How To Select The Perfect Baseboard Style For Your Home

From top to bottom, each inch of your home deserves attention to detail. While baseboards may seem like a minor detail, they can play a significant role in tying a design or room together. 

When thinking about baseboards, it’s easy to simply imagine a standard thin piece of wood at the bottom of a wall. However, baseboards are much more diverse than that, ranging in different sizes, profiles, finishes, heights, and more. If you aren’t sure which baseboard style is the right fit for your home, we’re here to help!

In this article, we’re discussing how you can pick the perfect baseboard for your home based on a variety of different interior design styles. 

Bohemian: Bohemian designs tend to include eclectic colors, patterns, and textures. You can highlight these elements by tying a bohemian design together with curved and ornate baseboards. 

Classic: Classic designs are timeless and traditional. Curved and beveled baseboards we the perfect way to add a touch of timeless sophistication to any room. Many traditional homes will also add decorative caps to conventional baseboards to add subtle and ornate and eye-catching details. 

Modern Farmhouse: This design is all about keeping things fresh and inviting! Adding simple, flat, and angular baseboards in crisp, light, and neutral tones will create a bright and airy space with minimal design elements. 

Shabby Chic: Lived-in design styles are trending in 2023. To create an effortlessly delicate design – try installing curved baseboards in cream colors or soft pastels that have a distressed finish to add the perfect charming finishing touch. 

Industrial: Urban homes with brick, exposed concrete, or other rugged elements should incorporate flat and angular baseboards to create an edgy and strong design that includes very straight and bold lines with sharp angles. 

Craftsman: Flat, simple, and angular baseboards are the perfect way to highlight the beauty of Craftsman design. It’s important to use high-quality materials, such as solid wood. Incorporating clean and smooth baseboards will allow for the well-made simplicity of the design to shine. 

Modern: Modern designs are all about clean lines and simplicity. When installing baseboards in a modern home, you may consider painting either the walls or baseboards to create modern contrast.
