putting in new floor-trim around fireplace,remove-replace?

Putting in new floor and underlayment, have to go around fireplace. There is quarter round trim around ceramic tile (5x20 and I hate it) on floor in front of fireplace. Do I take up trim and lay underlayment to 1/4" of tile and same for new floor tiles? Then what do I replace the trim around fireplace ceramic tile with? There will only be 1/4" height difference from floor to fireplace floor tile. So do I leave the 1/4" gap around the fireplace tile and what trim can I cover the gap with if I only have 1/4" height difference left? Thanks so much.

Use a 4" diamond masonry blade. Use the flooring to mark the height you want to cut. Ynder cut the tiles and anything behind it, so the flooring slides underneath it.

Smile 1/4 inch difference?

From your post I can't tell if the new flooring is higher or the fireplace tile is higher and I don't want to assume before suggesting how to make this transistion.

I'm also not sure if it's the fireplace tile or the trim you hate.
