I have my cherry baseboard coming this afternoon. I will be staining it tonight and am going to install it tomorrow. My question- I am having the floor carpeted and have been told to raise the baseboard by Â½ to Â¾ of an inch so the carpet installers can actually tuck the carpet under the base thereby removing the need for quarter round. I donâ€™t know what to do? If for some reason my baseboard is installed to high then wont the carpet looks stupid- meaning then I would have to use the quarter round anyway. Do I want to use quarter round in the first place or no?
