Before I started working at Skirting 4 U, I never really thought too much about skirting board or architrave (I didn’t even know what architrave was). They just seem to be something I needed to apply that horrible sticky gloss paint to during the decorating process.
Skirting board is not only seen as a protective measure for walls but also part of the interior design scheme. Therefore, we’ve seen an increased demand for different designs rather than the traditional bullnose look.

There are three main reasons why Bullnose skirting board is so popular:
Manufacturing one design of skirting board is a lot cheaper and cost-effective than making multiple different styles. As skirting boards weren’t seen as key interior design pieces, demand for creative profiles was low. Therefore, it didn’t make sense to create multiple different options.
The Bullnose style is minimal and the curved design works well with most interiors. This also makes it easier for the homeowner to clean as there are no grooves or additional indents where it can gather dust. For the safety conscious amongst us, there are also no sharp corners which could cause harm to children.
Easy for builders to work with
To complete a good skirting board fit, the lengths need to be scribed to fit them together as neatly as possible. Using a simple profile like bullnose helps make this process a lot easier and reduces the time it takes to complete the fit. This makes the design a cost-effective solution when fitting out multiple buildings.
Manufacturers like us offer a greater choice of styles for skirting board, this is due to the demand of designers looking for bold new ways to bring rooms alive. Modern designs such as Square Groove, Stepped and Bullnose Groove 2 is becoming increasingly popular.
Bullnose skirting board is still a top-selling style, however, more and more people are becoming adventurous with their choices.
