New Floor, New Trim?
I am getting quotes for replacing our vinyl floor with porcelain tile in the kitchen/hall/half-bath/and laundry room.
Here is my question: is new trim (quarter round) necessary? It seems like it is unneeded for the most part, unless the trim is in bad shape. And since I'd have to prime and paint the new trim white to replace the old, why couldn't I just repaint the old trim so it looks new again?
I suppose in the long run over the entire cost of the floor it is a pittance but it seems like the main argument for replacing it is that it's easier to rip out than to take it up carefully for reuse. And if that's the issue, I can remove it myself. Am I missing something?
