Curved tile to carpet transition


I'd like to install tile in a room that will be mostly carpeted. The tiled portion would be in front of french doors and along a wall just next to and perpendicular to the doors along which a coat rack and bench will be positioned (mud room corner, if you will). I'd prefer the shape of the tiled area to be more curved than hard 90 degree angles - attached a rough sketch of what I'm trying (poorly) to describe. My question is - do I need to find a "curveable" edger to between the tile and carpet (and would that be installed before tile?) or can I put tile in and have carpet installed butted up against the curving tile border? Carpet would be installed by pros, tile by moi.

If you're on concrete, professional carpet installers should have no problem tucking the carpet directly to the tile.

In my own opinion, tucking the carpet to the tile looks best.

Use small pieces of tack strips to make the curve and tuck the carpet.

Agreed. If you don't like the look afterwards...consider trac n cap

I agree with Bob, I have been istalling carpet for 21 years and the carpet is always tucked in against the tile edge with tackless in front of the tiles. cheers Dan
