Trim around baseboard radiators?
I recently renovated my living room and dining room and I am at the stage where I am installing the baseboard trim. My only issue with this is that my house has several cast iron baseboard radiators and several cast iron convenctors. The baseboard radiators are only about 8 inches tall and 6 to 8 feet long and sit against the drywall. The cast iron convectors are about 2 feet tall and 3.5 feet long and are recessed into the 2x4 walls. This leaves apporximately 2 inches sticking out past the drywall. I have chosen a baseboard trim that is 5.25 inches tall and I don't know if I should use it to trim around both the radiators and convectors. I think it would look weird running up the sides and tops of the radiators and convectors. But I also think it would look weird to use my door and window casing. What should I do?
