Wood Moulding Types
Let’s take a look at different floor wood moulding types that we offer at Stone & Tile to give you a better idea of available options and how each can be used in your design.
Threshold molding or baby threshold is used in doorways to finish the edge where the flooring ends. You can also install thresholds when you are joining one surface to another of a different height to create a smooth transition.
Flush stair nose molding is used on steps, landings, and the perimeter of elevated floors to protect edges. Wood flush stair nose profiles create a smooth, finished look by connecting at the same level as the flooring.
Quarter round molding is installed to cover seams and expansion spaces where engineered wood or laminate meets baseboards. You can also use wood quarter round molding at the base of steps and around cabinets. Quarter round moldings can be color-matched to your flooring for a uniform look.
Wood reducer molding is sloped on one side to smoothly transition between floors of different heights, for example, engineered wood flooring and carpet, vinyl, or tile. The flush reducer can seamlessly transition your floors from one level to the next, reducing tripping hazards.
T-molding is used to create a transition between different flooring types of the same height or between wood floors in adjacent rooms to create a trip-free transition that is visually appealing. Wood T-molding is typically installed in doorways without thresholds and can also be used to join hardwood floors in large areas and cover expansion/contraction joints.
Instaform profile features a unique design. It is multifunctional and can be used to create five different applications. It’s a great option if you are a DIY person.
