I have hardwood transitioning to a marble border between the kitchen ceramic tile with a hardwood transition. Is there a way to eliminate the transition so it butts against the marble which should have been done originally. Can the existing wood transition be removed than a piece of hardwood be put in perpendicular to the existing floor? The current hardwood and the marble border are level so no problem with levelling

Yes, here are more details.

Option 1 transition strip that acts as a "ramp" from the lower hardwood floor to the higher tile floor.

Option 2 Stone-to-hardwood trim strips: A marble or granite strip that abuts to the tile floor, this strip then adjoins to the lower floor with a hardwood trim piece.

Hi there! Of course a hardwood header can be done so you can eliminate over flooring transitions... most of the customers this days want that and they asking to be done this way. In order to do it now you may face different challenges like modifying ( trimming) baseboards around that spot. Usually the more level the two floors are the better and easier to do it. However, I recommend a professional cause what seams to be easy by the looks may turn in a challenge and waste of time for a non professional cause of luck of tools especially. Take into consideration that this is for sure a main walking area and needs to be done perfect in many ways: level, avoid squeaking and appearance

Yes it can be done ...just make sure your not damaging the marble threshold when removing the transition piece and hardwood.

Hope this helps.
