Carpet/laminate flooring


I have a carpet that ends on one side with an "S" curve ( 12 feet) This end abutts with Allure plank flooring for the Kitchen. Is there any kind of flexible edge moulding that is available to blend the two.?

Carpet/laminate flooring


There are rubber transitions available in different colors that can be used for applications such as this, but they are used mainly in commercial buildings. I don't believe they would look good in a residential home.

Is the carpet glued down, or stretched in over pad? If stretched in, the tackstrip can be removed and replaced with flexible "beat-down" metal transitions, also known as carpet gripper. They come mainly in the colors silver and gold. Of course, the carpet will need to be stretched back up to the gripper metal and tucked inside it. Hope this helped.

Also, do not nail the transition directly to the laminate.
