Baseboards are a cosmetic feature of your room that connects the floor to the wall. When added to the base of your walls, baseboards give your room a finished, clean, and aesthetically appealing look. But just as important as they are in adding contemporary beauty to the room, baseboards are highly functional Baseboards:
- Protect the drywall from moisture and water damage
- Regulate the room’s temperature by preventing air leaks
- Cover gaps between the drywall and flooring
- Stop dirt and debris from getting under the drywall in hard-to-reach areas
- Protect the bottom of the walls from bumps, scuffs, and other physical damage
Baseboards are very versatile. They come in a variety of styles and widths. They can be cut to fit any walls size. Baseboards are paintable. While most baseboards are white, their colour can be changed to match your room’s décor.
While some experts recommend the 1:12 ratio for choosing baseboards, selecting the size and style ultimately depends on what you want in your home. The 1:12 rule means for every 12 inches of ceiling height you have 1 inch baseboard height.
Baseboards are relatively easy to install, however, if not done properly, poorly attached baseboards will take away from the overall look of your room. That is why it is important to hire a professional when it comes to baseboards installation.
