Ok, the current floor is laminate and was laid not even 6 months ago. The molding wasn't removed, as you'll see from the pictures, and a gap has been left around some entrance ways. Anybody have any options on how to fix this so it can look more appealing? I was thinking of re-doing the molding to something a little thicker in size and maybe laying some tile in front of the fireplace, or all areas. Not sure what it'll look like or if I should even bother. I'd really like to fix this eye sore the right way, the first time.
