Round Corner Drywall


There are several ways to deal with that stuff.

Rounded drywall corner beads come with the bottom portion squared off to accommodate standard base.

Or you can buy the squared corners to use in conjunction with the rounded corner bead.

You can also by wooden rounded base corner profiles.

You can also install blocks on all of the out-corners that will allow the base to be straight-cut.

You can also ignore the round and install the base mitered to a corner then fill the resulting hole with caulk. (Seen it done.)

You can also stop the base short of the radius and do a return to the wall using the base profile for the return.The corner bead is then neatly finished to the floor.

Don’t stop there, there’s still at least one more.

That's all I could think of. Feel free to add to the list.

Making your own, two at a time. 15deg glued up around a dowel with a rubber band.

I do like the blocks better though.

That reminds me...

I have also seen a small mitered piece used at the corner. A piece maybe 1" wide mitered to 22.5 degrees on both sides to match a longer piece of base also mitered at 22.5.

This is the standard way of doing it around here.

Here is the measurement at the inside (back) of the baseboard (for the little piece) for a 3/4" radius corner. (3/4" radius for the d/w rounded corner is pretty standard) I show the inside because no matter how thick or how intricate the front of the baseboard is, the measurement on the back of the baseboard shown here will always remain constant. For a 3/4" radius, it will be right at 5/8", depending on how careful or how sloppy the d/w finishers were. To be honest, you're probably safer to make it a taste bigger because most d/w guys get pretty careless down there at the bottom of a wall, and usually load it up with too much mud.

(Ignore the last photo on the lower right... the one with the brown piece. It was just in the picture, and I didn't feel like cropping it out.)

yep that's what I do, segmented pieces at 22.5, corner pieces are usually around an inch or so. Find this works pretty well.
