Gap between laminate and tile floors

Hi All

I am tiling the whole kitchen floor and laminating the hall directly outside. There is no door just an arch. I am thinking of putting in a T threshold, hopefully in chrome if I can locate. But, what gap do I leave initially between the tiled floor and the laminate ?

As the laminate runs the length of the hall rather than across it will be crossing the door perpendicular to the kitchen so I presume I finish the laminate at the doorway wall (minus the oblig 5mm wall space) and the tiling after the gap.


Thanks in advance

Totally depends on the profile you purchase, it will have a particular type of fitting and it is this fitting that will dictate where you need to finish the floor to allow expansion on the laminate side.
