Tiling entryway - proper transition for this scenario?
I'm just finishing a remodel in which I've tiled a bathroom, laundry room and entryway. The latter joins the bath & laundry with the rest of the house and has three openings, one of which goes to the exterior.
I'm using Del Conca porcelain 6x6 "Canyon" tiles on a diagonal and I'm going to end up with 1.5" triangles at two of the transitions: one transition to a kitchen with a higher laminate floor (fake stone) and one transition to a living room with a laminate wood floor that's level with the tile.
QUESTION #1: Should I tile all the way to the wood / laminate floors, even with the 1.5" triangle tiles being much smaller than the rest?
QUESTION #2: How much gap (if any) should you leave between the different floor types?
QUESTION #3: If I do leave out the 1.5" triangles, should I just get a wider transition strip? The gap would be covered by a 3-inch or 4-inch wide transition. This would cut things a bit cleaner, since it would give the appearance of ending at a half-tile, rather than a small "nub" of a much larger tile.
QUESTION #4: What types of transition options would typically be used in something like this?
