Finish trim after floor replacement.

I've been working on and have almost completed repairing the water leak in the back of the my 2009 25FB. While I have everything torn apart (on the street side) I thought it might be a good time to upgrade the floor. I'm not sure what I would use yet (just started investigating the options) but regardless I will need to use trim around the edges. The biggest issue is around the sink peninsula. I really don't want to remove all the cabinetry and stove, etc.

Has anyone successfully installed a new floor, like LVT, without removing the sink peninsula? And if so, how did you finish the trim around the peninsula?

Thanks!

Assuming that's a before shot and you'll have new floor edge up against the stainless kick trim that won't look as nice.
My thought would be some PVC house trim maybe 1/4 round. It's pretty flexible and if you use a heat gun to warm it up you should be able to get it to meet that curve pretty easily. You can paint it a color you'd like for the trim. Big box hardware stores have the stuff.
If you hear/bend it before the new floor goes in to get the shape you won't have to worry about heat damage to the new floor. Paint it then fasten it when new floor is done.

Yes the picture is a before shot with the original floor.

Home Depot and Lowes sells Polyurethane 1/4 round trim that will bend right around that radius.

It appears that the kick plate is screwed in on the bottom. It can probably end removed and trimmed

We put in new cork flooring & used the outside rub rail, just the centre section as trim. It bends around the curves & blends in perfectly. When at jackson centre i saw that they sell it wider than what we bought at dealer. It sticks on & has been there for a year now without coming off. Just a thought.

Sound like a creative and practical solution. Thanks! Would you happen to have any pictures to share?
