Hi guys, I am totally new to DIY and was looking for a bit of advice. A while back I got some laminate flooring laid in my living room and the guy never returned to do the thresholds. Today I took the doors off and did them myself but I have an issue with the door leading to the hall. In the corner the line of the wall runs off a bit and I have a gap. I have no leftover laminate to patch it in so I am wondering what's best to do with this? At the other side of the door it is totally fine.

I have some white wood filler. Would packing it with that and smoothing it off be the best bet?

Get a nice white beading strip and nail it in.

How wide is the gap ? a piece of scotia or quadrant will do the job, the laminate edging that is made from mdf is a mare to mitre and get perfect, So use upvc or wood and paint it - with wood at least you can shape or mitre it to suit

Lift the door threshold piece cut a piece of laminate that’ll just fit under the skirting and knock it in and then put threshold back down.

It's just under an inch wide. I will try and source a small piece of wood that is a similar size.

I almost misread the thread title and was going to suggest - "make him the Home Secretary".

My bad....
