Does Your Home Need a New Set of Skiffers?

It’s fair to say that “I need a new set of skiffers” is a phrase you’re not likely to hear much.

But just because skiffers aren’t a household name doesn’t mean that they’re not great for your household. So if you’ve never heard of skiffers, or you’re simply looking for the latest advice about them, allow us to provide a guide.

What is a skiffer?

Okay, so let’s begin with the basics: what exactly is a skiffer? Well, if you have any walls in your home that meet to form a corner, you’ll benefit from a set of skiffers. Essentially, a skirting skiffer is attached to the corner and prevents damage to the wall (or skirting board) from the marks and bumps that can come from everyday life. Skiffers are made from solid brass and are available with a range of finishes, and are quite frankly the most stylish way to protect your walls and skirting boards.

The benefits of skirting skiffers

Whenever you do a little vacuum cleaning, or you decide to move some furniture around, it’s really easy to bump into the wall without realising it. The skirting board is first line of defence against this type of damage, but even a handful of chips in a board can have a negative effect on the overall look of a room. That’s where skiffers really come into their own. Designed to hug the corner of the wall or skirting board and attached with screws, skiffers are also designed with eye-catching patterns of their very own. So not only are they a protective measure, they’re stylish additions in and of themselves!

Choosing the right skiffers

While most skiffers are made from a solid brass core, there are plenty of finishes you can choose from. That means that even if your décor doesn’t gel very well with raw brass, you’re sure to find a look that will. Here at Stair Rods Direct, we’ve got one of the widest arrays of skiffer finishes in the UK, with options available in Polished Brass, Satin Nickel, Black, Chrome, and Pewter.
