Hi,We added 12 by 14 ft addition to the back of our house. There is a difference in floor height between the addition and floor in the living room approx. 2.5 inches. Both rooms have a hardwood floor. I need help to figure out what to do — go with the step or reducer. Is the step of that height be safe? I would appreciate any advice.
Thanks, HelenBanjoSmythParticipant@banjosmythJoin Date: 2007Post Count: 44
Is there a doorway between the rooms?
Or have you knocked out a wall and there is a 2.5 inch drop for the whole 12ft?
I think a really nice reducer would probably be the best bet (sometimes they can look a bit tacky – but if done well they are great)
There is nothing wrong with a little step butl it may become a bit of a trip hazard?

Thank you for answer. Yes, we knocked out the wall. Opening is 6 feet long. I am really upset about this floor discrepancy, but it is already exist. I just want to find the best solution that fit safety requirements and look good aesthetically.
