Ideas for hiding gaps between floating floor and wall/trim
 
Hi, I installed a floating floor in my home. I purchased this home one year ago and this was the first improvement project I've ever attempted. Overall I'm pleased with the outcome. The remaining task necessary to complete this project is to deal with a few spots were gaps are present between the floating floor and the wall. I have posted some photos of these problem areas below. Your input is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hey, you can use a small quarter-round molding to cover the gaps, or take some scrap pieces of flooring and cut to fit individual areas and apply with a little Heavy Duty liquid nails for a finished look, it's a lil tidies but you will be happy overall and it only cost a lil time and $2 bucks for the glue

If you have any boards left over , pull those , undercut the jams , and install new ones to go under .
