Skirting

Skirting Boards

Skirting is a strip (generally wooden), covering the lowest part of an interior wall. Its purpose is to cover the joint between the wall surface and the floor. It covers the uneven edge as flooring meets the wall; skirting protects the wall from kicks, abrasion and furniture; and can serve as a decorative moulding.
