A coved wall base installation is the final touch to a completed floor covering installation. Coved wall base helps cover all of the rough edges from the resilient installation, the gap between the sheetrock and the floor, dress up walls and cabinets. The installation of the cove wall base is a minor part of the overall installation, but is responsible for many of the complaints. The following are the step-by-step illustrations of some of the methods used to install coved wall base.
Step 1: Cutting the material to the inside corner (Photo 1). Fit the seam of the base to the previous installed piece, and then form into the juncture of the walls. With a knife cut the first piece square to the corner. Place the material next to the corner so that the next piece installed will cover the cut edge.
