    Default Gap between floor tiles and gyprock wall

    I am building some shelving for my walk in pantry. I had to remove the existing skirting board which has left a gap of 20mm wide and 12-15mm deep between the floor tiles and the gyprock wall. Iím after suggestions as to whether I fill this gap with timber or some type of tile mix/filler. Once completed this will not be seen. I just donít know if the tiles will move now that they arenít butted up to anything at the moment. Thanks.

    I would like to think the tiles are glued down firmly and won’t budge. Fill with silicone or gap filler if you wish.
    cheers

    If left, that gap might become a dirt trap. You could fill it with a wooden batten, or a section of quad or molding.

    It is usually best to leave skirtings in place and mold built-ins to suit. We live in a period house and all skirtings are still there behind or inside built in wardrobes, kitchen cabinets, bookshelves, etc.
