Installing Flooring Baseboards
You wish to install flooring baseboards by yourself, make sure you are aware of little tricks and tips prior to actual installation. You will need power miter saw, hammer, finish nails, putty knife as well as sandpaper (medium grid: range between #60-#80). Although you might not have your own power miter saw, it is a good idea to rent or borrow one, since it will make the floor baseboard installation easier and faster.
Make sure to measure the area you are planning to install floor baseboards few times in order to illuminate future difficulties and material shortage. It is also a good idea to buy extra material ( 10%-20%) just to be on a safe side.
To start, you have to find your longest wall in the area which you planning to install flooring baseboards. If you have a baseboard plank that is long enough to cover your longest wall, then just install it as it is. If you, however, need two pieces in order to cover the longest wall, then you can join the pieces with scarf joints. Notice that there are rarely a 90 degree cut requires, so use your miter saw in order to find the best appropriate angle for your baseboard corners. There are also baseboards in the market with different colors and shades, so it doesn't have to be white. You can also paint them after with the wood stain if you wish to change the original tone of the baseboards you purchased.
