Hello DIY brain trust,
We have a basement room that is concrete walls and floor. We don't have the money to panel and put in flooring, so we painted it and that was a huge improvement.
My wife would like to add some baseboards or quarter-round trim at the floor in order to improve the appearance. However, the walls are not even and so:
- a strip of baseboard would meet the wall in some parts and not in others
- the quarterround would need to be more like 35%-a-round because it's not a tight 90-degree angle where the wall/floor meet
I'm wondering if there is anything commonly done in these kind of situations? Some kind of "padding" behind the baseboard/quarterround to smooth it up to the wall, or...? I don't really know what the solution might be.
Here are some pics to illustrate:
