The commonly used skirting boards are wooden skirting boards, frosted metal skirting boards, and PVC skirting boards. Wooden skirting boards are generally used with solid wood or blister door panels. However, because the skirting board is very close to the ground, the wood material is easy to absorb water and become damp, and the water vapor will rise along the skirting board and endanger the entire cabinet. This is why some kitchen cabinets will "get fat" at the bottom of the base cabinet after a period of use. Imported frosted metal skirting boards with waterproof rubber is not only waterproof, moisture-proof, mold-free, and rust-free, but also beautiful and durable, and will not be damaged for life.
Most of the cabinets now use aluminum-plastic skirting boards, which are divided into one layer and two layers, and the height is 115MM. PVC skirting boards are also commonly used, but they are relatively brittle and will age and become brittle after a long time.
Moreover, the decorative effect of PVC skirting is poor, which is significantly lower than that of other materials, unlike natural and textured solid wood skirting. The material of PVC skirting is relatively special, and the quality may not be so strong. It is easy to deform, twist or even fall off after a few years of use. This is also the reason why many friends are reluctant to choose. PVC material is not resistant to high temperature and dryness. If the room is exposed to the sun all year round, the skirting line will easily change color or even bulge, which not only affects the appearance but also greatly reduces the practicality.
Therefore, when choosing a cabinet skirting board, it is best to choose a material that is waterproof, moisture-proof, not easy to deform, and more durable.
