Hardwood floor transition

I'm installing a hardwood floor and wondering where to end the floor to transition into a room which will have tile. The two rooms will be separated by a 36" bi-fold door. Should it be in the middle of the threshold separating the two rooms? Or on a particular side of the threshold?

Since no one has responded yet...

I would it needs to be in the middle so when you close the bi-fold you won't see the tile on the wood side when you're standing there and vice versa (you won't see the wood when you're standing in the tile room).

How do I install a hardwood floor transition strip? Construction adhesive? Brad Nails? Do I need to leave some room for the wood floor to expand/contract under the end of the transition strip?

i would leave a some room for the floor to move. i glued my wood transition down.


it took about 7 days for the glue to dry enough that i could take the weights off.

you can nail/screw it down if you want. i didn't want any fasteners in mine.
