I have read here that laminate should be floating and should be able to move, so if you use it in a kitchen application it's some what pinned down by the frig, a table and chairs maybe some other cabinets.
The movement is by expansion and contraction. These weighted objects will not stop this. No space along all wall edges will cause it to bind. Leave the required space and you will be fine. cabinets are fixed and the laminate should terminate before the kickspace, not going under the cabinet bases.
