Tile to Carpeted Step transition


I have a bathroom that is already tiled and connects to a step (down) that will be carpeted. What should I use to transition? I've looked at the Schluter products but they all seem to need to be installed under the tile. Suggestions?

Are you wanting to install carpet on a stair-riser adjacent to tile?

How about a picture?

Tile to Carpeted Step transition


If the tile is flush with the riser-face a small transition can be made of wood. This transition is attached to the face of the riser at the top just below the tiles bottom edge. This transition can be any size you desire but typically would be 3/8' X 3/4" X 'width of the riser'.

This provides a 3/8" lip to tuck the carpet to/under.

The transition would be stained (maybe) to suit the surrounding color scheme.
