I recently bought a house with bamboo flooring in the living and dining rooms, and enough left over that I could probably use it in the kitchen. I don't have to deal with a lot of traffice and bamboo is extremely hard so I'm not worried about durability. My question is about installing it. Do I have to remove cabinets or should I just peel up the vinyl tiles that are currently there and put the bamboo over top of whatever is underneath?
