• Tile Next to Hardwood?

    Date: 2011.05.31 | Category: Custom Tile, Tips and Advice | Tags: ,,,,,,,

    We get asked questions about placing tile next to a hardwood floor and if it can it work. Sure! The key is to make the transition seamless. If the heights are the same you will just leave a small expansion joint and fill with color matched grout caulk. Be sure edges are clean when using this method.

    If the two are not at the same level, the best option is a hard surface reducer (metal, wood, stone etc.) This floor trim will nicely transition down to adjoining floors. Either way, do not let using two different materials deter you from creating something very visually appealing in your home.
