Reno Solution: Sleek, Simple Wood Baseboards and Moldings

Our great lesson in renovating the Laboratory was how expensive minimalist design can be, and why. When you forego moldings around doors, you actually make for more work and expense, not less. Recently, we came across Mjölk House in Toronto, Canada, designed by Studio Junction,  a stylish house that uses moldings freely while achieving a clean, modern aesthetic.

The trick: use the same simple, unadorned hardwood for both moldings and baseboards: one flows into the other without break.
