floor is clear, you can opt for a dark wood skirting for a game of contrasts that emphasizes the profiles.
