4 Ways And 41 Examples To Ease The Floor Transition
Open floor plans are very popular today, all the rooms mixed in one is a regular thing. You can accentuate your areas using various space dividers, accents and floor covers. Tiles in the kitchen, wood in the living room, concrete in the entryway – how to make a transition between them in a cool way? Here are some ideas that may help you.
Make The Transition Irregular
Design your floor so the switch happens in a shaped, curved or diagonal line instead of something straight and right-angled. Cut your wooden floors to match edge of the tile, whether it’s square, hexagonal or any other else, and you’ll get a stylish and eye-catchy transition that will accentuate different zones in your home.

Make An Accent Border Between The Floors
An accent thin border will be a cool idea for any space, it will help to mix two different types of floors perfectly. The border line may be made in the same material as one of the floors but more often it’s made using some accent tiles, bold or mosaic ones.

Split The Line With Furniture
Interrupt the space where the two floor treatments meet by placing a feature or a piece of furniture right on top of it. A kitchen island, chairs, a sofa, a table or any other furniture can bridge the gap between the kitchen tile and the hardwoods in the rest of the open floor plan.

Add A Buffer Zone
If you’d rather two floors not meet at all–like in the case of different shades of hardwood floors–consider a buffer zone of accent tile in-between. The wood looks like it’s all the same color, but you can imagine how the tile buffer here would ease a transition between floors that clash.
