Tile To Hardwood Transition Bridging The Gap

Tile To Hardwood Transition Kitchen

Tile To Hardwood Transition – Ideally, the floor coverings should be opened from room to room throughout the house without interference or cracks. In a perfect world, one floor is installed at the same time for all areas. However, that is not the way the house is operated. Floors are often installed little by little over the years. Hardwood may be installed in the living room because the wood is beautiful and warm under the feet. In the bathroom and kitchen, ceramic or porcelain tiles may be installed, because the tiles are very moisture resistant.

Out of function, various types of floors may be installed only for aesthetic reasons. With different floor coverings coming in different heights in many cases, you will request a transition device because the mounting floor is higher than the adjacent wooden floor. Whether it consists of porcelain or ceramic tiles, marble, granite or other materials, floor tiles are equipped with substrate layers for installation. These layers are not analogous to the layers found in non-tile applications. Tile floors need a mortar bed.

Tiller who is good and professional can maintain almost uniform thickness. If the tiles are installed by the do-it-yourselfer with little experience, tile height may vary. Wood floors (including laminate floors) are more predictable. Subflooring, underlayment, and wood floors themselves contribute to creating a single high surface. The answer to the difference in Height is to use a sloping floor transition strip up or down from the tile floor to the wooden floor.
