Flooring Question

Fitting engineered wood next to corian solid surface

We have a breakfast bar with a vertical support built from Corian. We are about to have an engineered oak floor fitted. What can we use as beading against the Corian surface?

Silicone looks ok but not that great to be honest and don't fit it tight, please leave a decent expansion gap.

What I would use is a threshold bar. End profile or something where it looks smart, colour matching most of the time and you can leave a good expansion gap.

Hope this helps

There is no wat of beading around it I would cut the wood flooring to fit as tight as possible (approx 1/8" gap) and use a matching silicone to fill the gap.
