I am not a flooring expert but most that I have seen or read about "floating" floors states that it needs a space (usually at least 3/8") between solid walls. This is usually covered by a molding (either 1/4 round or baseboard) so the floor can expand and contract without bowing. Watch this post for the expert answers.

There is a transition piece you can get that has a straight finished edge. Install the uchannel and then just click it in place but pay carefull attention to the measurements so you get the uchannel in just the right place.
