Q: Should cabinets be installed on top of the hardwood flooring? I have heard different opinions and don’t know which is correct.
A: I don’t know that there is a right or wrong answer. If you think that one day you may want to change the layout of your kitchen somewhat, then, for the long term, it may be better to install the hardwood wall to wall. Some would rather save the expense of putting flooring under cabinets that they will never see.
