Make your baseboard more dramatic...add small pieces of trim to the top of existing baseboard, add a few inches and add another piece of molding. Paint the wall and trim white. This also works for crown molding too!
We tried removing exisitng baseboards in or house to add new bigger ones and it was a disaster so we ditched that idea. Gonna add thin cap moulding to existing baseboards to make them appear new.Way less work too......E*
