Skirting & Architraves

Principality Plastics Skirting & Architraves
At Principality Plastics you can buy new skirting boards and architraves to provide protection for your plasters or wallpaper. This is an opportunity to add a design flourish to your home decor. It doesn't take long for them to lose that newly fitted sheen and start looking tired before their time.

Skirting boards - permanently in the firing line at floor level - can quickly pick up chips and scuffs from feet, furniture and the rough and tumble of family life.

Architraves can get their fair share of knocks too, particularly around the doors in busier areas of the house. And in kitchens and bathrooms in particular, heat and moisture can quickly warp and discolour both skirting boards and architrave. These are essential items for any household, providing a cost-effective low maintenance solution that always stays bright and will never deteriorate.

Why Should you install Skirting Boards?

The main functionality of a skirting board is to protect walls from damage. In high traffic areas, where walls are more likely to be hit and become damaged, skirting boards are great durable solutions to withstand this damage than exposed plaster. So, the next time you’re vacuuming, playing with children, moving furniture around, you’ll be less concerned about damaging your pristine walls.

Skirting boards are also a great design feature, giving you a great finish to your rooms. Skirting boards are also great opportunity to play around with more colour options that perhaps wouldn’t be possible if skirting boards weren’t present.

With so many reasons to install Skirting boards, explore the ones available to you here at Principality Plastics. Skirting board suppliers such as our range Emafyl and Deeplas would be perfect for any room in your house.

Why Should you install Architraves?

Architraves are a common household feature. However, they are hidden in plain sight and usually we don’t take much notice of them. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your home, or just want to do a little decorating, then architraves are actually very important.

An architrave can add the finishing touches to your room, but they are much more than just a decorative piece. They hold a function; where the architrave is installed, there is a joint between the wall/ceiling casing around the door. The purpose of the architrave for doors is to hide that joint and any following shrinkage and movement between the two.

Therefore, the importance of Architraves for your home can’t be underestimated. With so many options available to you, explore the Deeplas Door Architraves and UPVC architraves we have on offer here at Principality Plastics.

The benefits of Skirtings & Architraves

Skirting Boards

One of the major reasons why homeowners find PVC skirting boards attractive aren’t just the prices but the low maintenance they require. Timber alternatives tend to lose their visual appeal from wear and tear and worrying about minor bumps and scrapes can be tiresome.

There are quite a few other benefits:

• Easy to install
• Robust material
• PVC skirting is glued to walls – leaving no permanent marks
• Skirting suppliers tend to say PVC skirting boards look the same as new for at least a decade
• Don’t have to paint skirting boards ever again
• Moisture resistant – don’t attract mould or mildew
• Fire resistant
• Provide thermal insulation
• A choice of different finishes and styles
• Scratch resistant

A major reason to fit UPVC architraves rather than traditional timber or MDF is because its 50% quicker to fit. This is because they don’t need to be sanded or cut down. They also help with tricky corner joint mitring.

To keep them looking great, an occasional wipe will suffice. This can be done with a cheap damp cloth, keeping the dust at bay. They also come in different colours and finishes to match whatever the design of your rooms.

Not only that, but plastic architraves don’t suffer from swelling from spills, woodworm or require painting (however, you can if you wish).
