When I had carpet installed in my room, I had removed the baseboard from one of the walls. When the guys installed new carpet, they put it flush against all baseboards and then flush to the wall where the baseboard was missing. Now I want to put the baseboard back, but it won't look right. What I need to do is move that entire set of tack strips inward about an inch and then remove the excess carpet. Am I going to have to restretch the carpet? It will still be on the tack strips along the other three walls, so will that be enough to keep the current stretch stable or will it need to be stretched outward in the middle?
Also, yes, I know that most people remove old baseboards, install new carpet, and then put new baseboards on top, but I didn't do that.
