how to separate two different floors in an open floor plan.

In an open floor plan with wood floors, I'd like to have a different floor in the kitchen area, possibly terracotta. How can I divide the floor? What kind of part or line should we make? Thanks so much!

There's a piece of wood that separates the area... And in the kitchen leading to the hall there's an accent tile that separates the one room from the other

Yup.....not sure if there is a special name for it, but like Alison said.....that piece of wood separates it all.

In my home where the tile and wood meet, a piece of the same wood is layed the opposite way where one material meets the other. Very smooth transition - not a little bit of wood as in picture above.

would you please send a pic? That's more where my question goes, how to make it work from a cosmetic point of view.

It's called a "transition". To make it work, from a cosmetic point of view, you will want to match the wood.

yes, thank you. In the picture is relatively easy because there is a natural line. I don't have one. I'm thinking about creating a wide transition zone using a pattern with diamonds where the lines are wood and the fill is tile (terracotta).

Can you show a photo of the area?
