When you have floors that are different heights how do you do the trim

by Bky32228475
Our kitchen floor is slightly higher than the dining room. We used a transition piece to bring the two floors together, but we don’t know what to do with the trim.

    Take a photo of this to a flooring company. They should have several transition pieces that work because they often lay hard material floors next to carpeted areas that require the same type of transition.

    Same here but now that remodeling this is a nightmare... Have to remove all lower cabinets in order to remove the additional flooring To make it level with the dining room which is adjacent to the kitchen

    Fit the trim to the room not the difference height of the floors.

    There are special transition pieces in different shades available wherever they sell flooring. Measure both heights and then shop. You can notch out the trim to fit once you have the transition piece down.

    I once heard/ learned that "if you can't hide a transition, celebrate it." I would suggest that on a floor you would want to celebrate it/ make it a piece of beauty/ obvious so that your eye will notice so it, so that it does not become a trip hazard. Just a thought.

    Cut trim to follow the transition. A few mitre cuts should do.
