Great idea John! I like the fact that you made the step a good contrasting color. House builders in this neck of the woods try to avoid single step floor levels, instead prefer a two step. This is to increase the depth perception with the two steps. Their experience is that a one step difference in floor levels can cause people, especially those not familiar with the dual level floors, and those that carry the same floor finish to both levels, i.e. carpeting, to miss-step & fall. What you did completely avoids that & makes it much safer with the contrast.
I particularly like the edge trimming. Well done!
