Carpet to hardwood floor threshold

I am renovating a bedroom and have a flooring transiion question. There is carpet in the BR and in the adjoining hall, with a seam in the doorway. The BR is gettng new carpet. Sometime in the future (not soon enough to be part of this project, I am going to pull up the hall carpet and replace it with hardwood strip flooring. The BR doorway consists of two bifold doors that I am going to replace with french doors and a hardwood threshold. I was going to do the doors and threshold after the carpet but now I'm thinking that I should do that before the carpet gets installed so that the new carpet can be tucked in against it. But then, what do I do when I put in the flooring? I can just butt the new hardwood against the threshold but that may not look the best.
Any ideas on the best way to handle this? Is there a particular type of threshold I should be using?

I read that a couple times and did not see the problem. Can you do the BR carpet, then the doors, then do the flooring in the hallway ? It sounds like if it's measured out that the phases would come together OK.

this. The HW flooring cannot but against it; it will eventually either buckle or gap. The transition will have a rabbet milled into it so the flooring actually tucks a bit under the threshold.
Alternatively, you can cut a rabbet into the threshold itself.
I'd be inclined to wait until you have the door and threshold to deal with this. There are too many variations in sizes for you to be sure to get it right without having the exact items you installing.
It won't be a big deal to pull a bit of carpet off the tackless, install new tackless against the new threshold, and cut the carpet to fit.
