Transition between rooms

Hello. New to these forums and looking forward to the advice given.

I am in the processing of laying laminate flooring throughout the first floor of my home. I am laying a flooring that comes in 3 different widths. I started in the front room of the house and progressed towards the back. from the front room, you can either go down a hall into the kitchen or through an archway into the dining room. The dining room then connects to the kitchen.

At the point where the hallway/archway split, i was very careful to lay the exact same width boards so that when the flooring met back up in the kitching/dining room doorway, everything would match. I am now to that point and my dining room is short by a 1/2". Any suggestions or recommendations on how to accomodate this situation?

I was thinking of doing a transition strip between the rooms, but was hoping to avoid that so it was a solid flow between all the rooms. I also thought about taking one of the bigger pieces and cutting it down to different widths and tehn gluing, but will lose the beveled edgeName:  Capture.jpg

Any thoughts?

I greatly appreciate any feedback. I will post a picture later tonight.

Here is the style flooring we are installing. Hopefully the picture posts properly.

Welcome to the forums! Most room transitions will require a threshold transition piece. One thing to try is to physically move the entire floor in the right hand room toward the door. It may not work, but worth a try. With good clean tennis type shoes on, run toward the door and stop to try and force the entire floor to the opening. If that fails, you will be relegated to removing flooring and installing a transition.

thanks for the response. The situation is the floor in the room on the right is connected to the floor in the front room, which is then connected to the floor in the hall which is connected to the kitchen (the room on the left in the picture. It is one big circle

How big of an issue will people find with teh floor having a transition strip and being able to visibly see that the planks don't line up 100%
