You should have left room for the carpet to be tucked under the baseboard. Normally 1/2". If berber carpet and heavy foam (8 pound) 3/4".

Typically 1/4-1/2 makes trimming in the carpet a little easier, but it is not nessecary. If you are having the carpet professionally installed it should pose no problem at all.
