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 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?
