We will be flooring a new condo with Quickstep laminate planks. I have
questions about finishing and trims:
1. What kind of trim/molding should we use in front of a closet with
bi-fold doors? Or can we just leave as it is with the expansion space
without any molding?
2. What should we do along the walls where there are baseboard
3. How should we transition the laminate planks to the kitchen tiles
(breakfast bar area) with a quarter round curve?
Thanks in advance
Nothing, just carry it as close to the wall as you can get.
The store will carry transition pieces for most every application. You can
buy the expensive stuff to match the floor, or maybe a hardwood that you can
either stain or just poly. Your needs will vary depending of the
differences, if any, in height. If they are the same, a "T" strip will do,
if different, a piece with an offset is needed.
When you go into the closet, use a handsaw to undercut sides of the door
entrance about 1/2 inch deep at the bottom. Hopefully this will be only
thru the drywall.
This will allow expansion room and also hide the gap, You wont be able
to put moulding here, as it would interfere with the bifold doors.
