Gap between vinyl and tub


What edging or molding should I use to close the slight gap between new vinyl flooring and the bath tub?

It doesn't look complete or finished without something...not sure what.

Most people just caulk, but there is a peel and stick trim strip you can buy at home centers.

I'd rather live with the gap!

Yep, caulking is the answer.

You could put a piece of round there, paint it to match the tub.

Depending on the type of vinyl. With IVC vinyls, you can't nail thru it. I suppose you could glue the 1/4 round to the tub.
