Skirting boards’ purpose is to cover the join between the wall and the wood floor. These boards are the bridge between the wooden floor and interior style. MDF means Medium Density Fibreboard and is made up from wood fibres that are gathered from hardwoods and softwoods that have been broken down.

Installing the MDF skirting board
First of all, you need to make sure that you take down all the measurements. One of the perfect advice we heard is to measure twice and cut once. The cuts need to be made at 45-degree angle so that 2 pieces of MDF skirting boards join perfectly. A nail gun will help to attach the skirting board to the wall. To applying the adhesive to the back of the MDF skirting board, we recommend making a zigzag line. Don’t forget to start with the longest wall that has internal corners, and once the adhesive is on you can start pressing the MDF skirting into place.
