I hope this makes sense.
The previous owner sealed (grouted?) the bottom of the shower that
touches the floor, on the outside.
So, between the linoleum and the base of the shower there is a sealed
area that looks tacky. The linoleum is in great shape.
How can I hide this ugly seam? Is it proper to put a piece of moulding
there? Any other ideas/questions?
I tried to re-do it, and it just looks tacky.
Just be sure to clean out the old caulking before covering it with
anything. Dig it all out, then wash with bleach. This will kill any
mold thats trying to get started there. When you have a moulding strip
your happy with nail it in place, then recaulk both edges with a fine
bead of kitchen and bathroom caulking. Make sure you buy the good
stuff.. it's more expensive but well worth it.
Thanks for this info.
I did dig out the old caulking, and replace with new, and I have done
this in many homes before.
For some reason, they left an unusually wide gap. Off to Home Depot.
Thanks for the mold tip.
Thanks so much for this info.
Right now, I have a white plastic tubing placed there, and it has
double-backed tape on it. Basically, it is used to hide electrical
I like the rubber tape idea and will check into it.
