ALL ABOUT BASEBOARD FAQ's
Baseboards are used mainly for aesthetic reasons: Just as crown molding hides the area where walls meet the ceiling, baseboards hide the connection where walls meet the floor, which may otherwise be ugly.
But baseboards also serve a very necessary function in protecting plaster walls from getting kicked or scuffed by shoes, boots, and vacuum attachments.
Most baseboards are made of solid wood because they must withstand a lot of criticism.
However, if water intrusion is a problem, composite materials like MDF (medium density fiberboard) are occasionally utilized since they are less expensive and mold and mildew resistant.
Older buildings frequently have uneven walls and floors as a result of settling over time.
Dixon has fond memories of his first apartment in New York: “There wasn’t a single 90-degree angle in the whole place,” he recalls, “but it did have wonderful mouldings, even though the floors and walls and baseboards were all wonky.”
If you’re installing new baseboards on wonky walls, it’s best to use moulding made of a composite material like polystyrene, which is more flexible than wood.
Zebra blinds are well-liked because of their beauty and usefulness.
The blinds are an appealing addition to any space because to their contrasted stripe design. The zebra blinds can be used as a creative stripe “wall decor” to add beauty and sophistication to your plain-painted walls.
In terms of utility, the zebra blinds are creative window treatments. First, when rolled down, the translucent fabric strips allow light to be filtered through. Thus, you gain privacy without giving up natural light.
Many times, zebra blinds are manufactured entirely of polyester. This high-quality material protects the blinds from wear and tear, ensuring that your zebra blinds last for a long time. A well-made zebra blind will last a very long time even if it is not made of polyester.
When buying window treatment, you definitely will not want to go for options that will need replacing in only a few years. The average lifespan of a blind is seven years, but with proper maintenance, your zebra blinds can survive for many years.
Because they can filter light, zebra blinds are among the best window treatments for living rooms. The sheer fabric strips allow natural light to filter into living rooms and make the spaces feel energetic.
They are also great for bedrooms. You can easily overlap the solid strips to completely block out light in the early morning hours. Rooms can be brightened by natural light without sacrificing privacy.
