I completely redid my flooing in my dining room and hallway, using ceramic tile. It turned out great, however, it is almost 5/8 of an inch higher than the flooring in the adjoining rooms. (You step down a bit when entering the bedrooms off of the hallway). I don't want to redo the flooring in the bedrooms (i.e. adding a subfloor). Any ideas as to what I can to to ease the transition from the hallway to these rooms? Do they make transition strips with a angled grade to them? Has anyone had this problem before? Thanks in advance!

Stumped in GB.

local wood shop should be able to whip you something out. we have made plenty of these for different height floors. one threshold could cost around 35 dollars. if making more than 1 at the same time, price could go down per piece. if you need my help, let me know. we can send some out

most big box hardware diy stores sell pre-made doorway thresholds and sills that are angled. SImply cut to fit.

you can get any wood millwork shop to make one to your custom specs too.

you can also make on out of raw oak lumber too.


There are two ways to do any job.

The right way and the wrong way.

Do it right everytime.

If you need a floor transition anywhere from a 1/4" to 1", take a look at They seem to have the solution. I have used Carpet Shims and they work great.
