New Kitchen Units Install - Leg Height

I have my new kitchen being delivered on Saturday (at last) and its from Wren and there is a fixed height that the legs need to be at (150mm i think).

The issue is, i have not put the flooring down yet (going to be 9mm laminate with underlay).

Should i increase the leg height to take this into account or just leave it as ordered or should i install the kitchen on loose laminate boards

What does everyone else do in this situation?

I would stick a bit of 9mm ply under each leg as you may find there is not enough adjustment on the legs . Other option is to cut down the plinths but to be avoided if possible.
Are any appliances going in cupboard run?
Laminate not great in a kitchen .

Another question

I have a 130mm filler that fits from the wall to the first unit, I cannot find any instructions on how the hell to fix these other than to use the force

Anyone ever had to do this?

I just screw through the wall of the first unit into the filler. Fit the unit first and scribe in the filler after.

If it's hinge side put the screws behind the hinges. Otherwise I use these with a tiny bit of filler to cover the hole.
