Create a Transition Between Two Types of Flooring
LESLIE: Alright, Keith in Virginia’s looking to do a tiling project. What can we help you with?
KEITH: Hi, basically my front door – the hallway from my front door to my kitchen is laminate and my kitchen is laminate. Well …
KEITH: … it turns out that it’s not the most interactive space. It’s not the best space for traffic and for water and stuff like that. So, I would like to put tile in the kitchen.
KEITH: I was wondering how would I transition from that hallway to the kitchen. Like what – is it just a matter of having just a breakpoint or …
TOM: Yeah, is there a doorway between the hallway and the kitchen?
KEITH: No, there isn’t. There isn’t.
TOM: OK. Well, at some point you’re going to have a saddle.
TOM: And the saddle is going to define the edge of the tile and the tile will come up to the saddle and then on the other side you’d have the laminate.
LESLIE: And what you would do is you would make sure that the saddle you purchase – make sure you look for one that says laminate to tile or wood floor to tile.
LESLIE: Because it’ll give you that exact adjustment so you know what your measurements are and it’ll make that transition for you.
KEITH: Oh, OK. OK, great. Well, thank you so much.
TOM: You’re welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT. 888-666-3974.
