I recommend plastic plinth with cable channel. In this channel you can hide the phone or antenna wire. More expensive, but convenient to the plinth is not hard, but soft. That is his edge made of soft plastic. Such better plinth adjacent to the rough walls, leaving no gaps.
WHAT NEEDS TO BE MORE TO Plinth? – Corners, end caps on the edges and connections – all the plastic fittings that are selected by color moldings. Ask to participate in the selection of Seller, showing him the plan of your room. In my opinion, of all the title is particularly pay attention to the corners. They are reinforced in the angle between the two plinths. However, their mounting, they are adjacent to the plinth itself, very weak and break easily.
If you do not have much experience fixing skirting boards, if you like to work quickly and naturally, it is time to take one or two corners in reserve – they probably come in handy. – Plug-nails. They plinth will be attached to the wall. High-speed nail a plastic plug with a broad cap and screwed into a screw. In the baseboard and the wall of drilled hole in a plastic plug is inserted, and the dowel screw is screwed. Please note that normal plugs will not fit. Want that kind of dowel with a wide hat (they say – a secret hat), she will be pressed to the wall baseboard. I advise you to buy these plug-nails immediately upon purchasing a plinth. Vendors recommended to take 4-5 plugs per plinth length of 2.5 meters. But some people get by with three. Four is certainly enough. – Apart from baseboards may need to purchase thresholds. The threshold is a plastic or metal bar (come in different colors), which is attached with screws to the floor at the border between the rooms (if there you do not have wooden sills).
