Design Inspiration When Transitioning from One Type of Floor to Another

Do you always need a straight edge between tile and hardwood, or can you be more creative with the transition? Here’s some inspiration for how you can transition from one type of flooring to another, brought to you by Aaron from River City Tile who joins Paul on the Art of Renovation. Listen in as Paul and Aaron inspire you in these little details that can make a big difference in your home.

There are so many flooring options out there that you likely will not choose only one type of flooring throughout your whole home. But what do you need to know about transitioning from one type to another? Here are two points to think about as you plan your dream renovation:

What look are you going for?

There’s a lot of room to be creative in the little details of your home, such as how your hardwood floor transitions to your tile. However, you want to keep this in line with the overall vibe you’re aiming for. Are you a creative person who wants a very bohemian look, or are you aiming to be more traditional? Your vision for your home will help to guide you through the endless array of choices.


What is needed for your flooring transition?

In the video above, Aaron from River City Tile explains that a metal strip is not always necessary when transitioning from hardwood to tile. Knowing these details can really set you free when you’re dreaming of the look you want. This is also where speaking to an expert (or listening to expert advice, such as what we share on The Art of Renovation!) can really give you the insight that helps guide you. Knowing what all your options are, and what products are available, is always helpful!
