UNDERESTIMATED ELEMENTS OF ROOM DESIGN

“Skirting boards fulfill a crucial function: They are the connecting element between wall and floor covering. Thus, they protect the wall when cleaning the room, cover uneven floors and adapt to irregular walls. Variable skirtings, like C 60 or S 66 of Döllken, give the customer great freedom to choose from a large range of designs by inserting infills of floor coverings or carpets.”

Skirting boards often offer underestimated possibilities to put the finishing touch to room design. Variable skirtings like C 60 or S 66 of the wellknown manufacturer Döllken-Weimar, give the customer great freedom to choose from a large range of designs by inserting infills of floor coverings or carpets. This potential of dealers and fitters is still used far too little. They could present themselves to customers as design-orientated consultants and problem solvers.

Every human being has different preferences and ideas. Therefore, every flat looks different. Only think of the manifold floor coverings: wood, laminate, textile, ceramic or flexible coverings as well as a range of colours and textures. Basically, there is something for every taste, and everybody is delighted at an excellent ambience down to the smallest detail. However, one field is often not allowed for: design with skirting boards. There is hardly a field of room decoration where so many colourless standard solutions can be found; although an interior can be given polish especially here.

The starting point is naturally the selection of the floor covering. Then the following is to be established: Are the rooms sparsely furnished or otherwise? Are they occupied by young or older people with conservative or progressive furnishing ideas? Is it an old or new building, and does the skirting board need to fulfil additional functions? Only then the choice of a skirting board can be made. The design of the floor coverings and skirting boards have to match, yet one can give free rein to one’s imagination. Skirting boards by Döllken-Weimar, such as C 60 for flexible floor coverings or TS 60 for carpets, offer a wide range of possibilities.

Infills of strips of the floor covering used may result in different effects: from a discreet colour match to strong contrasts. Skirting boards fulfill a crucial function. They are the connecting element between wall and floor covering. Thus, they protect the wall when cleaning the room, cover uneven floors and adapt to irregular walls. So they create a harmonious transition from floor to wall. In fact, the interior designer admits that skirting boards are rather a marginal issue, yet they become increasingly important in the course of room design. Much skill is required to treat this issue carefully since a bad skirting board solution may spoil a visually appealing room design. Skirting boards from Döllken ensure unspoiled room design for every taste.
