Don't paint walls before installing baseboards - here's why.

While it may seem like a good idea to paint the walls first and then install the baseboards to save a few pennies, this approach can actually end up costing more in the long run. By not properly prepping the baseboards before installation, you risk leaving gaps and cracks between the baseboard and the wall, which can lead to unsightly lines and uneven paint coverage. Additionally, leaving the caulk on the baseboards unpainted can cause further issues. As time passes, it may begin to collect dust and grease, making it nearly impossible to keep clean.

When it comes to painting interior trims or baseboards, achieving a polished and flawless look is essential. To accomplish this, it's crucial to caulk gaps and fill any holes in newly installed baseboards using painter putty. By doing so, you can avoid unsightly gaps and achieve a clean and professional finish. Moreover, painting the trim and baseboards before starting the walls will minimize mess and result in the best possible outcome.
