Awesome Transition Between Hardwood and Carpet
Creating an orderly transition between hardwood and carpet from hard floor carpet can present a puzzling challenge unless you have the right materials and tools. A variety of wood moldings are available to create the transition. For a carpet under the wood transition stack, the easiest solution is a reducing wood molding, which would also work for a ceramic tile for the transition of the wood. A molding reducer is a wooden molding strip where one side of the strip is beveled and the top is flat.
Molding transition between hardwood and carpet reducer work for glue-down and wood nailed floors, as well as for floating wood floors. T-molding would work if the carpet and the wooden floor have the same height. T-molding is flat at the top and beveled on both sides. A keel of wood runs along the length of the molding at the bottom, giving it a T shape in profile. Give or create a 1-inch gap between the carpet and the wooden floor. If you need to create vacuum, pull the carpet again and cut with a carpet knife.
Pull the transition between hardwood and carpet and the back padding 2 inches from the edge and insert wedges of the wooden mat between the subfloor and the bottom of the filler. Wood wedges should extend into the space between the carpet and the hard floor.
