When laminate flooring is used in conjunction with other types of flooring, a transition strip is needed to cover the expansion joint between the two surfaces. Several types of transitions are available to accommodate different flooring applications. Although they generally install the same, you must choose a transition that is suited for your application needs.

For example, the Brazilian cherry works great in the living room, but you must transition to porcelain in the bathroom due to moisture issues.
