In architecture the term base moulding is also referred to as baseboard, floor moulding, skirting board, and mopboard. In general, these types of trim profile are milled from wood, medium density fiberboard (MDF), or other composite material. They are most commonly applied to the lowest part of an interior wall to cover gaps between the floor and wall. Baseboards can also be utilized as a crown backer in the upper portion of the wall, behind and beneath the crown, to give it a more charming and decorative appearance.
We currently have over eighteen hundred stylish base/baseboard designs including modern, colonial, contemporary, victorian and southwestern style for all your baseboard requirements. Compliment any style of base with one of our many base shoe patterns on the bottom of the profile to cover uneven floor applications, we have many to choose from that will suit your architectural style. Utilize one of our base cap details at the top uppermost portion of the pattern to extend the overall height while saving money on lumber cost. Some of our base patterns can double as a casing simply by increasing the thickness, placing a radius of your choice on the outside edge, and reducing the width size on the moulder machinery during the milling process.
If by chance you don't find a base profile that fits into your current architectural design, just send us a sketch. We would be honored to design a new baseboard profile on cad, cut an acrylic template on our cnc machinery, and grind a set of moulding cutters on our Weinig R 960 grinder, in any high quality knife steel we offer. Don't forget, we have an easy to use knife calculator located directly under every design in our catalog, offering immediate, accurate price quotes.
