Painting Skirting Boards and Door Frames

Skirting boards and door frames are very important parts of your home and need to be properly maintained for safety as well as to keep your home looking good. I always try to keep my house painted, but sometimes it’s just not enough.

Painting Skirting Boards

There are some pretty expensive painting projects that need to get done around your home and one of the first things you need to do is take out the old skirting boards and door frames. This will take some time and will need your attention.

The first thing you need to do is paint the skirting boards and door frames in the color of your choice. The only rule here is that you should usually be painting the ceiling first, the walls, the trim, windows, and then doors last, followed by the skirting boards (if they’re painted) skirting boards. Then make sure that you have all the correct tools to help you in doing a good painting job! Get tapering ragged brushes (especially 28-mm).

I recommend painting your skirting board first, so you can see how it matches with the rest of your woodwork before you start on the doors or other woodwork. This is best especially if you’re going to be using enamel paint that doesn’t have latex-like other types of paint.

After you’ve painted the skirting boards and door frames, you can now move on to the rest of the woodwork in the room. It may be a good idea to cover up the paint that you’ve used with a primer that matches the woodwork, this way you can easily remove the paint and touch up any mistakes that you may have made.
