Just as crown molding covers up the room where the wall meets the ceiling, a baseboard covers up the joint where walls meet floors. It protects the wall from getting kicked and nicked from shoes, boots, and vacuum cleaner attachments, and the latter can do a lot of damage! Ideally, the baseboard should look like the other trim in the room, and, unlike crown moldings, they are much less ornate and easier to keep dust-free.
Baseboards can be made of solid wood or MDF, medium density fiberboard. While the typical color is often white, the most popular wood is oak. Sometimes people stain them to match the floor and coordinate with their decor.
