Laminate Trims & Profiles

Trims and Profiles

Trims and profiles are great additions to your flooring and they mark the transition between different types of floor. They can also be used to cover gaps between flooring or address height differences. The trims can be bought to match the parquet flooring that you choose.

Threshold Trims

Between doorways of different rooms you may have two types of floor that meet. As they do there may be a gap or a differing height so a threshold trim will be the best option.

Ramp Trim

Sometimes the difference in height between floors can be significant. A ramp trim can be used to create a smooth transition between the two types of floor.

Edge Trim

Suitable for use where the floor meets objects such as patio doors, door mats or fire hearths. An edge trim will create a neat finish.

Pipe Covers

If you have central heating in your home, there may be pipework that runs up from the floor. Parquet flooring will need to be fitted around these pipes. Holes around the pipes can be covered with a convenient pipe cover. Usually supplied in two halves, the covers can be glued together which fit loosely on the floor.

 

Skirting and Scotia

As the design of your flooring comes together once the main area of flooring has been installed, you may want to install skirting or scotia.

Skirting Boards

The skirting board runs around the 

perimeter of a room and can create the finishing touch once the flooring is installed. They can protect the wall and look great too. The skirting boards are available in either white or a colour to match your flooring providing a seamless appearance.

Scotia

Where you don’t want to replace your existing skirting boards, you will still need to leave an expansion gap. To cover this you can use a scotia which is a clean, simple and elegant finish to the flooring.

Both skirting and scotia can preserve the edging of the flooring. Without the installation of these, edges can become chipped or damaged which can spread further into the parquet flooring.
