Baseboard Moulding: 3 Simple Upgrades with a Big Impact

In the world of interior design, baseboard moulding often plays a silent yet significant role. It’s the unsung hero that can quietly revolutionize your room’s aesthetic. Today, with the expertise of Smith & DeShields, we embark upon a creative exploration of three distinct upgrades for baseboard moulding, each capable of breathing new life into your living spaces and infusing them with an unparalleled sense of elegance.

1. Crown of Grandeur

Crown moulding is not just the finishing touch; it’s the “pièce de resistance” of your baseboard moulding. It gracefully bridges the gap between your walls and ceiling, introducing an air of sophistication that commands attention.

Imagine a full palette of crown moulding styles, each resembling a masterpiece in its own right. Whether your heart leans toward timeless curves or the modern allure of angular profiles, Smith & DeShields and their expertise bring depth and refinement to your room, elevating it from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

2. Texture Tales: Beadboard or Wainscoting

If your living space craves character and dimension, the world of beadboard or wainscoting is your creative playground, and Smith & DeShields is your guide. These transformative upgrades involve the addition of decorative panels to your baseboard moulding, often covering the lower section of your walls and in some cases, the entire wall.

Beadboard, with its slender vertical panels, casts a warm, cottage-inspired charm, enveloping your room in a welcoming embrace, all guided by Smith & DeShields’ craftsmanship. In contrast, wainscoting showcases larger, rectangular panels, evoking a sense of formal elegance. Beyond their visual appeal, Smith & DeShields’ expertise ensures these textured wonders act as protective shields for your walls, guarding them against the rigors of daily life.

3. Colors and Contrasts Come Alive

Sometimes, the boldest statements in design are made with colors and contrasts. Baseboard moulding, often overshadowed, is usually painted to blend seamlessly with the walls. However, deviating from this norm can yield breathtaking results.

Envision a baseboard moulding painted or stained in a striking, contrasting shade against lighter walls. This simple twist infuses an element of intrigue into your space, spotlighting the architectural finesse. Alternatively, in rooms cloaked in dark hues, Smith & DeShields can help you choose a lighter baseboard moulding to create a dramatic contrast that reinvigorates the atmosphere.

For those unafraid to make a statement, vibrant colors that harmonize with your decor become your tool of choice, thereby transforming your baseboard moulding into a focal point, radiating personality and vitality throughout your living spaces.
