The 3 finishing touches you need to complete your DIY carpeted room

  • Tack Strips.Tack strip installation is one of the most important thngs to remember when you DIY a carpeted room. Tack strips secure the tightly stretched carpet in place, and if done properly, will never come loose for the life of the carpet.
  • Transition Strips.Gold, silver, bronze, colored aluminum transition strips should only be used where the carpet to tile/wood transitions meet, and not where two sections of carpet meet.
  • Rubber Reducer Strips.Rubber reducer strips are generally reserved for commercial carpet to tile/wood transitions. They are a safe and will protect the commercial grade carpeting where it meets the VCT tile floors.

Carpet to Tile Transitions

Carpet to tile transitions are usually done without a metal strip. We stretch the carpet, what we like to call drum taught, fold the carpet under, then fasten the carpet to the tack strips with a carpet staple gun for a beautiful transition. The Carpet Chemist services a lot of senior homes, and many times the carpet can be a half inch higher than the bathroom tile. A flat metal transition strip is used in these instances as it helps for a smooth entry into and out of the powder room, with the assistance of a cane, walker or wheelchair.
