Luxury vinyl flooring to carpet transitions

Luxury vinyl flooring to carpet transitions

Wouldn't it be nice if you could use the same flooring throughout the house? What a convenience! 

That's impossible, though, because every room has different needs. For instance, the carpeting may work great in the bedroom, but luxury vinyl flooring is best for wet areas–or anywhere there’s a chance of spilled liquid or dropped food.

The great thing about luxury vinyl is its high-end style that works in any room. In addition, it is waterproof, durable, low maintenance, and easy to install.

What transitions do

Different types of flooring have different heights. These variations cause overhangs, tripping hazards, and rough edges.  

Transition strips also provide smooth, cohesive visuals and even focal points. They're no longer those aluminum strips but come in wood, marble, and other decorative looks.

The luxury vinyl-carpet transition

Sometimes it's a matter of budget. For example, luxury vinyl flooring in a stone look gives a room like an enclosed sun porch a stylish look at an affordable price. It costs far less than genuine stone, however.

You have a couple of options. First, the carpet gripper (sometimes called a carpet strip) is an aluminum rod with "teeth" that grip the rug’s edges. It’s often used when one of the floors lies lower than the other.

The 4-in-1 strip is like a Swiss Army Knife. It has interchangeable parts that work on different floors. 

Do I always need a transition strip?

Whether you're choosing luxury vinyl plank flooring in Sarasota, FL, or another type of surface, a transition strip is always a good idea.

Rooms have seams to accommodate expansion and contraction. The strips cover any gaps and also provide an often much-needed visual break.
