Wood to Carpet Curved Transition


Hi,

I have this curved joint in a flooring project I'm finishing. I'm not sure what to do with it; it's not attached yet just trimmed to fit. A curved T molding would be the obvious solution, but it would be a custom piece and I also like the flush look. Is there a way to permanently attach the carpet as it now sits? The contractor flooring forum had a post mentioning a technique using a shim strip and final tuck under for the carpet, perhaps with glue or staples for reinforcement.

What do you think? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

A Schluter strip can be snipped to follow that curve.

Can this be done on concrete? I"m using floating, click lock vinyl planks that call for a 1/8" expansion gap. The planks are a little less than 3/16" thick. Would I just butt the planks against the carpet? Does the carpet or vinyl planks need to be done first?

I would do the planks first.

My planks are floating, no adhesive to each other and not glued to the floor. Will the rolled carpet hold the ends of the planks down?

No. You will need a transition strip. The edge of the planks go under it, leaving a gap underneath. Carpet goes under the other edge.

Hmmm.... Can I get a flexible strip or do I need to run straight lines?

The picture in the original post, is shown without a strip. Is that floor probably fastened to the subfloor?

I would hope it is fastened, otherwise they will have problems.
