Graham Blueprint Request
Hi Joe, I am excited about starting my flooring project. I am looking to replace all the flooring on the first floor, stairs, upstairs hallway and two rooms with LVP. I currently have oak hardwood on the first floor and carpet upstairs.
On the first floor, I would like the direction of the flooring to go north to south. For the first floor, I think an east to west direction would look best, but I’m open to other thoughts.
Along with re-doing my floors, I am also moving forward with a moderate kitchen remodel which will include replacing all of my cabinets. Currently the cabinets sit on top of the hardwood, I plan to remove the hardwood floors in the kitchen and have the cabinets be installed directly on the subfloor. I know it would probably be easier to install the LVP before the kitchen cabinets get installed, but I don’t know if I will have enough time between demo and installation and I’m worried about the new floors getting damaged during the install.
Are there any major downsides to not running the flooring under the new cabinets? Also, would it be feasible to have the starting point in the dining room or living room? If I could knock those out first and then focus on the kitchen and entry after the remodel, that would be ideal.
I plan on going with the Flooret Arbor Signature. The dimensions are below and the pics are attached.
- Thickness: 7 mm
- Wear Layer: 40 mil (1.0 mm)
- Width: 9″ Length: 72″
