Installing around furniture?

Q: I am planning to get either hardwood or laminate floors in my townhouse. On the stairs from the foyer up to the first floor, and on the first floor (approximately 200 square feet). What I was wondering is: do I have to completely remove all my furniture from the first floor before I have the floors installed?

There is a kitchen with ceramic tiles, which I have not decided if I will get done or not. Obviously the smaller furniture (bookcases, small chair, small tables, etc.) I can move, but I also have a larger TV, a larger chair, and a heavy queen size sofa bed. Would this all have to be moved out?

A: That really depends. With pre finished floors it is possible to move and work around some items. That is where the advantage is and ends with factory finished floors.
