Carpet to tile threshold often has a height difference. At a basic level, most carpet will be taller than the ceramic tile in the look, but upon entering it, the carpet will actually sit lower than the top of the tile. This leaves a sharp edge and breaks on the tile. The threshold where the carpet and tile meet can be a source of fire or damage if it did not work properly with the two surfaces as best as possible. To join the two surfaces in a nice way you have some options.
Hose for Ideas Carpet to Tile Threshold Wedges
Carpet to tile threshold wedges were developed to add a gradual heave to the carpet beneath. Downhill go far from the threshold in all directions. This prevents you from tripping or breaking the edges of the tile. The solid surface can be adjusted to start as far back as you want and to end at the exact edge of the threshold. Wedges can be used for doors and full seams if you have a simple door-less transition between rooms.
Some people prefer to add a small strip to the edge of the carpet to tile threshold. This covers the edge of the tile and the edge of the carpet. The girdle favors the side that is higher and offers only a small ribbon as the transition. The strips protect both the edge of the tile and prevent the carpet from fraying. The strips are not as solid as some of the other options. Once the strips have been in place for an extended period of time, there may be some movement. You can choose from strips of wood, metal strips and even those that mimic the appearance of the tile. We invite you to look at our 12 tile threshold in the photo gallery.
