this might be the weirdest forum battle ever

 

went from a box being too small for cats, to a quarter round fight

 

seen 10, 12, and 15 round fights but never a 1/4 round fight

The ONLY reasons qr is ever needed is if the baseboard is thin, like 1/4 or 3/8, then the floor does not have sufficient room for expansion and contraction with the seasons, or if the floor is not quite level, or if the installer made some cuts a bit too short. QR is good for one thing, kindling in my fireplace. Quarter round doesn’t fly in million dollar homes or in starter homes. Where are you seeing this done I might start a school out that way and teach these guys right from wrong.

As you mentioned. Shoe is needed on typical 3/8trim

Also floors just aren't always level. So at some point, more times then not the trim will be floating over a dip in the floor, or floating over a low corner.

So a 2 piece system, that being trim and shoe will cover these disparities. In addition to that, it's offers overall aesthetic appeal.

You can see a gap over one of sleepys floor tiles. Might just be an 1/16th of an inch. You can call that shitty work if you want but the truth of the matter is it needs a piece of quarter round.

no it’s all laziness. Many hours of floor preparation go into leveling sub floors for this reason weather it be sanding down wood or filling or grinding down concrete. The new standards for expansion, contraction on hard floors is now often bypassed by having drywall guys hold their Sheetrock up to allow for keeping flooring closer to the wall where the 3/8 base then covers fine. Also a trim guy worth a shit should be scribing his baseboards or if it’s painted base you caulk, let dry, then paint. Sad to see you guys are this far behind the rest of the country.

quarter round would look the exact same going over a grout line. How would quarter round fix that problem?

You go in any old house when they built shit right. Back when hardwood was installed in every room and you are gonna see shoe in every room.

Hard to see on my phone, but it looks like a bad cut job (paint above baseboard) and the corner between tile (or laminate) and baseboard looks bad. I don't know if it's just dirt or a bad caulking job!

Laminate floors not a good idea in a bathroom. Especially since you have gaps in the pieces. Water gets in there...no bueno.

Tile preferred or the new vinyl that look like laminate/hardwood.

because of lath and plaster walls. Hard to secure baseboard to them and get it to stay where you want it so they got the baseboard secure then had something to nail into.

laminate works great in bathrooms, just need to use either sheet vinyl so completely sealed or an anti microbial click and lock system. Or a vinyl tile with grout much warmer than regular ceramic tile and easy to replace if an accident happens.
