Just wanted to share my way of doing my own transition to save money. This is between carpet and tile. I bought 1 pcs of wood for 4 dollar, nail it down on the floor, stain it then put grouts on it. It really works..
Tigerwood (ASTRONIUM FRAXINIFOLIUM) is a beautiful exotic Brazilian hardwood which
provides one of the most unique patterns you will ever see. Because of its incredible beauty, tigerwood is highly sought after for both interior and exterior applications. From doors to musical instruments to flooring and decking, tigerwood is a great choice and an excellent alternative for those looking for a light-colored wood but prefer something harder and more exotic than maple or beech.
Tigerwood is one of our favorite choices for a butcher block countertop!
