Preparing to install laminate flooring in my bedroom this weekend,...
Being lazy and liking shortcuts, I gotta ask - after I get the carpet,
padding, and tackstrips up, what'd be wrong with leaving the existing
moulding where it is (it looks fine and there's a really nice caulk job
between the top of the moulding and the sheetrock wall) and just using
a piece of quarter round moulding attached to the existing moulding to
cover the expansion gap between the laminate and the moulding?
Nothing, except I would use shoe molding instead of 1/4 round.
What's the "best" choice on the correct color for the quarter round -
white to match the wall, or a stain that approximates the flooring?
Depends on what you like, I would paint it to match the base molding.
