Looking for narrow midcentury-style baseboards

mcmjillyApril 20, 2011

I'm doing some work on my house and need to replace some of the baseboards. The house is from the 1950's with original trim. The baseboards are narrow. Maybe 2 inches tall with no embellishment. Oak. All I can find are frou-frou tall baseboards with curves. Does anyone know where I can find something more in keeping with the style of my house? Oak baseboards that are 2 inches tall and that lack any sort of decorative carving.

thanks.

We have been doing some renovating of our mid-century modern home (1959) and needed to replace some oak baseboard. Our GC went to a local mill to have it milled. It was more expensive than the box stores but not terribly so.

Hope this helps.
