Skirting boards are decorative trim pieces that are installed along the bottom edge of a wall. They are typically made from wood, but can also be made from other materials such as MDF, PVC, or plaster. Skirting boards serve both a decorative and functional purpose by covering the gap between the wall and the floor, hiding any imperfections or unevenness in the wall, and protecting the wall from damage and scuffing. They can also help to reduce drafts and noise in a room. Skirting boards come in a variety of styles, materials, and profiles, and can be chosen to match the design and style of the room in which they are installed.
Architrave is a decorative moulding that is used to frame doors and windows. It is typically made from wood or similar material and is installed around the perimeter of the door or window opening. Architrave is usually wider than the door or window itself and consists of three main parts: the head, which sits above the door or window; the jambs, which are located on either side of the door or window; and the sill, which sits below the door or window. Architrave can be simple and understated, or it can be more ornate and decorative, depending on the design of the building and the personal preferences of the homeowner. In addition to its decorative function, architrave can also help to hide any imperfections or unevenness in the wall around the door or window opening.
