Tile to Stained Concrete Transition

We just put in stained concrete in our dining room and now we have a transition into the living room which is tile. That means we have tile about 1/2 inch higher than the stained concrete. I think I found some nice transitions which I found in the laminate wood section of Home depot, but I am wondering how to adhere them. Do I drill into the concrete? Can I glue them down? If I glue, what do I use? If I drill, then I nail/screw holes in my nice oak transition.
Any suggestions?
Thanx, Chris

Any two part epoxy will work just fine. You don't have to worry about a perfect fit since the adhesive will fill voids very well. Might be a good idea to lay down some blue masking tape to keep the resin off the concrete. HTH

Excellent advice, two part epoxy is what I originally bought, so I was on the right track. Good advice about taping off, I will tape off both the tile and concrete sides.

I have another question, as part of this same project, I also now have a section of the stained concrete floor which meets the carpet in my master bedroom. The carpet is a little higher than the stained concrete and the transition is just in the doorway. What should I use to move from the stained concrete to the carpet in the doorway?
Thanx, Chris
