Adding Baseboard Molding

The addition of a baseboard molding along the base of your walls can add a traditional architectural finish to your room.

Choosing Baseboard Molding

When you shop for baseboard molding, pick out a style that fits in with the rest of the décor. Many different types are available, from the trim 1¾-inch high to the 8-inch sculpted. Putting a tall base in a smaller room, such as a bathroom, can really make the entire place look quite a lot bigger.

Molding Materials

Many of the new moldings are made from polyurethane foam instead of wood, and are completely mildew, insect, and rot proof, though they do cost a bit more.

Attaching Your Baseboard Molding

“Measure twice, and cut once”. This is good advice. When you cut the molding after measuring the length you need, cut it a little longer than you measured ( a hair’s breadth), this will give you some wiggle room in case your tape measure is slightly off. Using finish nails, attach the baseboard molding to the wall. A nail every 8 inches is enough to hold it firmly in place.

Apply a painter’s grade caulk to the corner joints, and run a bead of continuous caulking along the upper part of the molding where it meets the wall. A sponge and some warm water is helpful for clean up.
