quarter round is used to cover up shitty work or expansion gaps on floating floors.
Doesn't trim without quarter-round on a tile floor just look unfinished to you?
Or is it no bother because nobody will ever be in your house to see it?

do you know the purpose of quarter round? The two reasons I stated previously and the third is for hard surfaces installed over unlevel subfloors so quarter round can be used to contour the floor easier than baseboard itself. It’s not the correct way to do it.
Brick is a handyman. A jack of all trades and master of none. I've been been watching trim carpenters put down quarter round,base mounding,shoe...whatever you want to call it on every application for a "hard floor" on every job for 22 years.

And every architect has a detail using quarter round on every hard floor every single time.
What is so hard to understand about that.
On every hard floor
Every single time
Every single time.
What's so hard to understand?

Many people are too cheap to buy high end 3/4 to 1 inch wide baseboard so they buy a quarter or 3/8 and slap a piece of quarter round on it. Most wood floors call for half inch expansion gaps so they have no other choice.
Oh ok now you are talking about some 1" thick trim that is popularly used nowhere.

yeah, you don’t use any. To properly finish that you pull off the wall base, undercut the door jambs, put the flooring under the jamb and reinstall the baseboard.
That's not how you properly return a piece of quarter round to a piece of mounding either. Congrats on searching for the shittiest picture on the net to substantiate your claim.
