I'm remodeling -- traditional style -- and need to select baseboard moulding. I picked 3 1/2" casing. Have a choice of 4 1/4 or 5 1/4" baseboard. Any recommendations? Is 5 1/4" too wide?? How much more does it cost than 4 1/4"?? Any help will be greatly appreciated. My builder is doing all the work. I just pick and pay.

My suggestion is this: get a sample piece of each size, place it in a location where it will be installed, and see which you prefer.

I would go with the 5" 1/4 baseboards with your 3" 1/2 casings. I recently went through the same dilemma as we completely changed all doors, door frames, casings, baseboards, etc on the first floor. My wife and are very pleased with the final results.

BTW in the bedroom we went with 6" 1/2 baseboards to go with the 4" 1/4 casings that we installed.

Cheers,

Nick
