Product Guide

Classy Corners is proud to offer a unique line of corner blocks which come in a variety of designs and lengths. Our corner blocks are available for both¬†the ¬ĺ” bullnose and conventional square corners used throughout your home or office.Our Corner Blocks can accommodate baseboards up to 11/16” thick.

Classy Corners standard corner block lengths are
4¬Ĺ” (450)¬†¬†5¬Ĺ” (550) 6¬Ĺ” (650)¬†7¬Ĺ” (750)

Our corner blocks are manufactured from Basswood, a durable hardwood suitable for paint or stain. Other materials can be used to match your interior decorating needs. We recommend the corner blocks be installed ¬ľ” higher¬†than the full base height.

Example: If a 5¬ľ” wide baseboard is to be used, a 5¬Ĺ” (550) corner block¬†would be installed. If a 5″ wide baseboard is selected, a 5¬Ĺ” (550) could be¬†cut down to 5¬ľ” to accommodate your needs. However, the baseboard and ¬†¬†corner block can be installed at any height to suit your individual needs.

NOTE: We would not recommend removing more than ¬Ĺ” from the length of our decorative corner blocks. Removing too much from the bottom of the corner block will decrease the space between the bottom of the decorative¬†image and the floor coverings.If other lengths are preferred, a custom size can be fabricated at a nominal fee.

TIP: Our Flared Corner Block Series are curved and tapered in their length. Attention should be given to the thickness of the baseboard in the tapered section of the corner block. The corner block is narrowed down to a little over ¬Ĺ” in thickness in the tapered section. Many baseboards are available to compliment this design.

A few advantages of using corner blocks rather than mitering the corners of the baseboard are…

  • Our corner blocks with the ¬ĺ” radius or square corner when pushed tightly against the corner bead will automatically become perpendicular to the floor. A mitered corner will often have gaps which will need to be re-cut to fit and caulked.
  • Using our corner blocks, the baseboard can be cut to 90 degrees, which will butt in tightly against the edge of the corner block. No mitered joint is required which allows for an easy and quick installation and a clean and decorative look.
  • Minimal caulking is required. The seam between the baseboard and the corner block will be minimal and easy to caulk.
  • Corner blocks, unlike conventionally mitered corners can be easily removed and replaced if and when they become damaged.¬†Our hardwood corner blocks are less receptive to damage than our competitor’s softwood products.
