Top 2 Classic Colors for Baseboards

The top classic colors that baseboards come in are white and brown. These colors are standard colors found in many baseboards that have been installed. These colors are neutral colors that are easy to match and decorate a room with. Finding examples of these classic baseboard colors can be done by visiting an older home or open house showing to examine the baseboards yourself.

White and Brown Baseboards

White baseboards tend to be wider than baseboards that are painted brown. There is no rhyme or reason to  this other than earlier white baseboards were made a certain way and over time these baseboards were reduced in width and painted brown. If you visit an older home that was built in the first part of the 20th century, it is possible that you will find more examples of white baseboards. Homes built in the 1950s and later, particularly ranch style homes, have baseboards that are brown.

Replacing Classic Baseboards

Having these two top classic colors makes replacement of old baseboards easy and simple. You can easily find replacement baseboards at a home improvement center that have already been cut to size and match the color of the baseboard being replaced.
