Skirting and Architrave Guidelines

We are often asked our advice on this subject so this article runs through all the things that you need to consider when choosing these items.

With our prehung door sets we can provide certain designs of architrave and skirting that are veneered so these items match what ever finish you have chosen for the doors.

How to fit Architrave Moulding around a door frame with perfect mitres 

Decorative Architrave, also known as door surrounds and door casing are the finishing moldings used primarily to frame doorways. I always try to install these after having hung a door and before installing the skirting boards up to the doorway.

Architraves are a really versatile molding that can also be fitted around loft traps, box sash windows, on stair stringers (to cover the join between stair string and plasterboard - pictured below left), as a wall batten to support or tidy up the front edge of shelves and any other areas that either need enhancing or hiding!

How to fit a timber architrave

An architrave is a timber moulding that sits around a door frame window or around a loft hatch. It is a decorative wooden trim which hides any shrinkage in the surrounding walls and ceilings, or warped edges. When fitting a timber architrave around a door, you will need three lengths of architrave, with one horizontal piece to sit over the top of the doorframe, and two vertical legs or jambs for the sides. The corners are usually mitred at 45 degrees to allow the pieces to sit together without a gap.
