I plan to remove my carpet and to install solid hardwood floor or engineered wood floor. I want to reuse my current baseboard modeling which is 3.25" in height and 0.5" or 9/16" thick at the bottom. Wood floor requires a gap of 0.25"-0.5" between floor and wall. Can I reuse my baseboard modeling to cover that gap? If I add a shoe modeling, I feel it's not the correct style to match the baseboard modeling which one side is in curve. Can I leave the gap less than 0.25"? I prefer not do install new baseboard modeling which requires extra time and money. How to do that?
