Hi there..... in the kitchen we are putting both tile and hardwood floor. We are putting a band of hardwood in the center of the kitchen, but we ran into a problem. the hardwood is a bit thicker than the tile, I was wondering what we can do to fix the difference. I was considering just putting a thick underlayment for the tile.
What do you guys advise?
Also, I am running into a problem with leveling. Part of the kitchen floor is slopping almost 2 1/2 inch difference, so we are going to put a leveler down, but here is the problem..... the slope goes into the laundry room and i really do not want a step between the kitchen and the laundry room, can someone come up with an idea so I don't have a slope? I know it is silly, but I can just imagine me coming in with an armful of grocery bags and tripping and breaking the extra large bottle of salsa... and so on
Somethings very wrong for a floor to be that far out of level.
Is this a slab, crawlspace, basement?
I can not amagine trying to use a leveler to fix that one. I'd be going under the floor to figure out why it's that far off and fix it.
