The floor plinth, which most apartment owners use to design and finish the joints of walls with the floor, can be of several types. One of the most commonly used types of skirting boards is veneered. A distinctive feature of such a plinth is its design.
It consists of two parts. The first part is the base. As a rule, it is made from inexpensive, but quite durable wood species – spruce or pine. The second part, attached on top of the first, is called veneer. Veneer is made from expensive and beautiful woods. As a result of the connection of the parts, a product is obtained that, in appearance, is almost impossible to distinguish from a plinth made of valuable wood. At the same time, the price of such goods is average, they are available to almost everyone.
The shape of the veneered skirting board can be different. Most often, the saw cut of such parts resembles a boot in shape: the upper part is narrow and rounded, the upper part expands with a slope in one direction.
The color that the veneered plinth has can be any. The stores present both models that “copy” natural wood (sometimes aged) in color and texture, as well as skirting boards of non-standard colors – bright, unnatural.
Veneer coated skirting boards are available for all interiors. In this case, designers are advised not to adhere to strict rules, but to select a product to your taste. So, the color of the plinth can be in harmony not only with the color of openings or flooring, but also with any interior detail: wallpaper, ceiling, curtains, etc. Guided by purely practical considerations, many still choose darker skirting boards for hallways and halls, since these rooms often have a lot of dust from the street. But in the bedrooms and living rooms there may well be light, even white skirting boards, which are popular and fashionable today.
The width of skirting board profiles ranges from very small to very large – up to 120 cm.
When choosing such products, you should remember that if there is a need to hide any cables under the surface of the skirting boards, you should choose those that have a special channel for such purposes. Many models of skirting boards are not equipped with such a detail.
