How do you lay laminate floor so it butts up against tile?

I need to put laminate floor down next to tile floor.

You will never make the laminate butt against the tile on its own. You will need to use a transition between the different floor types.

You will not be able to get them to but up exactly to one another with a clean finish. Laminate is not designed to be installed in such a way, you are going to need a threshold which will go between the tile and laminate; which your local flooring provider can help you with.

This is easily done by putting a strip overlapping the two floor styles. This can be a wood or metal strip. This will blend the two together. This will hide any imperfection.

Butt up the laminate floor to the tile floor in the threshold of a doorway. Leave a gap between the two floors, nail or screw a transition strip between them.

You get the laminate within 0.5 of an inch or so of the tile flooring and then use a T-shaped transition threshold to bridge the gap. The bottom of the T goes into the space, the arms of the T go over the laminate and tiles.
