First time here, thought I'd ask the pros.

I'm planning on installing laminate flooring in a couple different parts of the house. Is it possible to have a curved transition between the flooring and the carpet?

The best example I could give would be to imagine a doorwall. I want to use laminate as an "threshold", running the full width of the doorwall. You walk across it before you get to the carpet.

But instead of a square entryway, I'd like to have the laminate curve and butt the carpet up against that curve.

Think of a half-moon type of design.

I'm pretty sure I can create a template to do the cut, but I can't find anyone who can tell me what I need to make a smooth transition from the flooring to the carpet.

Is there anyone out there who makes curved or flexible molding?

Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

You could buy snap in molding with the plastic track. You could also just turn the carpet with z-bar and not even use a transition piece.

Hard to butt with a floating floor, which I am assuming is being used here? I believe Johnsonsite has some of that flexible rubbery stuff that may work. For an engineered or solid hardwood floor a custom piece(s) would have to be made if a transition is desired.
