Trim for a sunken living room


I'm trying to come up with a way to trim my step down in a sunken living room. None of the trim in the adjacent hallway or in the sunken living room has been installed yet. I've just placed it there for reference of the types of trim that I am going to be using.

I am having trouble deciding what to use on the sides of the tile that comes down into the living room. The living room has laminate flooring and I will use a piece of matching quarter round for where the tile meets the laminate flooring (as seen in the picture)

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Trim for a sunken living room

How far out does the tile protrude past the wall? If it is a 7/16"-5/8" (these are common thicknesses for base) the easiest thing to do is run the trim the same way the old trim was run.
