Firstly, sorry if this question has already been answered, but I can't find how to search through existing topics!
The room being decorated used to have (very fetching) dado-height pine panelling on every wall, which has now been removed. As such there is no existing skirting board and hence we’ve got to fit new skirting board as part of our decorating endeavour. The skirting is going to be very plain, just planks of wood essentially, rather than anything fancy or moulded. In addition we’ve also removed the architrave from around the doors which also needs to be replaced. Both the skirting and architrave will be painted white.
Anyway, my question is – what do we do first? Paint the walls or fit the skirting/architrave?
Also should we paint the skirting and architrave before fitting it?
I’m really, really confused as we’ve been getting very mixed information on this topic from friends and family.
We are also putting a new floor down, which will be put down before the skirting, I don’t know if that makes any difference to the order we should do things though.
Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated, as at the moment I don’t know what to do next.
