Finishing carpet edge
We just put laminate in our home office. At the doorway, the laminate meets carpet from the hall. Previously, the office also was carpeted, and the two carpets (different types) met at a seam at the door.
What is the proper way to finish the edge of the remaining carpet to make it look nice and stay that way? I have a moulding piece (one of those Pergo 4-in-1 things) to go on the edge of the laminate, but it is designed to butt up against a finished carpet edge. What do I need to do to get that type of edge on the existing carpet?
I saw metal gripper strips at Home Depot, but it seems like a 1/2" metal strip between the laminate and carpet would be ugly. We have another spot in our house where the carpet comes right up against a wood floor, and it's a very nice tight transition. But I can't tell how they did it (and I'm not about to rip it up to find out!).
