I'm currently working on a riser in my basement theater room. Due to lack of ceiling height it is a 2x4 on edge with 3/4" plywood decking.The main area where you would step up is fine and I will do bull nose overhang and have the carpet tucked around the overhang. I'm not sure what to do with the front area of the riser. There will be a cove area in the riser for a smaller sized couch with a step down on either side. Problem is due to the basement floor being pitched towards a drain that riser step has only 2" on one side & 1-3/4""of 2x4 height on the other. Do I even want to overhang the decking or would I just be creating a toe buster. If I do overhang will the carpet guy have room to wrap around?
