In our very small bathroom (in a slab home) we have an uneven concrete floor. There is a ⅝" inch gap between the baseboard and vinyl that travels about 15½" along the baseboard. (The floor is lower than the baseboard in this spot only). We can not take up the baseboard.

Any suggestions other than a wastebasket to cover it?

Vinyl, as in vinyl flooring? Is the concrete bare at this point? A pic would help alot. –  shirlock homes Jan 28 at 20:47
    
Well there are floor leveling compounds you could use to bring up the recessed area to level. The contractors who did a bathroom job for me used it successfully to level the floor before tiling it. I haven't used it myself though. Another product you could use is Concrete Resurfacer. I'd do it in two passes, say 1/4" on first pass, and 3/8" on second. –  getterdun Jan 30 at 4:35
