Carpet skirting board terminology
Hi My Builders,
We're currently renovating floors in our house and took down all skirting boards in the process.
We plan to install new carpets afterwards and I'm looking at different skirting options, one of which is not using skirting boards but extend the carpet a few cm along the wall, see the linked picture below.
While I found skirting boards for that overseas (http://www.weprofile.it/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Battiscopa-per-Moquette-PVC-Line-172-600x350.jpg for example), I haven't found anything similar being sold in the UK. I guess it's just me not knowing the right name for the gizmos that hold the carpet on the wall.
How do you call them?
