2.Fixing the floor, especially when laying wooden floors, because of the characteristics of thermal expansion and contraction of the floor, it is necessary to leave a 5 mm gap at the boundary of the wall, so the gap can be locked by laying skirting to fix the floor.

3.Hiding wires Now most wires are hidden projects. When installing the floor, space will be reserved for various lines, so skirting can be installed at this time to perfectly hide them and make the interior look clean and refreshing.

4. It is convenient to clean the corners. When cleaning and mopping the floor, dust, dirty water, etc. are more likely to be contaminated, so installing skirting can perfectly cover them, which is convenient for later cleaning.

  •  If the floor height is not too high, it is recommended to choose 60mm or 70mm skirtings, because the lines are narrower and can stretch the space ratio.
