I have laminate floor, I think I want lino

I need to replace my kitchen cupboards

I also need to use my kitchen Mon-Fri as business premises

So how do I do this?

If your new kitchen has clip of kick boards the lino can go in last, remove the kickboards and slide the lino under the kitchen units then clip the boards back in place, this will prevent the lino from lifting or becoming a dirt trap. If you put the lino down first the chances are it could be damaged

Hmm good idea

& if I take the existing tiles off I have some flexibility about cupboard height

So do I remove the laminate or lino over, If I remove I think I might need a skim of concrete to level the floor

Weekend 1 - remove laminate
Weekend 2 - skim concrete
Weekend 3 - fit already made up carcasses & use old worktop as a stop gap
Weekend 4 - fit new worktop
weekend 5 - lay lino

But the sink won't work in that schedule will it?

Hmm needs more thought
