Houzz is the new way to design your home.

I recently bought a house but the previous owners had installed wooden crown moulding but left the baseboards white. The baseboards are the traditional cheap 1.5 inch baseboards, not the more modern ~3 in baseboards. My husband and I have more modern tastes so I kind of want to paint the moulding white, but we have wooden blinds and the banister on the stairs are wooden with iron spindles. Do I install matching wooden baseboards or paint them white? Also, the previous owners put tile throughout the house, minus the bedrooms. We're on a budget since we bought the house and have a baby on the way, but it's driving us nuts!
