Laminate to carpet transition question


i have done many rooms in laminate before, so doing the job is no problem for me, im just not sure how to make this transition look good.....

i plan on doing my upstairs living room with laminate flooring, there is a staircase leading up to the room that is carpet, i want to keep the carpet on the staircase,

what is the best way to make the transition at the top of the stairs from the carpet to laminate look good?

i have attached a pic

I would put a bullnose edge of wood to match your flooring where it meets the stairs.Above your last riser.Would look fine and no tripping hazards.

Why not rip off that carpet & refinish the stairs? IMO, it would look a lot better off with the carpet.

Most stairs are built with plywood and for some people, slick wood staircases are not practical.

Laminate should not be used on stairs anyway. It needs to float.

Do you think insulting the OP is helpful? Besides, different people have different tastes. I personally, find nothing wrong with the carpet color.
