New Baseboard Look


We are removing our wall to change electric and out up new sheetrock and paint. I was wondering if there was a different looking baseboards out there than this standard(slant/fin) that has seemed to be around forever. Also, any reason to change those "fin" elements if they are not crushed and seem to work okay? Thanks.

There are several different types, low profile which actually resemble baseboard trim. But you need to make sure that whatever you replace it with has the same output or you will have to add additional units.

Thanks. For what your referring to I would not be replacing just the covers etc. I would be replacing the actual heating element as well? If so are there any housing that are low profile that could just be installed over the extg. heating element? Thanks.
