Why Transition Strips Are So ImportantWhen you install carpet tiles in a room, you’ll often raise the height of the floor. Depending on the height of your carpet tiles, the different heights between the carpet and the adjoining floor can be significant.
For example, if you have tile in a bathroom but carpet in the adjoining room, that design will create a lip in the doorway. Installing a threshold ramp can help to smooth out that transition.
These ramps or strips serve multiple important purposes. They’re an essential precaution in helping to prevent tripping as people walk onto and off of the carpet, and they may help to avoid painful stubbed toes.
The ramps also create a smoother surface that allows people who are using wheelchairs or walkers. This smoother transition can help to keep your rooms and spaces accessible.
If you’re installing flooring in an area where people will be using rolled carts, then these transition pieces make it much easier to get carts onto and off of the flooring.
Top Carpet to Tile Transition StripsAt Greatmats, we carry several carpet to tile transition strips suitable for multiple applications. You can order these strips with your carpet tiles, so you have everything needed for a complete installation.

You can dry lay the tiles on a hard, flat surface, like concrete or tile. There’s no need for adhesive, and the tiles’ interlocking edges create a secure, continuous surface that won’t pull apart during use.
Once installed, the tiles offer anti-fatigue and insulative properties that are similar to what you would enjoy from traditional carpet. They can be vacuumed clean for easy maintenance.
These tiles are available in a variety of designer color options, making them a versatile option suitable for many uses and environment.
Alternative Carpet Tile Products to ConsiderAs previously mentioned, if you want to avoid the use of transition strips, we carry flooring products that don’t require those additional strips.
If you perform a wall-to-wall installation with the tiles, you won’t need to worry about their exterior borders, too. You can cut the tiles to fit right up against your wall, and can eliminate the need to use transition strips.
