Transitions are often not considered until the laying stage of the project, however its the small details like these that have a great impact on the overall design so we recommend planning them right from the start. Get these details right and you'll end up with an expensive looking floor!

Before you start

Flooring surfaces usually look best when they meet at the same height. Different flooring finishes (e.g. carpet vs wood) come in different heights so to achieve a flush height between surfaces you will need to plan this from the start with your builder and flooring installer. Timber flooring is often the thickest surface so that may determine your height, then the areas of carpet/tile etc may need to be built up so that they meet flush with the timber flooring once installed.

Straight edge transitions

Straight edge transitions are the most common and look great in any application. Your timber flooring meets flush with the adjoining floor surface providing a smooth transition with a straight edge between surfaces - It's classy, timeless and understated! Pair with a metal trim or timber border detail to add some wow factor!

Curved transitions

Curved transitions are not very common but can be achieved. The timber flooring meets flush with the adjoining floor surface providing a smooth transition with a curved edge between surfaces - It's definitely a look that will turn heads!

Irregular transitions (wood to tile only)

Irregular transitions are less common as they are quite fiddly to achieve however they can make a stunning statement! Rather than cut your tiles to form a straight edge between timber flooring and tiles, you can let your tiles lead the design, using them to create an irregular outline that seemlingly spills out onto the floor rather than being defined by a straight edge. Again, this is something you would need to work with your builder on to ensure your heights are set up correctly in order to achieve this.

Doorway transitions

Experience has taught us that a plank laid horizontally in a doorway always looks smart! You can get your installer to cut the board to match the width of the doorway, or alternatively you can go narrower if you want a more understated look.
