transition from brick floor to brazilian cherry floor


I need some help here, i've installed brazilian cherry engineered wood(5/16") and have my 2 thresholds from the cherry floors to my 2 bedrooms with carpet but have a question before i finish this job completely, i've got brick floors in all my bathrooms and the height difference from my wood floor to the brick floor is about 1/2" to 9/16", my question is do i use a reducer or a transition piece? If i use a reduce, which butts up to my brick floor, i'll have to use a grinder to grind back the bricks as they were not finished evely going across but that shouldnt be a problem. If anyone can shed a light on what is the correct way of finishing this please let me know.
Thanks
Rockey

a reducer will work fine.
the lip of the reducer goes over the brick, and it slopes down to the wood.
Just like a wood reducer to vinyl, but reverse.

Thanks for the reply but i have another question and please excuse my ignorance. From what i've seen on the web the Reducer, from what i've seen, butts up to the brick/wood and slopes down toward the wooden floor but from what i've seen the transition actually laps over the brick and then slopes down toward the wooden floor?
Isnt this correct?
just trying to make sure which moulding i need to order.
Thanks

an overlap reducer is what you need. A flush reducer would be more difficult to deal with as you need to gring down the brick and the overlap will help cover some up.
