Just wondering what you thought to this, if you've seen or done it before, and what they looked like?

Id read it somewhere before that they do it in some countries as common practice and i like the idea of it. Every time you decorate, unscrew them, decorate and screw back on. So i was thinking about caps, plugs, etc to cover the screw heads and think i could make it look quite tidy with a bit of faffinf. Just about to have the room skimmed, i suppose it will depend how straight the walls are as to how tidy it looks?

Personally I think it is a great idea, pozi snap/tap caps would do and the appropriate fixing into the wall

How often you planning on decorating ? Once every few years ?by the time you have set it out made it look neat , get your scribes , mitres ect spot on other wise you will still have to fill the joins I'd just permanently fix them , light sand every time you paint and away you go , can't see how much time in the long run or any other bennifit

:withstupid:
The external mitres need glued making removal a nightmare,you'll need a bead of caulk along the top of the skirting too which would need cutting/scraping off.
Why do you need to take them off to decorate?
I can't believe it's common practice in any country tbh.
