engineered hardwood over ceramic tile?
November 16, 2013
hi everyone! am going to install engineered hardwood in dining room, kitchen and hallway leading to master bedroom. all of that floor area is existing ceramic tile which is in good shape, but the tile is a dimpled design. my installer wants to put the hardwood over the tile, I am uncomfortable with that idea as it will create 2 more higher transitions that I don't want, one into the laundry room and one into the walk in pantry which I will keep as the existing tile. they will have transitions anyways, but without the tile, the transitions wouldn't be as high. what do you think? also, where do I find the metal transition strips, I like the lower profile of them rather than the bulky look of the wood strips? thank you, I hope you can offer suggestions.
