Hello AT,

What is the baseboard rule with concrete floors.

We're pouring concrete floors in our new loft conversion and I want to avoid traditional baseboards.

What I have in mind is the floor coming up the wall a few inches to form a sort of lip under/behind the gyprock - so the flooring will run up behind the wall rather than a baseboard running up in front...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Is this even possible?

I'm hoping you guys can shed some light.

If it wont work I'd love to know about some alternatives to traditional baseboard materials....maybe platic, rubber or metal of some kind?

Thanks! Carla
