Whether you have chosen the same floor for the whole house or if you have decided to combine two different floors, transitions can be your best ally to give an original touch to your house’s flooring.
Tile floor transitions between different porcelain tiles are a very useful tool for decorating.
In this article, we want to inspire you. See how many ways you can make floor transition ideas work for you.
Floor transitions as decoration
Floor transitions not only serve to make the change between clay-look porcelain tiles and stone-look tiles more aesthetic. The combination of two different floors can be the perfect reason to decorate the flooring.
Get inspired by the following ideas to make transitions between different floors or even with the same flooring.
Transitions between different floors
When two different floors have to be combined, for example in cases where it is necessary to combine flooring and porcelain stoneware, transitions are a way of softening the impact of the change in flooring.
Transitions have always been straight. However, creative transitions between patterned and smooth flooring are a trend today, where one floor and the other interpenetrate to the point that you do not know where one begins and the other ends.
When the bathroom porcelain has a different height than the rest of the house, you can install a metal transition plate. You can also choose a more aesthetic option, such as incorporating a slat from one of the two floors to bridge the gap.
Another less common, less accessible, but very aesthetic way to make the transition is to make it very obvious. We can achieve this by incorporating a small step between both floorings.
Lastly, you have the option of simply transitioning, as long as both floors are level. The best way to achieve this is by choosing two porcelain tiles with the same thickness.
Transitions between the same floor
If you have chosen the same floor for the whole house but you want to give it a different touch depending on the room in which it is located, this is for you. We will look at ways you can make transitions when the floor is the same.
For example, if it is wood-look porcelain, the veins can be the perfect way to transition from one room to another while maintaining harmony. You can lay the floor in one direction in a room, and turn it upside down in another room, going in another direction.
Another way to separate the same flooring is by placing a line of porcelain of another type as a division. For example, in two areas with cement flooring, you can incorporate a line of hydraulic porcelain as a means of separation.

Floor transitions to separate spaces
Transitions are very appropriate to separate different environments in open-plan spaces.
For example, they are ideal when you want to make the limits of an area clear, such as the hall when it is next to the living room-dining room.
Transition from the kitchen floor to the living room
Floors for kitchens open to the living room can be different from the rest of the space to clearly differentiate both environments. These ideas can help you find the ideal transition between the kitchen and the living room.
If you are a lover of hexagonal tiles and have installed them in the kitchen, while the living room imitates wood, there are very striking ways to make the transition. One way is to avoid straight cuts between one environment and the other, embedding one type of floor inside the other so that the transition is original and daring.
If the porcelain tiling in the kitchen is very similar to that in the living room, one way to create the transition and produce contrast is to incorporate a third type of flooring. As a border, it surrounds the kitchen and separates both environments. In this case, opt for porcelain flooring that provides contrast without breaking the esthetics.
When designing the kitchen-living room, you may have fallen in love with a particular type of flooring. In that case, you can separate both environments by choosing two colors of the same porcelain tile. For example, beige flooring for the living room and white porcelain for the kitchen.
We hope that these ideas will inspire you when choosing the transitions between the different floors and rooms in your home.
