I wonder if in this case using commercial type vinyl roll baseboard in say a neutral beige color would have looked better? I know in a house installing the ceramic under the cabinets tends to be looked at as the proper method. In an RV i'm assuming that butting the cabinet would be the proper method? I think Ernie here hit the nail on the head for the difference between a "pro" and a handy person. Attention to detail. the middle of a floor is always easy, as is a large rectangular room. It's all the finishing details that make or break an installation. Using not just proper finishing but also proper transitions if you go between 2 different types of flooring. I've seen a job where someone used duct tape between the tile and carpet. Can you say beautiful?

If you are ever in Elkhart Indiana, Bradd and Hall does renovations on motorhomes and they would know how to do it professionally.
