Hot water baseboard pipe in front of door

I bought a 60's bi-level in pretty good condition aside from a lot of general aesthetics. I'm currently redoing the basement and have my new white oak floors in. I'm about to start redoing the baseboards in plinth blocks and in front of my sliding glass door, the hot water pipe for the baseboard heaters runs directly in front of it. They have this unsightly galvanized steel strip in the shape of an angle iron screwed into the sill plate on the sliding door to protect the pipe from being stepped on. I was going to put a quarter round in front of it to join the floor with the door but is there anything I can do it hide it in general? Should I rip a furring strip thin enough to cover it and glue it on or something?
