Laminate Threshold Issue With Non-Standard Threshold

Postby Sloces » Mon Oct 22, 2018 8:48 am

Hi all,

My first try at laying laminate flooring (in the dining room) and just doing my research and prep before attacking the task.
I'm happy about how to approach most of it, but was hoping for some advice on how i should approach my thresholds, as they are not standard.

We have sliding doors from the dining room into both the kitchen and lounge.
There is a wooden threshold that joins both rooms, that the runners of the doors are in.
When i leave the expansion gap, I obviously can't use standard trim to cover the gap and wondering what options i have??

Only thing i can think of is cutting and removing the wooden threshold apart from the bit the runner guides are in, and using a normal threshold?

(Bad) Photos attached to try and show what i mean.

Thanks in advanced
