ca 1920s farmhouse remodeled in early 80s. Built-in typical kitchen cabinets (actually I built them for the folks when they redid the house) w/ standard toe kick space. Dad used the chintzy vinyl baseboard (I went home after the cabinets were done so didn't get a chance to nyet that :) ) and it has long since passed it's prime (if it ever had one).
Anyway, rest of the house has either 12" or 8" (upstairs) baseboard w/ 15" corner blocks at the doors. The corner blocks are still at the doors and I'm looking at replacing the baseboard. The kitchen is small and it seems like the 12" is a little too big so I'm pretty sure I'm going to go back w/ 8". Question is is there a better way to come to the face of the cabinet other than just cut out and go under the toe kick?
Rico/Edwin, I remember one of you talking about some wide baseboard not too long ago...you've run into the problem I would imagine. Any creative solutions/alternatives?
W/ all the old houses we did in VA, I don't remember ever trying to fit the baseboard up against a conventional cabinet, amazingly...
