Interior Partition Not Parallel In Kitchen


I'm running hardwood flooring throughout the house, including the kitchen. I have an interior partition that is not parallel to the exterior wall that I started the flooring from. The result is that over the ~7' span of this wall, there's about a 3.5" difference from one side to another as far as where the hardwood seam sits. This wall just so happens to have some kitchen cabinets on it, so I *could* simply bump out one end of the cabinets so that this run is parallel to the flooring, and leave the counter guys to scribe the countertops to fit. I know it would be tough to pick up a difference in countertop "depth" visually normally, but this is a LOT. What to do? Split the difference? Hug the wall and ignore the flooring?

With that corner, the angle will show no matter what. There are the cabinets as well and you can't change them. I'd take your first option to scribe the counter to the wall. You probably will have to buy wider or a full sheet. If the material has a pattern grain, you must match it.

JMHO, to heck with the floor and run the base cabs to wall. To do otherwise would hide one issue which is on the floor, and create another at eye level.

The angle on the floor would bother me more than the angle on the counter. Unless your counter has a pattern, like tile, it'll be less noticeable there.

Re: Interior Partition Not Parallel In Kitchen


A bit more involved, but I'd pull the drywall and make the wall parallel to avoid all of the issues of flooring and countertop.
