Does anyone know where you can buy adhesive skirting board edging?
The small edging that can be placed on the bottom of skirting board.
I have just put down wooden flooring and new skirting but would like something to finish off the bottom bit!!!
Guess it does not have to be adhesive, I could sort that myself

Thanks In Advance

build center?

all diy stores have lengths of beading... varnish or stain it...glue or pin it down, or goto a laminate floor or carpet shop get the proper stuff for 3 times the price, same thing really

if you had put the floor down 1st then the skirting on top you wouldnt need it :thumbsup:

Ikea do it at a quite reasonable price

Believe me it wont look better, it will look more like a bodge.:whistling:

If you do use it, you can only stick it to either the floor or the skirting board, but not both. If you glue to both, it will break off when you walk past it as the boards have a lot of give in them.

Agree with Broxy on this one. I ripped my beading back out once it was down. I hated it. It didnt look as good as I thought it would have. It just looks wierd with the skirting and then the beading. Up to yourself though but just a word of warning you may not like it.

How about something like ]THIS to cover the skirting & allowing overlapping onto the new flooring?

Going to the trouble of putting down wood flooring, and then skirting boards, and then putting beading on?!?
Should've got laminate, and saved your money.
