Any pics of laminate installed on stairs

Does anyone have some pictures of laminate installed on stairs as well as if they are happy with it and would they do it again? I have 3 levels in my home all with the same narrow plank laminate on them and am trying to decide how best to cover the stairs. We have two large dogs so hardwood treads are out, they will destroy them with their nails. I Think i would prefer to try to tile them, my wife wants the laminate the same as on the other levels. I am afraid using the same laminate will not give the stairs any definition, she is worried that the tile will be too slippery and hard if you do fall on it. Any pics of what you have done as well as experience appreciated.

thanks

Using same laminate on stairs will provide continuity and flow in floor covering.

Laminate. Most laminate manufacturers offer nosing if doing stairs.

If you want to see some pictures of laminate flooring on stairs, please visit

http://www.cfab.co.uk/gallery/before...ng_stairs.html

or

http://www.cfab.co.uk/gallery/morepi...ng_stairs.html


where you will find plenty of installations carried out by myself. You might want to take a look through the many other gallery sections also.

Incidentally, the nosings used are Quickstep stair profiles which click directly into Quickstep laminates (all ranges) offering a seamless matching profile with no visible fixings, such as screws.
