Quarter round molding is most often used to cover the gap between the baseboards and flooring. My first experience came when remodeling a 100 year old Victorian. We tried but didn't quite get the floors level around our new kitchen-dining-family room, and the builder added quarter round.
In my handyman business it also got used a lot to hold in place linoleum flooring that was started to pop up along the edges. According to interior designer Christine Fife, Christine Fife Interiors, quarter round should “… be painted the same color as the baseboard instead of stained the same color as the wood floor … and should look like an extension of the baseboard- not an extension of the floor.”
