I know any contractor may roll their eyes at this, but my sister recently replaced her vinyl plank flooring and saved the old flooring that was removed and gave it to me. My wife and I have been wanting to do something different with the tile floor in our home since we bought it a few months ago. Once we got this flooring for free I was thinking about going all in and removing all the tile to put in the new floor, but the more I think about it, the more removing the tile sounds horrible.
We are now thinking of laying the plank flooring on top of the tile. My main concern is just the transition between the flooring and the carpet, I am unsure of what kind of transition strips that could be used. The subfloor is concrete just in case that’s useful.
The following are a few images of the new flooring laying next to the carpet.
To sum it up:
- What would be the best way to transition between the carpet and this flooring that would be installed on top of the tile?
- Any recommendations for installing the flooring this way?
- How dumb am I for wanting to take the shortcut and install the flooring on top of the tile?
