how to work out threshold/transition between laminate/tile


So I am tiling my bathroom. Tire up existing tile and there is a slight difference in height between floor in bathroom and hall. Tearing up subfloor isn't an option since tub and toilet flange are already set. How should I have the substrate at the door threshold and where should my transition be?

I am attaching a picture. Plan to set hardiebacker and tile,with porcelain.

Typically the transition is under the door when closed---this way you do not see a line of different color when the door is closed.

You have no real choice as the hall floor is existing---so I suggest you consider a wood transition piece ---flush to the tile if possible---what had you planned to use?

The best I could think was to use this:

If you have a table saw---you could make one that is ideal for the situation---the selection of wood transitions at the stores is very limited---
