    Looking for some advice please.

    I have laid many laminate floors, but not in a kitchen with unit legs to negotiate with!

    In the 1st picture, how would you advise to cut laminate around the unit leg? I don't qant to leave a 10mm expansion gap at the side and front of unit leg as it would look horrendous.

    Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks. 20200919_085541.jpg 20200918_192539.jpg 20200918_192527.jpg

    the end panel and plinth you cut to go onto the laminate flooring
    The feet should be behind the plinth
    At least thats how have done 4 kitchens, BUT just a DIYer

    Remove end panels and plinths, cut laminate to finish inside these items then trim them to new floor height before you refit

    Not just end panels to floor , kitchen would need dismantling to fit as you mentioned and with panels on top have no expansion room.
