Transitions

Transitions are used to provide safe and aesthetic changes from one type of flooring to another, as well as satisfying requirements for expansion and contraction of flooring when necessary. 

These are the most common types of transitions.  While the samples shown below are for use with hardwoods, the basic elements are the same for laminate, vinyl, carpet, etc…

Reducer

A reducer is used to make a smooth transition between floors that are different heights. Flush reducers are used for glue or nail-down flooring installation methods. Overlap reducers are required in floating floor applications to allow the floor to expand and contract.

Threshold

A threshold is primarily used to finish off the end of a floor in front of a door, fireplace, or other area where you may want a more finished look. This piece can also be used against carpet. The carpet butts up next to the rounded edge, while the lip covers the end of the hardwood.
