carpet transition


Hi all!

I moved into my house not too long ago and am running down my list of repairs. Tile w as installed in one of the bathrooms before I moved in. The installer cut the carpet from the hallway too short, leaving a gap between the tile and edge of the carpet. As a result one of the tiles has been chipped. What can I do to salvage what is left? Thanks for your help!

most easy way I can think of is T-moulding.
May need to trim the carpet back a little more so it will sit flat.
Use 100% clear silicone and glue it down to edge and top of tile. Set something heavy on it while it dries.
You can buy the moulding pre finished for laminate flooring, or unfinished oak and stain the colour you want.

Someone messed up. There was suppost to be a wide threshold or at least a transition strip that sits under the door stop moulding.
Most people use a marble strip with there.
The way it is now your going to be seeing two differant types flooring when the doors closed from one side of the dooor.
Here's some pictures of what it was suppost to look like.

Try track and cap. You should be able to find cap to match and most hardware stores carry it.

Thanks for the ideas! For marble thresholds is the carpet tucked under or does it butt up against the marble? I've decided to go with t-moulding for now, but will eventually like to install marble.
