We pondered for months was how to transition from original wood floors to the new 1" higher elevation tile floor. We got creative by using a piece of bevelled baseboard that was long enough (10 ft) to run the length we needed and then ripped it down to the proper width. The wood species are both red oak but the threshold still needs to be finished with a coat of urethane and the floors need to be refinished.
