Bvtools I am a bit confused and need some advice/help/suggestions....

Just got throught installing laminate planks in my living room, and laminate tiles in the kitchen.

The height of the two floors is of course different, and, there are several walls that go from the living room right through into the kitchen. These walls used to have baseboards that ran the lenght of the wall since the carpet and vinyl in the kitchen were at the same level.

Now that the height of the two floors is different, what is the best way for me to install the baseboard along that wall? I can't go the entire lenght as it would look be raised on one half of the wall and snug on the other. Is it simply best for me to stop the baseboard at the end of the living room and then begin another strip on the kitchen foor?...not the best option I am sure but can't seem to get past this hurdle at this time...

Thx a lot for your help in this matter...

Treat the rise as you would any step, and 45 the base up then add a piece the rise probably 3/4 then a 45 and carry on as if nothing ever happened...
