Tile Flooring

We are installing tile flooring in our kitchen and we are not sure where to break the flooring leading into the other rooms. We have 5 doors in this room, 3 have fluted jams and 2 have doors. one room goes into tile, one goes into carpet, one goes into hardwood, and the other 2 is vinyl flooring. Any help you can give us will be greatly appreciated.

Typically openings with doors the transition splits under the center of the door, typically at 11/16".

Openings that are only cased with no door splits at the center of the jamb.

If you are meeting old flooring that is to remain in place then you have no choice but to meet the old flooring where it lies.

Exactly what Bud said, I'll only add to leave an expansion space between tile-to-tile and tile-to hardwood. Caulk may work at tile-to-tile, you may need a "T" molding to cover the gap at tile-to-wood.

Are you OK with all the other details about how the floor is preped and which materials to use?

Tile flooring

Thank you Bud & Jaz for the information. That is how my husband thought you did it but we just wanted to make sure. Other than that I think we are ready to go, we are doing the SnapTile so we don't have to do all the normal prep work.
