Gaps in floor and molding


I just installed new doors, base and casement molding through out my home. In some areas the wood flooring does not reach the new installation and there are a few gaps that I'd like to fill in somehow. What would be the best method to fix these small areas? Here are some pics attached to help understand.
Thanks for any help and thoughts.

Gaps in floor and molding


the gaps where its just baseboard and thresholds, cut back the baseboard and install a full lenght peice, with the transition there you can do one of two things.. cut back the transition to where the baseboard will just slip in or scribe the baseboard to fit around it

at the door ways you can either take up some of the hardwood and replace it to fit or take up the transition and install a new wider peice thats scribed to fit around the door stops.

this requires a little more skill and patience , if you take your time it can be do, if your not comfortable attempting it consider hiring a finish carpenter
