If you’re giving your home a few fresh coats of paint, don’t forget your skirting boards. Easily overlooked, they’re just as important as your walls, ceilings, doors and window frames in making your home sparkle. If you've just moved in, or have recently moved lots of furniture, it can be easy to scuff or scratch the skirting boards.
Similar to painting any part of your home, there’s a lot of prep work to be done before the actual painting can begin. Your skirting boards will need to be cleaned, sanded and, if the wood is new, primed.
And don’t forget to spend some time picking the exact colour you’d like. Keeping your skirting boards the same colour as your walls will give your home a consistent feel. The general rule of thumb is that darker skirting boards give a modern feel, and lighter ones will make a room seem larger. A lot of people go for white as it’s a simple colour that works well.
With a lot of DIY, it can be hard to get exactly right if you’re not an expert, so we recommend a professional decorator who knows precisely what they’re doing. They’ll know all the right materials to use, have the necessary tools and tons of experience. Plus, you can talk to them before the job starts to give them specific, precise details you want them to know.
When it comes to decorating, you don’t want to rely on someone’s reputation alone. We have hundreds of skilled professionals on our platform and can match you with a local decorator in minutes. All you need to do is tell us where you are and we’ll do the rest.
We vet every tradesperson and take our customer feedback seriously. So when we match you with a decorator, we know they’ll paint your skirting boards safely and to the highest industry standard. We also guarantee their work for 12 months.
