How do carpet and tile flooring transition?

Chances are pretty good that you will choose carpeting for your bedroom’s new floors. It’s a popular choice for this space because it’s so warm and soft.

Bedrooms often open into the bath. The most popular choice in that room is tile. It's stylish, durable, and easy to clean.

Height issues

Even rugs themselves have different heights due to the pile. Tile is always higher because it's installed with a cement board.

Without a transition, a flooring installation can look sloppy and unfinished. Edges can fray, crumble or crack. A transition also eliminates tripping hazards from overhangs.

Not all transition strips are the same

Don't assume anything will do the job. Our flooring company staff will advise you of the right one for your particular flooring issue.

Carpet-to-tile strips have thin metal inserts that lift the rug a bit. Some strips accommodate the different needs of a flooring type, whether moldings, grooves, binders, etc.

Carpet for bedrooms

Besides being warm and soft, one of the significant advantages of carpet is sound deadening. That's especially great if you have infants, young children, or shift workers who sleep at odd hours.

Carpet also provides cushioning from hard falls. That's a benefit if you have toddlers just learning to walk. Our flooring store has a wide assortment of brands like Mohawk, Shaw, Marquis, etc.

Tile for the bath

Today's bathrooms are more than just functional places. One trending look is the upscale spa atmosphere or a wood look tile.

With an almost unlimited number of designs, shapes, and sizes, you can easily create a beautiful atmosphere with high function.
