Modern designs can sometimes call for more modern solutions, and these days, your base trim doesn’t necessarily mean using baseboards. To see what we mean, just check out a recent project from the reno pros at Refresh Home Improvements, where they decided to use our F Reveal Bead for modern base trim sans baseboards. This design features an eye-catching trimless reveal detail running along the bottom of their drywall that makes the walls look like they’re floating above the floors.
Use F Reveal Bead for Modern Base Trim (with No Baseboards!)
In the above video, RHI’s Dan and Steve Tuer take you step-by-step through the process of installing F Reveal Bead for modern base trim — as you might have noticed, it’s not the easiest process in the world, but the results are worth it.
To start, if your drywall’s already hung, you’ll need to cut out a section of the boards to fit the bead for your reveal detail (or, if you’re starting from scratch, you can just hang the drywall with the appropriate amount of space left between the sheet and the ground). How large that gap is depends on the size of the F Reveal Bead you’re using, as they range anywhere from ½” to ⅝”. RHI is using that largest ⅝” F Reveal Bead, so he cuts away ¾” from the drywall to fit the bead inside the gap left in the base.
