Unless you plan to install the same flooring throughout the entire home, you will need flooring transitions. Transition mouldings are strips that cover the gaps between floor areas, and provide seamless transition between them.
Types of Flooring Transitions
T moulding is used to transition between two floor areas of equal or similar heights. It’s called T moulding because of its shape looks like the alphabet T. If you have different types of flooring in your home, there may be height differences between them. This is often due to thickness of the floorings and also underlayments. If the height difference is more significant, you can use a reducer moulding to achieve a smooth transition. Stair nosing is also a type of transition moulding, which many flooring manufacturers don’t offer.
Store Bought Transition Mouldings
Depending on the flooring you purchase, the manufacturer may or may not offer matching mouldings; and while most hardware stores will carry transition mouldings, chances are they won’t perfectly match for your pre-purchase floorings. You could remove the stain and restain them if they’re made of wood, but stain matching is an art of its own. Also, if the transition between two floor areas aren’t straight, these store bought moulding strips won’t fit. We can save you the frustration and time by custom making flooring transitions to match the thickness, colour and shape of your flooring perfectly.
