Because obviously carpet does not belong in the kitchen and I managed to cut it pretty straight and now I need to know what to do at the edge where it meets the floor, I figured I would just put a piece of trim over it but I believe I am missing a step.

When I was house shopping a few years back I looked at a place with shag carpet in the bathroom. People do weird shit.

Carpet to linoleum Metal transition strip found at home depot or Lowe's

Yup, works like a champ. And there are varying sizes and material types.

I'd go with something like this myself. Transition cinch reducer ... they have all kinds where you can make a smooth transition between one height flooring and another. I did this when the carpet in the hall came up where it was fitted and I needed a way to get rid of tripping hazard where the bathroom linoleum met.

I hate carpeting...it is always dirty. It doesn't matter how much we clean it, it is always dirty.

It was quite a surprise to see how much shit was under that carpet, it had been there at least 30 years.

Ewe. I don't want to imagine, only because it was in the kitchen. I know I'm a messy chef, because my teenagers complain about the mess I make them clean up, but I know I'm fairly clean when cooking by comparision.

Yeah, who puts carpet in a kitchen? I have had to rip it out of a bathroom once. WaWhite13 beat me to it, I call it a carpet bar.

The real question here is: what did you find under the carpet?

Roll it under itself and staple it down

So thats why the cut up portion had that done.
