Shoe Molding Installation
Shoe molding, also known as "base shoe," is a small, thin strip of decorative molding. Designed to cover gaps that might exist between the bottom of your baseboard trim and the floor, it adds a nice decorative touch to your baseboard for an aesthetically pleasing finished look.
The practice of adding shoe molding to baseboard trim began in Europe and the United States during the Victorian era of the late 1800s. It was called "shoe molding" because it's located at the same level as, you guessed it, your shoes! It became very popular because it not only did it look good, but it was also very effective at sealing out dirt and insects. https://www.bobvila.com/articles/shoe-molding/
Nowadays, the main purpose of baseboard trim with shoe molding is to hide the transition between the bottom of your wall, which can often present with a rough unfinished edge, and your tile, hardwood, or Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) flooring. While a properly installed baseboard can usually cover this gap effectively, shoe molding finishes the look and effectively hides the inconsistencies in the flooring height.
