What/How to transition from 1: higher floor

I have a room that the floor is 1" higher than the connecting room.
The high floor will get new vinyl, the lower floor is getting ne carpet.

Is there some type of ramp or way to not have a trip lip?

There are a variety of risers, joint bars, lip catches and so on so forth that are made to traverse the different thicknesses of flooring.
The best way to determine what to buy is to go looking - at a big box store (Lowes, Home Depot, Ace) they'll likely have them spread throughout the store in different locations: Sold with the hardwood flooring, sold with carpeting, sold with door jambs and insulation, etc.

However, if you're going to be putting in carpeting and want there to be less than 1" to deal with then I suggest you consider putting in another layer of subfloor - or, when you peel up the old kitchen floor - to figure out why it's higher, maybe you can remove some height there


At this present moment in time I am making cabinets for the kitchen - just in case you wanted to know what I'm doing when I'm not around.
