Hardwod Floor Transition

Name:  IMAG0723.jpg

I have Bruce 3/4" oak gunstock in my second floor hallway. I had carpet in my master bedroom and have removed it. Matching the floor doesn't appear to be a problem

My question is when transitioning to the master bedroom. Do I weave it in or do I use a different Bruce transition molding separating the two rooms. Also my master bedroom floor is at a angle.

What would a pro do?

Thanks.

It appears you will have a height difference, is that right? You may not be able to "weave" them in. One option would be to straighten the run at the doorway and proceed into the room, backsetting the in door pieces to fit, and install a new transition piece at the doorway. Of course it would be a personal preference as far as the angle is concerned.

There shouldn't be a height difference. I still have the padding and carpet tack to pull up.

OK, I see it is a tack strip instead of OSB. I would still turn the wood parallel to the door opening and finish the room that way. If for no other reason but "change". Start parallel on the wall just past the door opening and back fill the pieces to fill the door opening once it is done, using a reversing spline.

How smooth are the angle cuts on the door opening? Sometimes they are less than perfect and a transition strip may still be necessary.
