Corner Bead Instead of Baseboard Molding


I have a loft and instead of baseboard molding I want to use L-bead cornerbead on the bottom of the drywall. There will be a 1/2" gap between the drywall and the wood floor.

Questions:

1. Steel or Vinyl?
2. Screws or Nails?
3. Are the screws/nails supposed to be secured through the drywall and into the framing?
4. I have steel framing, if the corner bead is supposed to be secured to both the drywall and the framing, obviously nails won't work, correct?

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you for your help!

I personally don't use plastic, but some people swear by it. The screws won't pull up in the drywall. You'll have to hit a stud....

What is the purpose of this? Just for looks, or is this something to do with airflow?

Shouldn't be any airflow if there's a bottom plate on the wall. I'm guessing just a different look???

It does have a unique look not having trim , but another advantage is you dont have to worry about trim shrinking and expanding leaving those gaps in the miters. probably less cost aswell not having to finish the trim .

I would have the problem with pet hair and dust collecting under the gap. I still like the idea and am awaiting results!

Great idea. Base trim can be a pain to paint and to fit. Keeps us posted on how it turns out.
