Build out base moulding


I have a few areas where the base moulding will not cover some of the gaps between the floor and the wall (yes I realize I probably could have a done a better job in some areas-but I did best I could)- In light of that- Is there way to "build-out" at least the bottom of the base moulding where it meets the floor and still lays relatively flush on top? Just figured I'd ask......just to cover a few small gaps

there are a variety of smaller moulding you could use depending on the desired result and the type of existing baseboard.
shoe moulding is the typical one. Also 1/4 round and even a flat 1/4" (or 3/8 or 1/2" wide by 1" high (or highe) used on the font of a baseboard.

is it that the floor is uneven? (Hills and valleys) Then do as kirk states
Or is it that the baseboard won't cover the gap between wall and flooring. Then both work.

yup quarter round or cove moulding. i personally like to use door stop trim that has close to the same profile of the baseboard. i find it gives it a much better look then quarter round.
