Tile to Hardwood Floor Transition

Hey all, I'd like to transition from Tile to Hardwood, both would be 3/4" high. I was wondering if anyone has done this and has some advice on how to do it? ie, do I leave a gap between the row of tiles and the hardwood and put grout in between? I was worried the grout would damage the wood.

Thanks,
Shay

That's done all the time, Shay, but using caulk, not grout. If you were to grout, seasonal expansion and contraction of the hardwood would cause the grout to crumble and maybe even break the tile. Your grout supplier can provide a color matched caulk.

Hi Shay. You can get a caulk that matches the grout for that joint. Many times the joint at the base is caulked too.

If you are talking about height difference, we nned to know if you are going over concrete slab or wood subfloor.
