transition between stone tile & laminate wood floor

Hi,
I want to have a smooth transition between stone floor and wood laminate floor. I thought to use a special type of caulk to account for the expansion and contraction of the laminate flooring rather than the T-moulding strip.

Has anyone done this before? I wonder if it's a bad idea and does the wood shrinks and expands too much and I will end up with ragged wood laminate edges.

Is there not a flexible type of caulking?

Use the proper transition piece. Caulk will look cheesy and not professional. If floors are of same height, drop a T-mold into the expansion gap. Height of T-mold is minimal and will not impede traffic. T-mold will give you the look of a professional installation.
