Our 1960’s Remodel Continued – Hall Bath Overhaul

As we make our way from the master bathroom to the kitchen, we have one more stop on the remodeling tour of our 1964 home update.

Baseboard burden

Jake,

I have a living room that has two walls that are painted over plaster, and two walls that are wood paneling. I want to take up the carpet and put down laminate. Then I will need to add baseboard around the edge. Do I paint the baseboard to match the painted walls or stain it to match the paneling?

Leta,

I think the base should all be the same color.

Regretting your design? Consider remodeling.

There are a million different reasons to redesign a space. We recently read a blog that reminded us of one of the most common reasons: functionality. Does a wall in your home just not make sense to you? Or maybe a closet could be better placed somewhere else to open up a room.
