I am finally making progress again and my wife and I are in a "battle".
How many of you actually put baseboard trim on your front theater wall ? Mine will be FR701 Black Fabric over Linocoustic using the Fabricmate setup, etc.
This is NOT a dedicated theater per say, but it is a "dedicated" theater in a open room concept, so you will see baseboard trim on the back (drywall) walls, etc.
Any "opinions" are welcome.
Below is an overhead "Drawing" of the space to give everyone a visual....
Since you are not doing a false wall, it complicates the issue. The best approach visually if you are doing floor to ceiling fabric with a track system is to have the baseboard out from the wall the same distance as the fabric. I often use wood furring for fabric so the baseboard goes over top hiding the staples, In your case you would add furring behind the baseboard then mount the fabricmate track tight to the top of that. Of course you don't want to paint it white.
If you don't put something down at the bottom of the wall you will need to be carful to keep banging it with the vacuum.
I've done front walls without baseboards. After the room was carpeted I built frames surrounding the screen, see staggered panel thread in my signature. The panels sat directly on the carpet. We removed the front wall baseboard but the side wall panels mounted on top of the existing baseboards.
Yeah, tell me about it...
What if I put the fabric walls "nearly" to the floor...then I put the trim OVER top of the fabric, treating the fabric wall like a regular wall? I would be blocking behind the fabric to allow me to nail the trim into it ? Does that make sense ?
I'm very happy with my theater, but its just not quite the level of awesome that even your simple plans come out like.
fabric to floor or if you want some protection from a vacuum, you could use a half round profile painted out
