Where Ceramic Tile Meets Hardwood

If some average schmo was gonna take up the linoleum and carpet to be replaced with 3/4" hardwood and 12"x12" ceramic tile, what size/type of underlay would he use for the tile to match the height of the hardwood well enough to keep the lady of the house from mentioning it frequently?

TIA.

PM Fax if repost.

He would use 1/4" underlayment. I like hardibacker but there are 3 or 4 other brands that work well too.

It's clearly a code word for a jihadist plot. We need to contact homeland security.

For function and aesthetics, the best way to install is to build the the wood right up against the tile. Having a small border with a nice design where the tile transitions to wood is a big bonus.

But, if you want to be like the normal Joe, leave a 1/2" to 3/4" gap between the tile and wood and fill in with a T-Molding.

No laughing at me Phil as I am NOT a contractor. But I did pull up some carpet in the house I sold in KS to find hard wood underneath. Tile was layed on the floor some years ago and I didn't want to clean up the mess and risk a F***ed up floor underneath so I did what I had to to make it presentable for sale.

Results are as follows:

So, is there anything that goes between the subfloor and hardibacker? Does he use regular thinset on top for the tile?

Mike Holmes always used the orange mat under tile. (can't remember the name) but he got it from HomeDepot.

you don't have to use Hardi brand, but you need a tile underlayment, NOT a wood underlayment like luan.

I've seen that used well and I've seen it used badly. I'm a little scared of it, especially for n00bs.
