Baseboards – an effective way to improve the look of your home dramatically!

Baseboards can be found in every house, apartment or condo. They run the length of a wall next to the floor to conceal carpet, hardwood, or other flooring gaps or imperfections. They serve as protection against vacuum cleaners, mops sloshing against walls and furniture scrapes or bumps causing damages to the walls.

Choosing the right baseboards and trim to match your decor.

In the past, baseboards were often three-piece affairs consisting of a flat plank, a decorative cap moulding, and a rounded shoe moulding to cover gaps along the floor. About 40-50 years ago, with new technologies and manufacturing processes in place, the baseboard became a single piece, with a variety of designs and options. Original standard sizes were usually somewhere in between 2 to 4 inches. Today, baseboards and trims are bigger and wider to accommodate higher ceilings and larger living spaces. Original tiny boards are being replaced with the new 5” to 7” baseboards to make a more dramatic effect on home interiors. Typically, the height is chosen based on the height of the ceiling and overall the size of the room. Larger baseboards are used in larger rooms with taller ceilings – usually, 5 to 6-inch baseboards on 8-foot ceilings and baseboards over 6 inches for rooms with ceiling a height of 9 feet or higher. Most base mouldings have a plain design and usually match with other trims like casings and wainscoting. The base moulding is generally thinner than the casing. This gives way for a more “finished” look. The boards generally do not have to match the crown moulding, because crown moulding is an accent piece.

If your baseboards are in good shape and you don’t need to pull them out, there is an option of adding a small thin piece of decorative moulding to the top. This upgrade is a really easy and an inexpensive option to achieve the preferred look of the taller baseboards.
