Laminate Flooring


We just bought a house with open floor plan where existing laminate butts against carpet. I want to replace the carpet with laminate that matches the existing laminate. Is it possible to do this without having an obvious place where the existing laminate ended and carpet started. The plan is so open that a transition strip won't work.

Depends, is there a transition strip there now?
Once it's removed did someone rip the laminite to width or is the T or G still there?
Are both subfloors level to each other?

Depends on the overall length. if it is too long an expansion strip must be in there.

Joe is right, If it's not ripped on the side you need then it will work.

I have never heard of needing a transition piece if the room is too long.
