Drywall/Baseboard Gap


How about 3/4" quarter round on the top of the base board, and another one along the floor? Or maybe a 1/2 inch on top, and 3/4 on the floor...

Yes, I'm thinking that's the route we will have to take. Thanks for the suggestion!

get a piece of base cap, install it and see how it looks, lips and reveals are a standard part of trim work. An additional shadow line adds to the interest. The purpose of the cap is the same as shoe moulding. Its flexible so it matches the wall/floor contour better than the base.

good luck

my old house has this cap (or something very close to it) on all the baseboard, and i think it looks great.
