I just put in a floating laminate floor, I have a concrete step going from the kitchen to the laundry room that is rounded at the corner. I am trying to put laminate on top and on the face of the step but I don't know how to get the laminate to bend around the corner. Is there a way to get the laminate to bend around the front of the step?

I cannot directly suggest this as I have not worked with laminate. But I would imagine that you could kerf cut it. At least that should give you a place to start searching. If the radius is not too big, you could go with matched wood at that point.

Kerf cutting would never work. Do you have the correct finishing pieces you will need to apply the product to the stair? Most manufacturers do have the items needed to cover the stairs so if you do not have them go back and get the finishing pieces you will need. The rounded corner is a problem. Maybe the manufacturer sells the item you will need but I have not seen them. Many do sell sheet laminate that matches the flooring and is probably flexible enough to bend a corner. Here is a link to a video showing the installation of laminate flooring to a stair. Perhaps it will help you in your quest. Laminate Flooring Flushmount Stair Nose

I would look at correcting the rounded edge with something, such as framing in some plywood over the top and front. Properly secured, you could then put the laminate on top of it.

Hi Jonathan. Welcome to The Home Theater Forum. You probably shouldn't have your full address posted there just something like MD or Earth would be better.
