Multiple layers of flooring

Q: I would like to install a new kitchen floor. This floor butts up against a hardwood floor. How do I transition to keep all floors the same height?

Do I have to remove the existing kitchen floor to make it even?

A: If the existing floor is going to make installing a new floor too high… yes! I am not a big believer in multiple layers. Best to go to the sub floor and hire a professional.
