These vinyl planks require a gap along the edges for expansion. Shoe molding covers it at the walls, but we add colored caulk along the handrail base to hide the gap there, and still remain flexible.

Wyndy’s idea to expand the landing over her entryway was a great one but even after the structure was complete, she realized she was in over her head with some of the remaining details.
By re-working some of the existing handrail and adding several feet to it we’ve turned a novelty area into legitimate living space. And changing the rail stain from light to dark has taken years off this home.
The window seat and built-in shelves will make it functional for Parker but they’re also an attractive addition that will improve the value of this home in years to come.
And continuing the same flooring used throughout the house into this space not only completes it, but it also makes it feel like it’s always been here — and that was our goal.
