Laminate Transition Between Rooms

Laminate Flooring Transition – Laminate flooring is a less expensive alternative to hardwood floors. And can add a beautiful, elegant look to any room. The laminate floor comes in many colors to match any decor. When installing laminate flooring, it is important to use the proper molding. That comes as to transition from one type of floor to another. There are numerous types of trim used for the transition from laminate flooring to other types of floors. Two different types are round quarters, for the transition to a flat wall without adjustment of the base plate. And the reducer, to close the gap in vinyl or concrete floors. Cutting transition reducer between vinyl coverings for laminate flooring is an easy project that can be done by the average do-it-yourself homeowner.

Install your laminate flooring. Use a tape measure to measure a space about 1 inch wide between your vinyl floor and planks of laminate flooring. Install the trim track by adjusting the track on the 1-inch channel between the planks of the laminate floor and the vinyl floor. Measure the length of adjustment to be placed on the track. Cut the adjustment to the appropriate length with a circular saw.

Install the reducer trim fitting by aligning the slots and, from one side, pushing the track into the slot of the transition trim. Work your way through the entire adjustment piece until the adjustment is firmly established on the track in the slot. Repeat this process until the raw edges of your laminate floor have been covered with your linings.
