This one has us stumped. Regretfully I don't think we thought this one through.
This the step from the family room into the laundry. We were originally thinking that we were going to use solid oak for the step since another step on adjacent side is leafs to the pub and that floor is going to be solid oak. And the reason for wood was so it would be easier to do the bullnose for the step.
Step is the easy part....but now we don't think wood is going to look good as the top step and transition to the tile. We are thinking that we need to use tile all the way on the top step. But how do we do the bullnose so that it matches the tile?
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
If it were mine I would go with Oak or Birch tread with a wood landing tread with the nose extending out about 1/2 inch past any trim you put around the opening and return the nose back into the wall. If you get the landing tread wide enough you can bevel the back edge and rabbet it to overlay the tile.
