Laminate Wood Flooring - Beading

We have laid laminate flooring in both my lounge and hall. We did not remove the skirting board before laying the floor and purchased beading to cover the edges. However we have come across a problem in the hall where we have 7 doorways (I live in a flat not a mansion!) each of which has a curved frame. Does anybody have any suggestion as to how we either a) cut the beading at the correct angle (15 degrees, I think with two bits of beading) or b) any other suggestion for how to cover the curved edges.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

I'm not sure what you mean by curved frames on your doorways. If you mean that the jambs have rounded edges instead of square ones, an acceptable way of trimming around them is to use a short 45 degree angle piece to go around the corner. Make the miter cuts at 22 1/2 degrees to get the pieces to fit at the 45 degree angle. Hope this helps.
