Quarter round placement / opinions and suggestions
 
2 Attachment(s)

I have attached two photos, same problem, different side of the hallway. Both of these baseboard trim pieces come up against carpet in our family room. The quarter round trim ends on one side of the door casing on both sides, but obviously, I would like to trim out the unfinished side as well. My question is, how can I accomplish this without it looking as though part of the trim is missing? Would you run quarter round down to the end of the wall, including the carpeted areas? Should I terminate the quarter round at the transition? Opinions? Thanks!

Yeah... that trim is definitely getting a repair as well. I "shimmed" it in another area with an original piece of the trim, cut to fit the space, then sealed and painted. It is almost impossible to tell that it was not even before. ( Opinion ? )

Also, second opinion time... I cut the quarter round and bumped it up against the transition strip. ( See attached picture. ) It still looks "unfinished" to me. The second picture I have attached is a lenth of QR thats runs into the carpeted area ( disregard the fact that it is running over the transition ). Does anyone add QR to the baseboard trim on carpeted areas, or, will this look bad / incorrect? Opinions?

Looks like this job turned out pretty good. I have attached some pictures of the final results. I took the advice I receoved here, and, replaced the door casing trim as well to get rid of the gap at the bottom. Thanks for all of your opinions / assistance.
