Our floor transition ideas will leave you inspired
There was a time where a transition between different materials was done in straight lines, separated by a plate of some sort. Although this served a function, visually, it was not very impressive. Fortunately, times are changing and new design standards are more prominent. In this post, we will look at floor transition ideas, giving you some great examples on what can be achieved.
What type of transitions are most common? Obviously, transition between wood flooring is the most common, but the design standards for those are well established. The real transitions are between different materials, with the most dramatic ones between different materials. The transition between tiles and wood flooring is the most impressive one, yet it is a set of materials that are very common. As you will see, transitioning floors between tiles and wood floors can be visually interesting, achieved through patterns and geometric styling.
The benefits of transitioning floors in this way are many. Not only do they add a visually appealing design, they also add value to your home. That designer aspect is much sought after and this method allows you to integrate spaces in a smoother way.
Although we generally see floor transitions between tiles and hardwood floors, this concept can apply to other materials too, such as vinyl flooring and carpet. So, lets get down to the images. Our pictures show you some great examples of how to do it properly, in a design led and visually appealing way.

There are many ways in which you can transition floors. The main ones are as follows. A monochromatic way, where you are joint two plain materials together, they will have similar tones. The second way is to add drama. This may be by using a very dramatic tile, and matching that with a hardwood floor. The contrast between the two really stands out. Finally, you can use texture and pattern to separate two distinct flooring using matching colors.
You can use either hardwood transition strips or trim strips. As you can see in some of the images, the transition can also be done by cutting the material to seamlessly fit.
Normally, you would use a hardwood transition strip, which is fitted between the two floors. You can of course cut them in accurately, but that would very much be dependent on the type of material being used.
It really depends on your style. If you have straight edge finishes, then you need to fit a transition strip. If it is a more detailed cut, for example hexagon tiles into wood flooring, you need to cut the wood flooring into the shapes. You can apply grout or silicone between any gaps.
Our floor transition ideas should give you something to think about. Of course, you may need to put in more work to achieve the effect, but the end results are totally worth it. You achieve a premium looking floor using the exact same materials that you would have used anyway. Simply adding in this design style adds plenty of value. Seamless transitions where one room flows into another, a wonderful modern look with just a little more effort.
