FlooringInc.com offers a wide variety of trim and molding pieces from many big name brands. Shop by transition type, material, color, price, or brand. There are so many transition category types to choose from, so below we break down what each is and where it is commonly used.
Quarter round molding adds the finishing touch to wood, vinyl, or ceramic tile floors. Quarter rounds are designed to be installed right where the floor and wall come together. They can also be used in applications where flooring butts up against cabinets to ‘frame’ and complete the look. It’s unique ¼ sphere design helps to hide expansion perimeter gaps that surround most flooring.
Named for it’s shape, a T-Molding is designed to fill up the space or gap between floors and provide a smooth transition between surfaces. T-molding is used for flooring surfaces of the same height and is installed between rooms and even in doorways, creating a seamless appearance.
Flooring reducers come in many different shapes and sizes, but all are designed to give a smooth transition between floors of differing heights. When one flooring surface is a taller height than the other, it is common to install a reducer so that you don’t have a tripping hazard on your hands, or should we say feet. Everyone hates a stubbed toe!
Have you ever noticed when walking up the stairs that you typically only step on the front portion of each step? This part of the stairs gets a heavy beating and needs a strong body guard to cover the part where the vertical and horizontal surfaces come together. This superhero / bodyguard is known as a stairnose. The stair nose molding takes the beating and saves the stairs themselves.
Commonly found in commercial applications such as restaurant flooring, bathroom flooring, and kitchens, bullnose trim is used as a transition for where tile flooring meets the walls. Bullnose can accentuate a space and offer a slim, smooth transition between surfaces.
Commonly referred to as an end cap, threshold, carpet reducer, or square nose, end caps are used to transition hard surfaces to carpet in areas in front of sliding doors and exterior doorways where expansion space is needed. End caps can be used to finish off exposed edges around hard flooring surfaces or as a seamless transition piece to higher flooring surfaces.
Cove base is installed to cover expansion gap areas where the flooring and wall meet. Covebasing is popular in commercial applications and comes in many material types. While there are many types available on the market, FlooringInc.com currently only offers ceramic and porcelain cove base.
Cove base corners are designed to complete the cove base decoration of your new ceramic or porcelain floor. The ‘corner’ is just that - it goes into or onto the corner between adjacent cove base pieces to hide the corner portion of the wall, providing a durable tile finish.
