Big, Bold & Beautiful – Skirts & Wall Panels


Skirting boards, base boards or ‘skirts’ as they have been referred to recently were once overlooked as a necessary functional piece of wood placed at the bottom of the wall to protect it from damage when you bang the vacuum into it.

They also covered the gap between the wall and the floor, and were small, and uninteresting. Recently, skirting boards have become the hottest accessory for designers and homeowners looking to make some serious cost-effective impact in their renovation or new build projects with big, bold & beautiful designs creating some serious wow factor, and teams up with Wall Panelling create a design masterpiece.

BIG architraves and super tall skirting boards was selected by renovation royalty Naomi Findlay for  her recent NSW cottage renovation at Waukivory Estate. Traditional ‘Colonial’ style was replaced by a relaxed ‘Country / Cottage’ look. The bold statement 285mm high Intrim SK41 skirting boards are a major feature of this project, providing scale for the tall ceilings.

Sleek Contemporary design has even taken a bold step with Intrim Shadowline® SK800 skirting boards used as a bold architectural feature as show in this staircase.

The shift to larger timber mouldings profiles and more consideration of the shape to suite the style of project has meant that buying a standard commodity design off the shelf isn’t the preferred choice for most designers and builders. With a vast selection of shapes and size options the shift to buying ‘made to order’ has become standard as the profile shape and size is moulded from a timber blank in the quantity you need to reduce wastage. This method allows a quick yet cost effective Australian supply of finely crafted quality timber mouldings designed for Australian homes.
