Hardwood and carpet in a Baton Rouge, LA home

Engineered hardwood to carpet transition options

Engineered hardwood is an excellent choice for many rooms in your home, with specific benefits that will serve you well for up to 30 years or more, with proper care and maintenance. But how do you transition from engineered wood floors to carpet flooring?

Making the transition from hardwood flooring to carpet

The easiest way to transition between rooms where one has carpet and engineered hardwood is using carpet transition strips. These narrow molding strips help hide gaps that can be created when attaching two-floor coverings with different material compositions or different height measurements.

These strips not only create a somewhat seamless appearance, but they protect the edges of each floor covering as well, which helps them reach the lifespan they are expected to have in place. It can also be essential to use transition pieces larger than what you think you need, especially if safety and fall prevention are required.

The good news is that these pieces are no longer reduced simply to aluminum strips as you see regularly, especially from the past. Now, you can find materials such as hardwood, which give your floors a sleeker, more beautiful appearance, even in areas that do not see a lot of traffic.
