Rules for baseboards/window frames/other woodwork matching?
I hate this sort of rule, but I have to know what the real deal is with woodwork. A few questions:
1. Do all the baseboards in my house have to be the same? (I will probably break this rule, if it is one, but just thought I should ask!)
2. If I paint baseboards, do the window frames and sills and sashes have to be painted too?
3. If your baseboards are painted, what do you do with doors? Paint just the frames, or the frames and doors or neither?
4. If there is anyone out there who has broken the rules, can you show me how it looks?
Here is just one of my current problems. Say you have a huge and permanent piece of furniture (it's a china cabinet that can't fit anywhere else) that is against a long wall shared by dining room and living room, but you see it more in dining room. Well, can I cheat and paint the baseboards in my dining room but not the living room, since the joined area will be hidden?
