A paint brush is often preferred as it can paint to full skirting board up to the edge. Paint brushes come in two main forms; natural bristle and synthetic. As the name would suggest, natural bristle paint brushes are made from natural sources such as animal hair. They are designed for use with oil-based paints and due to their split ends that can achieve a non-streak finish. They cannot be used with water-based paints as they will absorb the water. A synthetic bristle paint brush is made of nylon, polyester or a mix of both and is perfect for use with water-based paints. Most decorators have a preference between oil-based and water-based paints. While oil-based paints have traditionally been higher quality, changes to VOC regulations and advances in water-based technology has meant that both forms of paint are equally high-quality. If you are a novice DIY'er, a water-based paint will be easier to use and will allow you to apply two coats in the same day. If you have the time to wait 16-24 hours between coats and want to achieve a highly durable finish on your skirting boards, especially if you are not using a white shade, an oil-based paint may be best suited for you. Finish Brands like Dulux, Dulux Trade, Crown Trade, Leyland Trade, and Johnstones Trade offer a range of options to suit different needs and preferences.

Once your skirting boards are prepped, you're ready to start painting.

So the first step is to move furniture into the centre of the room and cover with dust sheets to keep clean.

It's also renowned for its durability and hardwearing characteristics. This should be considered in high foot traffic areas and homes with young children. So, should skirting boards be gloss or satin? It largely depends on your aesthetic preferences and the room's usage. Gloss is often chosen for its reflective qualities, while satin offers a more understated elegance. If you're torn between satin and eggshell, consider the room's lighting and how much wear and tear the skirting boards will endure. Eggshell is often considered better for less frequented rooms due to its subtler sheen.

Two coats should be sufficient on most skirting boards if you have used a knotting solution to cover any dark marks. This should provide an opaque, streak-free finish and even coverage. You can always apply a third coat or touch up any areas once the second coat is dry.

Paint the rest of each skirting board to complete the first coat. We recommend painting from one side of the room to the other, allowing the paint to dry between coats. To apply the paint to a skirting board, a 2-inch brush is needed. This is good for cutting in along the top edge of a skirting board and provides good coverage in detailed and flat areas. You might want to switch to a 1-inch brush to get crisp straight lines in the corners.
