Three excellent carpet transitions

Three excellent carpet transitions

It?s not unusual to transition flooring in houses; after all, not every installation is suitable for every room.

They often involve carpeting in some way. Either the homeowner needs to cover up a gap between carpet flooring and another surface or accommodate height issues.

The carpet edge gripper

This is one of the most common transition strips. These are metal and come in various colors, with little tacks.

All you do is stretch the carpet over the transition strip. Then, slide it into the slot, attach it to the tacks, and voila! The edges are now finished.

The flat metal transition is similar and often used to hide gaps between two adjoining rooms. With this, you drop it over and screw in the nails. Carpet store experts can advise on the best way to proceed.

The carpet-to-tile transition

This transition strip joins a low-pile carpet with a ceramic tiled room.?

The purpose of this transition is to keep the floorings on the same level. Ceramic tile can often be higher than carpet, eliminating tripping over edges.

The 4-in-1 strip

This is like a Swiss army knife. It has interchangeable parts that work with different floorings.

1.They aren't just metal anymore. I have a marble transition between my carpeted bedroom and a ceramic tiled bath.

2.It's always a good idea to use a transition, even if the two flooring products have the same thickness. Seams are often incorporated to accommodate expansion and contraction, and they can vary from room to room.
