Laminate Floor in Sunken Room w/ Tile on Edge

I have a 20x15 sunken room I want to replace the carpet with laminate floor. The floor plan is very open and one 20 ft side steps up directly into the kitchen which is tile up to the step edge. Another side steps up to the foyer with is also tile to the edge. What is the proper way to install laminate up the sides of the sunken area (step is about 6 inches). Stairnose would leave a gap down to the tile. I also thought about maybe baseboard or maybe even tile and just the laminate on the bottom floor.

I've laid laminate before at my old house, but this sunken room situation is new to me and I'd appreciate any advise.

I'd match the base board if none were under/behind the riser of the stepup and paint any exposed drywall. If the nosing does not meet the drywall or if a space of no drywall, a piece of base shoe or even door stop can be run below bullnosing to cover any gap.
