Question No Quarter Round for Moulding...

I am planning on installing Pergo Presto laminate flooring. I do not want to use the 1/4 round as I don't like the finished look it provides. If I remove the moulding on the base of the wall, butt up to the drywall (leaving a 1/2 inch gap - the width of the drywall) and then replace the moulding, will this provide enough coverage to make it so you can't see any gaps?

Does anyone have any experience with this.

Thanks,

Andy

The purpose of the quarter round is to cover the expanision and for looks. If you do not like the way it looks and can leave plenty of expansion under the base I can not see a problem.

In my opinion quarter round should match the base not the floor.
I would avoid 1/4 round if possible. There are times that it can not be avoided.

YOU MUST LEAVE PLENTY OF ROOM FOR EXPANSION!!!!
