As much as your home needs a solid structural foundation, it also needs a solid visual foundation inside.
This large baseboard, a simplified version of one I found in a Victorian mansion in Detroit (more on that later), will give your home the interior foundation it needs.
It’s made from two common pieces of MDF molding. Plan to upgrade your door trim moldings if you install this baseboard.

Molding Inventory to Make this Baseboard
Baseboard Molding Profile This is the upper most piece of this two-piece baseboard. It’s a molding profile that is unique to the Victorian era.
Panel Molding Profile This is your standard, 5-1/4″ tall ogee baseboard molding. I know I say this a lot, but look at how nice the ogee detail is on this molding. Make sure you buy one with this kind of depth and resolution.
