Here are nine baseboard design ideas to consider, no matter what your style.
Flat baseboards play against traditional expectations of a curving, rounded baseboard and instead feature a completely flat surface.
The walls shown here are a little busy, so keeping other details very simple helps the space feel tidy and crisp. The deep white baseboard provides a bit of a visual break, rather than fighting for attention.
In both of these examples, the rectangular baseboards are paired with a textural wall treatment and some classic finishes (parquet floors, antiqued mirror) that balance modern and traditional elements seamlessly.
The difference can be subtle, and the eye will still see the entire area from the lower baseboard strip to the upper strip as one piece. Only on very close inspection could anyone tell whether the middle section of the baseboard is “real” or not.
