Skirtings are primarily used to protect walls from damage.
In residential or commercial use, walls are often cracked or broken by shocks and scuffs around their base , that’s why installers use skirtings to act as a barrier.
It is particularly useful in commercial buildings such as workplaces or healthcare buildings where high traffic is constant.
The second function is to hide the buffer between the wall and the floor.
Indeed, skirtings are necessary both practically and aesthetically.
There is always a junction between the floor and the wall, and skirting boards are made to hide and protect that buffer.
Skirting will give a neat final touch to the room.
