A vinyl floor base is also known as a cove base. It is a strip of vinyl that is applied at the bottom (or base) of a wall to hide irregularities of the wall or help protect the base of the wall. Vinyl floor base gives a finished look to a room while protecting the base of the wall from vacuum cleaners, children’s toys, and furniture that may bump or rub against it. It stops scuffs and scratches from being made on the wall.
Vinyl floor base comes in multiple sizes to fit the job. It can be purchased in strips up to four (4) feet long. It can also be purchased in coils up to 120′ long. There are different heights also. It comes in four (4) to six (6) inches in height. The desired height depends on the height of the ceilings in the room and the personal preference of the consumer. Thickness is another measurement to consider. The bases can be purchased in thicknesses ranging from 0.08 to 0.125 inches. A thicker base allows for more protection. It can also have a ‘toe’ small lip on the bottom of the vinyl floor base it can be ‘toeless’. This feature is the choice of the designer, contractor, homeowner, or installer.
