Shadow Gap

When I first started renovating my house a couple of years ago I wanted shadow gap at the bottom of the walls instead of skirting board. But no-one knew what I was talking about and I couldn’t find anything online.. so I caved and made do with skirting.

So when we started renovating our new office I insisted on shadow gap again. And again, no-one knew what I was talking about. But this time I pushed for it.. and we got it!

Shadow gap is when you have a receding gap at the bottom of the wall, so it looks like the wall is floating slightly above the floor. Why do I want that and not a piece of painted wood at the bottom? I don’t know.
