So what I am saying is that my kitchen is in the middle of the house and sort of open. I guess I am assuming that the other rooms that have plenty of heat will make up for it.
How much money to you want to spend on your assumption. It cost more to install new baseboard, then to take it out.

If your kitchen wasn't he hottest room in the house. then once you remove that baseboard, it will become the coldest room in the house. or, the other rooms around it may become a bit cooler also, since they will be losing heat to the kitchen. And their baseboards weren't sized to heat the kitchen.

That doesn't prevent a toe kick heater from being installed.

I know, I know, your friends won't mind looking at the new cabinets while their wearing their coats because it cold in the kitchen the other rooms. While thinking you can't afford to turn up the heat now because of all the money that you put the new cabinets.


Good luck,






and stay cool.
