I just retiled my bathroom floor with ceramic tiles. I have carpet in the
hallway leading to the bathroom. What is the recommended way to secure the
carpet to the tile? The folks who installed the carpet said they glued down
one of the other transitions.
We just finished the same project. Part of our transition was incorporated
into the laying of the tile - it's called a Schluter bar (not sure of
spelling) and part of it lays in the mortar under the tile. Makes a nice
transition between end of tile and the carpet. Then a flooring man told us
to get a piece of carpet tack strip and attach it to the floor under the
edge of the carpet about 1/2 to 3/8 inch from the edge of the tile. Pull
the carpet over it to secure it, then "roll" then edge of the carpet in the
space between the tack strip and the Schluter bar.
But, it's a good idea to install it before the tiling is finished as one
edge goes under the tile. Schluter does have some that can be placed
under the carpet but I don't prefer them.
