Flush Baseboard Drywall Reveal


thinking about adding this detail to my house (walls are open)

Aiming to use the Fryreglet brand with a 1/4" reveal

Any of you guys ever did this? Any tips?

Re: Flush Baseboard Drywall Reveal


I did this a lot when I was in an architect office recently, multiple residential and some commercial.

I was just thinking about it again and if you could pop this board off and get access to your wiring for future adaptation it could be a real asset. May want to look into “sill lights” as outlets, pretty sleek.

I do feel that having a solid piece of wood there for a “mop board” durability function makes a lot of sense. I’ve seen some drywall to reveal to floor details that probably hold up poorly.

I did a flush baseboard project. We used Hardie cement board, Aqua-defense and then a Trim-Tex Architectural Reveal bead with a Tear-Away Gasket Bead between the flooring and flush base.

Ha! actually saw this video on youtube before i posted here. How does the hardie and mud hold up? Since I been researching, I've been leaning towards an actually piece of wood for the base, just for durabilty and avoid having any mud cracking over time. I could see my robot vacuum just knocking in the base frequently
