If your budget is good enough then you can opt for the best one like Oak wood, otherwise you can choose one of the options listed below.
Medium density fiberboard
These days a variety of materials are used for skirting boards, mostly people use MDF or the medium density fiber skirting board which is available everywhere and has the ability to enhance the looks of the home. Also its every affordable and convenient for anyone to buy therefore is favorite amongst the users. This board is made of wood fiber, which is joined by wax under high temperature and pressure.
Painting this board becomes easy because it is free of marks and knots; even if it is not painted, it still looks good and furnished.

Earlier, only natural wood was used by our ancestors for all the forms of skirting. It was easy to get in a cheap rate and was simple to work upon. Pine was used for skirting but the consistency was not maintained because some part of the wood was thicker and denser. While painting and varnishing, it used to become uneven and could not get a smooth finish. The best natural wood used was oak to deliver perfection at skirting but at a higher cost, because of which only few people could afford it. Oak need not be pained but only varnished which use to last for a longer duration of time. Natural wood is rigid in nature therefore it creates problems in skirting and it does not gets fixed up by glue like the MDF does.
Just like medium density fiber, wood vinyl is also an affordable solution for skirting. It is flexible in nature and can go around on odd shaped walls. There are a lot of custom colors and designs available, you can match it according to the room color and pair it accordingly. Vinyl is low in density therefore it easily is knocked down, it is not as protective as the natural wood or the MDF.
