Using carpet, hardwood & tile for creative floor transitions

Published: December 4, 2014

Many Indianapolis homes have large rooms and open floor plans that include carpet, hardwood and/or tile flooring. These are great for many reasons – they bring a family together and they provide a wonderful space for entertaining but they can be a tricky challenge for flooring. Continuous flooring is certainly an option but sometimes you want to visually divide spaces. Creative floor transitions are just what you need. And Indianapolis carpet, hardwood and tile store, Kermans, has just the design ideas to help you out.

Great tile floor transitions

Tile is probably the most popular kitchen floor choice in Indianapolis homes. More and more often we’re seeing homeowners want the convenience and look of tile but with a twist. As seen in the example above, different types of tile can be used in the same room with great effect. Here one type of tile is used to create an area rug feel beneath the kitchen island. It breaks up a large space, highlights the beautiful island area all with tile.

Transitioning from hardwood to tile

Perhaps you have tile in your kitchen and hardwood in your great room. How do you go from one floor to the other? Check out the beautiful tile to hardwood transition below – the two floors literally flow together to both divide the spaces and pull them together.

Going from tile to carpet

Above is one of the most practical tile to carpet transitions we’ve seen. This bar is in a carpeted room but the homeowners don’t want carpet beneath the bar stools or bar area – carpet that can stain easily and be easy to clean. Instead, they created an easy-to-clean “rug” with tile beneath the bar. The tones of the two different floors work well together and is much easier to maintain.
