Should I use quarter round?

So, we pulled up the old vinyl floor yesterday and put down the wood vinyl planks. It looks great! Except. There are a couple spots where we couldn't get the flooring under the wall. We were thinking of using quarter round to cover the whole floor along the edges. Anyone have experience with this? And should the qtr round match the cabinets or the flooring?

I would suggest a flexible caulking to cover the gaps.

IF and this is a big IF you decide to use 1/4 round, choose the smallest you can find. I have seen so many flooring jobs on houses messed up by the do-it-yourselfers using 1/2 inch or even 5/8 quarter round. The proper trim would be a small shoe mold, rather than quarter round. If the gap you want to fill is small, then by all means use caulk like trackman suggests.
IMHO quarter round smacks of ineptitude in craftsmanship.

We decided to go with caulk. I didn't realize it came in different shades. I'm learning. Thank you all!

I have oak cabinets and installed the Traffic Master Allure Oak vinyl flooring and wood molding where it abuts the walls. I used a staple gun to mount the molding to the floor. This has been in for 4+ years.

No need to be mean, Doc. We can't all afford 40' 4 slide out RVs. :-( I'm quite happy with my little inheritance. It smacks of memories of my daddy.

Hey all,
One should install that which is comfortable to the individual. Life is too short for anything else

Not being mean, but have noticed that on this forum and others I belong to, there are always those that think everyone is wealthy or must have the best of everything. Not everyone can afford to drive the biggest and best, some of us like the rigs we have and they are what we can afford. I applaud those that remodel their rigs, and figure out how to do it, I would never have thought to use colored caulk, I would have use the 1/4 round or cove molding or maybe just a piece of flat trim from Home Depot. I really do enjoy this forum and get a lot of help and info from it, just keep in mind with your answers that not everyone has unlimited funds or knows how to do every project as a professional would have. Rant over, and the flooring does look good and I may go that route when the carpet is wore out or am just tire of vacuuming...LOL How do you get the carpet out from under the slide(it must be out, got that)and get the wood under it..

To those that have replaced the carpet with flooring of some type, Did you notice any increase in road noise? My carpet is getting old.

No to the added noise.
