MDF Plinth Blocks

Plinth blocks are designed to bring added grandeur to your room when placed at the foot of your architrave. This is achieved by making your doors reminiscent of columns from classical times.

The plain plinth block is versatile enough to work with any skirting or architrave, but you will need to always make sure the height is taller than your skirting and the width is greater than the architrave.

The chamfered plinth block is a stylish variation intended to work with detailed mouldings.

Please note: we are phasing out the smaller 230mm height sizes. If a size you require is not displaying for a smaller height block please select the larger height and cut down.

Please see additional information below if considering CHAMFERED plinth blocks to check suitability for your chosen architrave shape.
