The most common mouldings in any house are skirting boards and architraves. However, not many people are aware of the differences in the materials used to make them. Unless you are well-up on your interior design knowledge, it can be easy to make mistakes when choosing your materials.
Skirting boards and architraves are first and foremost a practical mould offering protection from impact and covering imperfect edging where floors and doors meet walls. Traditionally they are made from wood (usually the cheaper species such as white deal) or MDF. Decoration is kept simple, with “Torus” and “Ogee” being the most popular styles.
Due to the locations of skirting and architrave they are often subjected to a lot of wear and tear and both wood and MDF are known to deteriorate quickly. MDF in particular does not like water so the mopping of wooden floors does not help!
