Laminating Concrete landing/step so that it stays in place.

Hi, I am Laminating my whole basement floor which for the most part seems strait forward. But, at the bottom of my basement stairs is a concrete landing/step about 3' x 3'6" and about 3" high.

I am worried that if I install it has a floating floor, it may just slide off when somebody steps on it. I do plan on putting quarter round
trim around the edges, but that may not keep in it place well enough. How do you think I should install it?

Quarter round molding will go against the step and wall, however, for the landing you will need a stair nose molding. The stair nose molding must be mechanically fastened to the concrete pad to keep it from moving. In your case, I would try to get an oak molding that is unfinished. Finish it to the color of your laminate. Drill and countersink so that you can attach it to the slab with screws. Pull some plugs from the excess molding and fill in the holes to cover the screw heads.
