The past few months we have been tackling a big project. We finally started work on updating our living room. We moved into our current house back in 2007. We did not have extra budget left to make any big changes to our living room back then. We put a coat of white paint on all the walls and that was the extent of our redecorating efforts. In 2012 we removed the wood paneling and got all the walls replastered. In these past years of living in our space, we started to see our taste in home decor change from dark woods to a more clean and light pallet with a Scandinavian feel.
We wanted to bring our living room in line with the way we wanted to use the space and our changing taste in design. The first thing we wanted to be rid of was our old pine floors. These floors were the bane of my existence. They were not laid very well and they were this orange colour that made taking pictures in our living room a nightmare. So bye bye floors see you never again. The other major thing that needed to go was our fireplace. We didn’t use it much so it was taking up prime real-estate in the space.
So out went the fireplace and the floor. We choose to go with laminate flooring. This was the most budget friendly way to go for us at this time. Beeing in the remodel mode I was pinning flooring inspiration on my Pinterest board a lot. This is when I came across a couple of great projects using a unique way of transitioning between two different floor treatments.
I wanted to share it with you and ask, do you love it or would you leave it? Let’s see a few awesome examples and I will tell you which way I’m leaning on this.
These 10 must see floor transitions will definitely inspire you to try them out. Transitioning from tile to wood, two different types of tiles or concrete to wood, tile hardwood or laminate flooring? You will get inspiration for your next project I promise.

Ok, granted this style of transitioning floor treatments will probably work best in an open planned space. But I think it would work for smaller spaces as well. Which of these 10 must see floor transitions is your favorite?
