Question

carpet tile doorway type question..


Hey gang.. I need to remove carpet from the bathroom (dont ask why ).. I plan to replace with tile. Carpet will remain in the hallway and I am unsure where the tile should terminate at the doorway. Any suggestions would help..

Thanks,
Jerid

i'd try to use an aluminum (or other) trim piece under the door to cover the connection so it's not seen from either side.

ALL carpet, tile or any other type of flooring should end in the middle of the doorway. That means that from inside the room you cannot see what is on the other side and same for hall or other room. I laid floors for 8 years so I do know what I am talking about.

Cheers

Tile goes under the door jamb - carpet does not. How is it recommended to handle this when carpet is on one side and tile on the other?

thx!

Well, as I understand it the tile and carpet should join directly under the door.

A marble threshold the is normally set in the middle of the doorway. The tile butts to it on one side, the carpet on the other........

vsheetz -

Best to undercut the doorjamb and tuck the tile under.

You'll probably have to peel the carpet back and undercut the whole casing as it's difficult to just undercut part of it.

The carpet should tuck back just fine.

Tuck the carpet to the tile to finish it off.

I usually start laying bathrooms with a whole tile centered in the doorway; the "start at the center" rule be damned.
