Tiles are laid on the leg with the mortar so that the surface is flush with the top of the profile, while carpet flooring is spread to butt up against the vertical section of the profile. The advantage of this type of transition from tile to carpet is that it is less visible compared to other options.
Carpet can easily be cut and positioned easily, or at least, it can be moved more more easily than tile, especially after the tile has been set into place. After the tile is installed, put in a tack strip 1/4 to 3/8 inches from the edge of the tile. The next step should be to cut at the direct edge of the tile.
