Hi ......why do you need the change......has the grade of flooring become different in an adjoining room?...........or just a preference adjustment?

If you could upload a couple of photos it would help out considerably

I am replacing the molding in one room, and it'll be easier to transition than to rip the trim for the entire room. It will be only at this side of the archway, so I appreciate any suggestions you may have. (I have yet to paint the trim).
