Threshold between tile and vinyl

We are installing a tile floor in our laundry room and need some sort of threshold between the new tile and the existing vinyl in the kitchen. What type of threshold is recommended?

Threshold between tile and vinyl

You can use a "reducer" transition strip.
Schluter makes them in an assortment of metal finishes and sizes.
The stip is installed underneath the tile and set in thinset.

Here's a picture of a reducer strip. It's between tile and carpet, but the idea is the same. The strip transitions between a higher tile surface and a lower vinyl or carpet floor covering.
