  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates to building construction. More specifically, the invention relates to interlocking interior trim, molding, or modular baseboard assemblies for use around walls and stairs.
  • 2. Description of the Related Art
  • In recent years, the home flooring industry has expanded its number and styles of do-it-yourself flooring, allowing many homeowners to install attractive wood and tile floors themselves. The flooring technology has evolved to allow these wood and tile systems to be installed using as few specialized tools and materials as possible.
  • Most homes have baseboards that are secured to the bottom of the walls, above the intersection with the flooring. These baseboards are used to cover the joint between the wall and the floor, as well as to provide decoration. As homeowners are increasingly installing flooring themselves, they therefore must also install the baseboards themselves.
  • These do-it-yourselfers require baseboards that may be assembled easily and without requiring many specialized tools or materials. The homeowners may desire uniquely decorative baseboards, or simple traditional designs. Therefore, the baseboards should be modular to allow for different styles and designs of baseboards to be installed. The baseboards may be installed in rooms or along staircases.
  • Thus, interlocking interior trim solving the aforementioned problems is desired.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The interlocking interior trim is a modular baseboard system that may be installed without using additional specialized tools or materials. Dubbed the Snap-N-Go Systems, the baseboard sections are stackable, and will connect to each other using tongue-and-groove or equivalent joints, before being secured to the wall using an adhesive backing or other common fastener. The interlocking trim is designed to allow the typical homeowners to install the trim themselves. The trim may be fabricated from wood, plastic, fiberboard, PVC or any suitable and conventional material.
  • The interlocking trim can be used around the bases of walls of a room, as a chair rail, as crown molding or along a staircase, door or window. When used along a staircase, the sections are cut at an angle to allow the system to run parallel to the slope of the stairs.
  • These and other features of the present invention will become readily apparent upon further review of the following specification and drawings.
