Description by Ruud

Our floor had to be replaced from a solid wooden floor of 22 mm thick in the living room and kitchen to a laminate floor! So looking for new skirting boards for the kitchen unit. Old skirting boards had become 2 cm too narrow. I approached several kitchen suppliers, but no one could deliver what I wanted in terms of color and, what was important, the correct width! And most of them were made of driftwood! The problem was the sizes I wanted to order. I could only use standard sizes and then cut them to size myself.

How I made this project

So I found via Google. First I carefully measured which sizes I wanted. I emailed about how I could best finish the edges. Those possibilities were very great. I wanted a rounded corner on one upright side, that was no problem. Everything was filled out shelf by shelf on the site and given a number. It is useful when it is delivered that you have everything in order. The ordered planks arrived and were accurate to the millimeter. Moisture-resistant MDF black! It was delivered neat and tidy. I made the skirting boards fit on the left and right, painted them twice in clear boat lacquer, also remember the end side that goes on the floor!
