What's a stair railing have to do with flooring?
Laminites not the best choise for a second story.
No good way to end it where the stairs are without a trip hazard.
Also unless you used cork as an underlayment it's going to be a lot louder when walked on, down stairs.

laminate flooring


they make stair nosings for laminte , may be 1/8 to 3/16 or so higher obviously for overlap, which allows for movement. i always glue and nail nosing, dont hit laminate with either, andd then throw a small peice of trim under nosing for added support, we usually use a reducer that matches nosing to help supprt nosing.
