Crown molding can add a lot to the simplest of rooms, but what about shoe molding? In our apartment the shoe molding is stained to match the floor, which I see all the time. Personally I like it better when the shoe molding is crisp white like the rest of the trim, regardless of how much it may get scuffed. So is shoe molding really that big of a deal?
Here are three rooms without shoe molding that are to die for, but where they lack shoe molding they more than make up for it with wall moldings and the parquet floors.
