Old dark wood and carpet and the same magnolia paint that was put on in the 80’s.
How do I cover expansion gaps?
i’ve Just put laminate floor down in my hallway and kitchen. What can I put down over the expansion gap instead of quarter round? It’s a 26’ long hallway that has no internal windows and was really dark. Now looks amazing! Thanks for any suggestions!
So beautiful, bright and shiny!

Had to fIll and sand cracks on walls before painting. Didn’t want to pull the baseboards off because it’s an old house and didn’t want to damage walls.

What's the issue with 1/4 round? Do you already have the baseboard down?
Baseboard does not to be removed for future reference. Quarter round is the only solution to cover the gap. Make sure to nail it into the baseboard and not the floor.
There are different shoe mouldings, rather than quarter round. They can add some design or look similar to quarter round and can be a little narrower.
It looks wonderful! It looked in the first picture, your baseboard were removed
Thought if that was the case you could find something thicker. You could always cut down another baseboard shorter and use that. Unfamiliar with what is available in Ireland. Good luck to you.
I had a friend who didn't want the quarter round. He put down a narrow strip of trim that was 1" by 1/4" thick or so. Looks really different and very nice. About the width of plaster lath, but about an inch high. Covers the gap well enough--depending on the width of the gap, you could use any sort of a board/trim that would be thick enough. Screen moulding would work if it's thick enough. Not sure if you have it there. Flat stock would work if it were small enough.
