Blueprint Request Dan
Dan here, we have a 1950s Ranch Style home where we ripped out the green carpet and would like to replace the asbestos tiles underneath with Avant XPE Rigid Core LVP by Eternity Flooring. Using your tutorials, I measured out the centerline of our hallway and am using that as the foundation for our layout. According to plans, everything should fall into place nicely. Now we just need to know where to start our first row and would like your advice for our specific floorplan. Also, is there anything we should look out for?
Additional info because I feel that I left out some other details:
Hallway/Dining room closets:
We will be adding LVP to the entire house except the bedrooms and their respective closets. There is a sliding closet opening in the hallway that leads to the bedroom in addition to a similar opening in the dining room. I have ripped out the existing overhang rail closets and will be replacing with the more modern closets that have rails on the floor. I would assume I would just go ahead and install the LVP first before installing the railing over it correct?
Our kitchen cabinets are not in yet and the installers are waiting for our signal. It’s just an empty room at the moment. Can we go ahead and tell them to start installing cabinets? I was told to ask them to “leave the toekick panels out”. When it comes time to lay the flooring, the flooring would go a little under the cabinets then be covered with the toe kick. Not sure how this will all work with the parts that there is no toekick (dividers for fridge, etc) But my concern is this, with our brand new cabinets in, I’d prefer not to cut the base cabinets away with a multitool in order to slide the flooring underneath. Is this unavavoidable? I was also told not to install the flooring before the cabinets. I’d also like to avoid using a shoemold. So I guess my question is this.. is there a way to install the flooring after the cabinets in a way that we do not have to undercut the cabinets and not have to use a shoemold to have the appearance of the flooring go under the cabinets? In my head I’m thinking no and that you’d have to use some type of shoemolding or undercut.
Thank you very much Joe!
