Laminate Skirting Boards & Scotia

Once the flooring and trims have been installed, it’s time to put the final additions to the floor with the addition of skirting boards and scotia.

Skirting boards

When laminate flooring is installed, skirting boards are strongly recommended to cover the 10mm expansion gap that’s required around the room. There’s lots of skirting boards to choose from that will be a great match for the laminate that you choose.


If you don’t plan to replace your existing skirting boards, you can address the gap using a scotia. The scotia is a great little final addition that will cover the expansion gap, creating a seamless finish between the floor and the wall. Scotia is available in white, or it can match the colour of your laminate.
