Put your old skirting board to good use.

Unfortunately, as we all know you’re not able to reuse skirting boards once they’ve been taken off the wall as often they are damaged in removal but don’t be disheartened. Although you will have you order new skirting boards you can use a skirting board in a few other situations so it doesn’t completely go to waste. It can be used as kindling for your fire to keep you warm in this awful weather at the moment. It can also be used as scrap wood to fix other things on your DIY project list. Along with that a skirting board can also be used to help make a rabbits cage or run but don’t forget to remove any nails still attacked or any glue. Don’t forget that best thing you can do in any situation is think outside the box so that you make the best decision. So go on purchase some new skirting boards and put your old ones to go use.

Spice up your life with new skirting boards

When you’re redecorating or changing your carpet don’t forget once you’ve taken off the skirting boards it’s not really possible to use them again as a skirting board. Often they’ll get damaged when being pulled off so make sure you’ve taken the cost of new skirting boards into account when you price up having a new floor laid or having your room redecorated. Having said this although it is an additional expense which sometimes you could do without when you’re already paying for other stuff it’s nice to have a completely fresh look and you’d be surprised at how different a room can look with new skirting boards. I would expect you’ve got white painted skirting board all around your house right? It’s common but why not try having a simple non-painted high wooden skirting board for a bit of modern elegance.

Get the kids helping you with skirting boards

This horrible weather really makes it difficult to get the family out for the day and if you don’t force the children out of the house you’ll often find them sat in front of the television or playing on a computer game which is never good for them. If you’re struggling to keep the kids entertained without a screen in front of them have you thought about getting them to help you with little jobs around the house? Although they may moan at first it’s good for them to appreciate how much work needs to be done around the house. I’m not telling you to treat them like slaves but they can also end up being really proud of the hard work they’ve put into completing a tack, especially if it’s a ‘grown ups’ job! If you’re fitting skirting boards this weekend why not get them to help. Skirting boards aren’t heavy so it’s not like they’ll struggle to handle a skirting board and if you’re securing them to the wall with glue there is no reason why they can’t get their hands dirty. As the skirting board shouldn’t really need changing they won’t need to be involved with heavy tools so get them involved this weekend! Let us know how you get on 🙂

Skirting Boards don’t have to be boring

When it comes to skirting boards I always used to thing there was only one type of skirting board, I suppose I’d never looked too closely. Until I really cared about what went in my home I just saw it as something which was put against the wall at the bottom. Now I appreciate that different skirting boards suit different periods in the home. Different sizes can look in different situations too and you can really take pride in a good quality skirting.
