What kind of transition strip or threshold is recommended going from tile to carpet?

Transition strip and threshold are 2 different things. Is 1 of the finished floors higher then the other, or are they @ the same elevation? Are both floors currently installed? Post a picture if you don't mind

We use a product by Schluter, a metal transition strip that is thin but allows the carpet to tuck tight. You can also roll the carpet edge at the tile, but depending on the carpet this can sometimes result in a hump from the roll. I prefer the transition strip.

Riddle, are these transition slips curved or can they also be flat? Thanks, trying to learn what is available out there in the real world (I'm in another country and it helps sometimes to know that there ARE solutions when you are being emphatically told there are not!)
