Question Bordering a Sunken Living Room??


Hope some of you have an idea of how to solve my problem. I have some engineered Hardwoord floating flooring I am installing that borders on 2 sides to a sunken carpeted living room.
I wish to install a flush stair nose moulding on these 2 sides, about 26 feet total. I can give expansion space everywhere on the project but at these mouldings which I plan to nail in place. Am I asking for trouble keeping 2 sides "fixed"? An "over The Top Step Nose" type moulding is not avaialble for the brand I purchased, only the flush type is. The flooring thickness is 9/16 ".

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

On one side you could get by with it, two sides I would not advise.

You could use an overlap nosing made from a different mfg. The floor don't care as long as the thickness, profile and color is right.

A couple of manufacturers make over the top nosings for 9/16". Tarkett is one, I can't think of the other that I've seen.
