What Is Architrave?
Architrave is the decorative timber mouldings fitted around the casings of internally doors, windows, and loft hatches - the purpose of architrave is to hide the joint between the wall/ceiling and the timber casings. It also hides any subsequent shrinkage and movement between the two.
Architrave should be fitted after all wall surfaces have been finished (but not decorated) and before fitting skirting board and doors.
