I am laying a wooden laminate floor at a landing with a rectangular area. The shorter side of that area connects to a staircase leading downwards. The staircase itself is covered with a carpet, which I don't want to change at the moment.
I want to lay down the wooden floor panels in parallel to the longer side of the rectangular area, as this would be the same orientation as inside the rooms and would also cause less problems with floor stretching/shrinking over time.
This caused me the question of how make a nice termination of the wooden floor at the beginning of the staircase. So far I found so-called stairnoses I could use to make a nice termination, but then again I struggle of how to connect the stairnose with the floor panels, which have 90-degree different orientation.
The only way so far I can imagine would be to use a T-profile between the stairnose and the laminate floor, which should work but doesn't look that elegant.
Are there any different proposal of how to terminate the wooden floor at the staircase?
Thanks for any ideas.
