Hardwood-Carpet: header board or threshold?

I am planning a new hardwood install that will adjoin to a new carpet install in a bedroom.

Should I just rip a header board and break its edge, or use a transition piece?

The hardwood will be just a landing and open hall at the top of the stairs, so the area isn't particularly large. One doorway will be perpendicular to the boards, another parallel.

I think it would look better without a transition. However, expansion would be better accommodated with a transition. It might also eliminate running a tack strip across a doorway (would it? I dunno).
