Question Baseboards

I have just repainted my kitchen & would like to put new baseboards on. Is it Ok to use wide ones in one room and narrow ones in the other parts of the house. It is not an open plan & the house is 11 years old.

certainly, you can do whatever you want. but they should all be the same or very similar (as it would be done by the builder when it was new).

the only time i would think it would be okay for trimwork to vary would be, for example, more ornate trim in formal rooms like dining rooms or formal living rooms, when family rooms or upstairs bedrooms would have smaller or no trim.

it would also be okay temporarily, if you were going to be changing the other rooms also, one by one, as you redo them.

Find a nice match for the rest of the kitchen molding and go right ahead. After you see how much nicer a good size base board looks you'll probably want to do the rest of your public rooms anyway.
