Maximise practicality without compromising on style
All the skirting boards in this range are manufactured using the finest quality European oak. Although slightly more expensive than engineered wood with a solid wood veneer, solid oak has a multitude of qualities. Oak is a medium-density hardwood, but its durability and strength far exceed that of other woods.
Oak requires very little maintenance and is extremely versatile, commonly used for furniture, flooring, joinery, veneers and panelling. Oak also stains and polishes well and is highly resistant to wear and tear. This makes it perfect for the construction of skirting boards, which are prone to damage from accidental knocks, foot traffic and bumps from children's toys, bikes and pushchairs. Our skirting boards are all produced in-house and are manufactured using high-quality materials and expert craftsmanship. All the hardwood we used is ethically sourced.
We sell a range of skirting board styles. All our skirting boards are delivered unfinished, allowing our customers to paint or stain them to compliment the interior of their home. The solid oak used in the manufacture of our skirting boards is classified as having a “light character” grain of oak. We offer skirting boards in Chamfer, Bull Nose, Torus, Shaker and Ogee profiles. Searching for something subtle? We recommend the Bull Nose profile skirting board. If you’re looking to stand out, try a Torus or Ogee skirting board. Our Ogee and Torus profile boards feature small grooves and make a stylish addition to any property.

Solid oak skirting boards FAQs
We always recommend that our customers use skirting boards in their homes. From an aesthetic perspective, skirting boards are a fantastic way to hide unsightly blemishes. Traditionally, they were used to conceal the junction between the bottom of a wall and floor, as wet plaster often left the wall looking untidy. From a practical point of view, skirting boards provide valuable protection against everyday wear and tear. They also behave as a barrier to moisture ingress from walls and project against dust build-up.
Solid oak may seem expensive, but it is a great investment. Durable, stylish and versatile, oak has been used in the manufacture of furniture and joinery for centuries. It is easy to paint and stain, making it perfect for those wishing to add a personal flair to the interior of their property.
All our skirting boards are delivered unfinished, giving the customers the freedom to customise them. They must be sealed and finished prior to use to prevent staining or damage. If using oil, we recommend using a paintbrush to apply a thin layer of oil to the board. Use a cloth to wipe away any excess, and leave the door to dry. Colour stain, lacquer or oil can be used.
Solid oak is extremely durable and requires very little maintenance, but should be cleaned occasionally. Use a damp cloth and wipe the surface of the skirting board, moving in the direction of the grain. If stains persist, try combining two parts olive oil with one part vinegar. This is most effective when applied with a spray bottle. Use a clean, soft cloth to rub the solution into the surface of the wood.
