Skirting boards, also known as baseboards or kickboards, are an essential element in interior design, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits. They cover the joint between the wall and the floor, offering a polished look to any room. Intco Decor offers a range of high-quality skirting boards, including PS, PVC, and MDF options, each with unique features and benefits.

Functional Benefits of Skirting Boards


Skirting boards protect walls from damage caused by furniture, vacuum cleaners, and other objects. They prevent scuffs, dents, and marks, maintaining the wall’s appearance and integrity over time. This is especially important in high-traffic areas where walls are more susceptible to wear and tear.


Skirting boards help conceal unsightly gaps and imperfections where the wall meets the floor. They also hide wiring and cables, creating a cleaner and more organized look. This is particularly useful in modern homes where technology integration is common.

Easy Installation

One of the key selling points of Intco Decor’s skirting boards is their ease of installation. Whether you are a DIY enthusiast or a professional installer, our skirting boards come with accessories like nail-free glue and plastic buckles, making the process straightforward and hassle-free.

Types of Skirting Boards

Easy to install and non-formaldehyde, MDF skirting boards are a practical and safe option for any home. Their smooth finish and consistent quality make them a popular choice among homeowners and designers alike.

Skirting Board Installation

Installing skirting boards is a relatively simple process, especially with Intco Decor’s user-friendly products. Here are some basic steps to guide you:

  1. Measure and Cut: Measure the length of the walls where the skirting boards will be installed. Cut the skirting boards to the required length using a saw.
  2. Prepare the Wall: Ensure the wall is clean and free of any obstructions. If necessary, remove old skirting boards and repair any damage to the wall.
  3. Attach the Skirting Board: Apply nail-free glue to the back of the skirting board and press it firmly against the wall. Use plastic buckles for additional support if required.
  4. Finishing Touches: Once the skirting boards are in place, use caulk to fill any gaps between the skirting board and the wall or floor. This will create a seamless finish.

Floor skirting is an essential aspect of interior design, providing a smooth transition between different types of flooring and the walls.
