Remod Questions


I am currently in the process of remodeling a 1 bedroom house. I am redoing all of the flooring, walls, cabinets etc...

Question 1: I am putting laminate flooring in the kitchen, living and hallways. Since it is a floating floor, do you put the cabinets in first and then butt the flooring up to it? What do you do around the washer and dryer? under the stove, dishwasher and fridge?

Question 2: I removed all of the baseboard heating unites (excluding the plumbing). What is the easiest way of putting it all back in. I have never dealt with that stuff and it was a pain in the you know what to get out so I am assuming it is going to be worse putting back in. Any tips?

Question 3: Tile under the bathroom vanity? Around the toilet or under?

Remod Questions


Tiling the bathroom must be under the toilet, toilet should be taken out before tiling. I didn't do that before but I saw contractor did that for our old place bath room tiling. I am going to do the same for my basement in the future... For flooring laminate stuff, I think you should do all under stove, washer, dryer...etc. this is how professional doing it, no cutting corner. For carbinet, I am not sure, may be someone will answer you...

You got it right on the money. A person should never put cabinets on top of any floatong floor.
Tiling under cabs is okay to but the only draw back is if you ever have to replace the flooring the cabs will have to come out.
