Wood floor to stone floor transition

14 years ago

Our house is a new build, not old, but we are pretending it's a 200 year old Caribbean house that we are restoring. We will have a wood floor in the kitchen and greatroom that is the "original" part of the house. Our foyer can be entered from the greatroom through a 5' wide doorway with louvered French doors. The wall is 12" thick between these two areas. We are pretending that the foyer was originally an outside porch (but there is no step down---both floors are on the same level) and will have a stone floor and that the louvered doors were the original doors to the outside. What do you think would be appropriate for a threshold for this doorway? I was thinking we should use the same wood as the wood floor in the greatroom but have a special piece made that is as wide as the doorway instead of having the random width boards just flow into the threshold. Hope this makes sense and would appreciate any ideas.
