Scotia is a decorative shaping used to cover the gap between the floor and the baseboard running along the bottom of a wall around the edge of a room. Designed in a stylish concave form, it gives the floor a neat border and does an effective job of concealing the space between the floor and baseboard which is purposely left when laying a new floor in order to allow the material to expand naturally. Suitable for use throughout the home, scotia is made of hardwearing manmade material or natural timber with a smooth finish designed for long-lasting use. It also makes cleaning a floor easier by preventing dust from getting trapped in the gaps around the edge of a room. A vast choice of styles, shades and effects is available, including ready-to-paint options, allowing households to colour-match their scotia to their chosen floor or decor.
