to put a wood floor under or against office fixtures.
I'm converting an old room into a study, and am trying to figure out which way to go with the solid wood flooring I've planned for the room. I'm going to be putting in two solid wood book cases, as well as building in a corner desk suite. I've been batting backwards and forwards regarding which way I should go with the flooring, to either lay it all down first and then put in all the fixtures on top of it, or put the fixtures in first and fir the floor around it.
Each has its pros and cons. If I put the flooring down first and build everything on top of it, I either have to tear out everything if I want to replace the flooring, or cut out the flooring and leave whats left underneath the desk suite and book cases. Alternatively, if I put the fixtures in first, then the flooring, should we ever decide to get rid of the book cases and/or the desk suite there'll be some unsightly gaps left in the wood floor that would require the whole thing being replaced.
