Lino / Laminate threshold

New construction. Have a linoleum to laminate flooring threshold required. Both are laid on top of wood and are at equal (or very close) heights. Just wondering what the correct order is to lay these floors and what type of threshold is required?

Thanks in advance!

I find it difficult to believe linoleum and laminate are the same height. Linoleum is usually about 1/8" thick while laminate is roughly 7/16 or so. You will need a mirrored threshold if they are the same height, or an offset if not. You will need to leave about 3/4" gap between the two so you can install a keeper plate so the threshold can snap into it. See the pictures below. The one in the middle if they are the same height, and there are graduations of offset to accommodate lower floor covering.

I am installing on top of dricore. Laminate flooring is 1/2 inch thick, plywood under lino is 3/8" - so should be very close to same height!

If it's 1/2" thick that sounds more like engineered flooring not laminate.

Will be screwing down the 3/8" plywood to the top of the dricore panels before I lay some glueless lino. Will be using small #6 screws - do I need to fill in the screw holes? And if so, can I use just plain wood filler?
