I just re-did my dining room with new snap-on wood floor, baseboard
etc. I used a 5 1/4" base board (height). Since I replaced the door
casings, it looks nicely matched.
However, I am feeling lazy now to replace the thin clamshell casings on
all the other doors that I have and so plan to use a 3 5/8" ht.
baseboard in the rest of the house instead so that it matches somewhat
the thinner casings elsewhere. Do you think this will look noticeably
different when I sell the house?
I know this is a subjective question so please folks, I am serious
here; no smart alec responses.
I'm in the process of updating cosmetic things around our house and my first
thought was "Yes!". But the more I think about it, if the baseboards matched
*within* each room, I probably wouldn't notice and if I did, I don't think I'd
mind. It's the mismatched finishes that are terribly noticeable. I have heard
people comment that the baseboard height/quality represents the overall quality
of a home and since it's fairly cost-effective and not very time-consuming, I'd
go ahead and replace them.

They might notice especially if you empty the house before selling but it
shouldn't effect any resale price. Most people want a few easy things to
fix up right away anyhow, it makes them feel more at home. People only
deduct for things that have to be fixed not little cosmetic foibles.
Many homes have one or more rooms trimmed differently due to patchwork
remodeling, its normal. the look all depends on how each room flows to the
next and if both trims are visible at the same time in a broad view.
