If a crown sits on your head, then what is the term for royal footwear? Well, if you were a wall that “footwear” would be called a baseboard. Simply put, a baseboard covers the connection between a wall and the floor. It’s a useful invention that adds flair to any room.
Offered in a variety of materials including: wood, PVC, and stainless steel, the reverse crown-moulding option of a baseboard helps to protect your walls from bumps caused by vacuums, chairs, pets, and other factors you simply cannot predict. Installing a baseboard if your wall joint does not have one already makes good sense, both for the value of your home and from an aesthetic point of view.
With the variety of colours and materials available you will surely be able to find a baseboard option that fits your budget and taste. While most baseboards are finished or painted in white, due to the versatility of the shade, black can also be used as a statement finish in a lighter room. While a lighter baseboard done in a neutral shade like beige will allow for a smaller room to appear larger, using a darker shade can really pull together a smaller space and give it a cozy feel.
Another surprising trick to open up smaller spaces, besides adding a baseboard, is to install a new interior door. Any number of small improvements or updates can make your home feel refreshed, and sometimes a new interior door is exactly what you need to modernize a space. Just like with baseboards, interior doors need to be carefully selected to match both your style and budget, and it’s also important that they’re properly installed.
While various types of materials can be used to manufacture your perfect interior door, there are more opportunities for creativity than there are with baseboards and mouldings. Styles and materials for interior doors can range from wood to veneer, and the various patterns and designs are endless. At times it can almost feel as if there are too many options, but in the end it’s the vast selection that enables you to decorate accordingly to your specific taste.
Many people focus much of their resources and energy on the exterior presentation of their home, oftentimes forgetting that it’s the details of the interior that make the biggest impression on their guests, many of whom spend their time on the inside of your home discerning the details.
Your house should always look its best, but that doesn’t mean you have to devote your time to cleaning and spending money on expensive upgrades. Rather, it’s important to understand that simple changes such as the installation of new baseboards in your dining room or an interior door in your kitchen can easily breathe new life into a room. Therefore, before you decide to undergo major interior renovations, first consider these small, but important improvements – you’ll be surprised what a difference these two upgrades can make!
