Default floor molding

I was at a home depot and they were selling a batch of 140 ft for $34. It listed as windows & door molding. Can I use it as floor? This is for the living room. The molding is 2 1/4 inch height which is the same as my current.

Is there any differences in terms of fitment? The sales guy told me the floor molding was made for water contact

As far as I know all trim (door, window & floor) is made out of the same material.
Floor trim doesn't seem to be as thick as window & door trim. So you might end up with a weird looking joint where the floor trim meets up with door tirm.

I think that would do, just ask for a carpenter's help so the aseembly would fit in.

Thanks guys. I will replace the door trim too. The last time I did the trim for the whole house, I use the same molding for door and floor (never was aware of such differences besides height).
