Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Door Thresholds

Whether you have smooth floors in your home or it’s carpeted throughout, you’ll benefit from the right door thresholds. It may not be the most visible or well-known aspect of interior design, but knowing your stuff about door thresholds can pay dividends – so let’s find out more.

What is a door threshold?

Okay, first things first: what exactly is a door threshold? Well, depending on how your flooring is covered, you’re bound to have areas where two different floor coverings meet at a doorway. Even when the covering is the same, this meeting point can still be somewhat unsightly. What a door threshold does is cover the point at which floor coverings meet, replacing any ragged edges with attractively finished materials with a premium look. Door thresholds come in a wide range of varieties, and can be used to join almost any two floor coverings you can imagine.

What are door thresholds used for?

The primary role of a door threshold is to connect two floor coverings between rooms, whether they be the same or different. Door thresholds can be used to connect carpet with carpet, smooth wooden floors with vinyl floors, or any other combo you can imagine. The main aim is to neaten the transition between rooms and eliminate any unsightly edges to carpeting or hard flooring. Even better, because door thresholds are available in so many different materials and designs, they can actually be something of a focal point in and of themselves.
