Open floor plans are very popular today, all the rooms mixed in one is a regular thing. You can accentuate your areas using various space dividers, accents and floor covers. Tiles in the kitchen, wood in the living room, concrete in the entryway… but how to make a transition between them in a cool way? Here are some new desing ideas that may help you.

Traditionally, flooring treatments have been separated by “transition strips”—narrow boards that neatly cut off wood or carpeted sections of a room—but now, homeowners and designers are doing away with the defined separation in favor of something far more interesting.

Transitional flooring, also known as tile transitioning, is a new design trend that features flushed tile and hardwood in the same room. The treatment does away with segmented spaces and instead allows the two flooring materials to meet and even mingle! No hard and fast flooring rules here!

Design your floor so the switch happens in a shaped, curved or diagonal line instead of something straight and right-angled. Cut your wooden floors to match edge of the tile, whether it’s square, hexagonal or any other else, and you’ll get a stylish and eye-catchy transition that will accentuate different zones in your home.
