A bedroom needs to have a regal yet modern look to it, which is why a wide, plain white baseboard is a fantastic way to get everything working together as it should. It promotes the idea that the space is welcome to interpretation.

You can make the decor scheme elegant, modern, rustic, clean, complex. It all works together to give you a refreshing look at the way that a baseboard is going to help transform the room for the better. It’s best to use a light colour, or perhaps a hint of cream. Match it to the walls, but don’t be too worried about it.



2. Entry Room

There’s nothing quite as refreshing and and rejuvenating as an entryway full of light and decor, but all done in a quiet and toned way. This is done by a quality baseboard, of course. It livens up the floor. It brings out the light colours in the wood grains nearby, and it helps finish off the look simply and quietly.

The best part about having a cream white, medium entryway baseboard is that it really helps pull together every part of the space. Even if it wasn’t intended to “all come together”, this finishes the look off. A great focal point.

When you are creating the right kind of professional looking dining room, you’re going for quite a few different kinds of things. First and foremost, you need to remember the importance that goes into creating a space that is going to be functional, yet decorative.

In a modern dining room, you’re going to have to make sure that you use the same colour from the baseboard as you do on the walls.  This gives it a minimalist appearance, it also allows it to be a statement piece. When you want a put together space, this is exactly how it should look.



4. Electic Entry

If you’re aiming to have an entryway that is more focused on the artwork, the best idea is to use a baseboard that is relatively small and also simple in its cut and edging.

Remember in this situation that the baseboard is simply meant to act as a frame for the wall, and you want to make sure that is much emphasis is on the artwork as possible.

Therefore, you can match the colour of the baseboard with the wall, and it will create a modern and sophisticated look. A modern entry is all about making sure that you create a welcoming space without being too overwhelming.

5. Farmhouse Style

If you’re looking to replicate farmhouse look and feel, you’ll often find that there is not much baseboard to be found.



This is partially because it does not match the farmhouse style, but when you are trying to put together a modern farmhouse look and feel, you can easily make that work by putting together a baseboard on top of the wall already there.

It has the texture to it that will make it a lot more impressive than you would think. This is perfect for somebody who wants a low maintenance style with character and an easy addition to what is already there.

6. Farmhouse Hall

If you want another look at the farmhouse look and feeling with baseboard, this is the perfect example of one that uses colour contrast to make it effective.

The rich white baseboard is modern yet classic and it’s perfect if you’re looking to combine elegant and classic, not to mention practical needs.



The trick to making sure that you’re using the right look is to go with an overly wide baseboard that will add some depth to the bottom of your wall. This creates a simple colour contrast definition that really helps you to work with what you’ve already got going.

7. Fireplace

When you’re working to carefully put together the living room with the fireplace in the wall like this one, you have to make sure that you use baseboard to give a careful and thin definition that is going to attract the eye.

The point is to make sure that it completes the room, like all baseboard should, but that it won’t take away from the focal point, which is, in this case, the fireplace. It can be tricky to get this right in all situations, but you can see here how it uses a thin line at the top of the baseboard to finish the look off without being too loud.

8. Kids Room

If you’re using a bright colour on the wall, you need to make sure that you put together a cream or white colour for the baseboard. It’s best to choose a thin line in terms of its depth as well. Simple, yet not understated in the slightest and is perfect for both parent and child.

Big wide open spaces like this one mean that you have a lot of great things to take care of in terms of the way that you are going to be transitioning the space from room to room.

The thing is, however, it works hand in hand with what the room is trying to do in terms of its transition. The colour contrast on the baseboard along the door frames works well and creates the defined look that you need, but the rest speaks for itself.
