It depends on the size of the room and the height of the ceiling in your home. Generally new homes in the Las Vegas Valley come with “builder grade” baseboards, which can be extremely small and plain. At a minimum, we recommend going with at least a 3 ½” tall baseboard, but most homes look fantastic with 4 ½” to 5 inch moldings.
Traditionally most trim work is painted a simple white, giving your home a clean, finished look. Walls painted with a slightly darker color make the baseboard pop out and allow for a great contrast, highlighting the trim.
A stain grade hardwood is a great way to match hardwood floors or continue other architectural highlights in your home. Solid wood baseboards can be stained to match almost any color flooring, furniture piece or color.
