I have some old skirting (I believe baseboard is the familiar term for most of you: the wood covering the join between my floor and walls).
The floor tiler failed to tell us that it could easily be removed before tiling and re-done afterwards (and should be if you want it to look good, which is obviously the point of getting new tiles). So now I have a very expensive and nice tile floor that looks a bit cheap and shoddy because the edges are a bit messy and the skirting is old (and uneven in places), and I can't remove it because the tile is holding it in.
How can I cover it up?
I'm imagining there is a product out there somewhere which is sort of a trim for concealing smaller old trim like mine. Looks just like largish trim but is "hollow" underneath, like in this ascii-art diagram:
WALL : : : :-------IMAGINARY CONCEALING TRIM :\____ | :__ | | : | | | :.|..|_|.........FLOOR ^ | OLD SKIRTING
Does anything like this exist?
Or any better solutions?
Quarter round has been mentioned, and that hides the bottom of the trim (skirting/baseboard), but I also need to hide the top (it's very uneven and clearly lower than in adjoining rooms).
