My father and I are installing lock n' seal laminate flooring (tongue in groove)in my house. I started at one side of my living room and worked my way across it and my hallway, into the kitchen and dining room.We are now nearly to the cabinets of my kitchen. since I have to lock the flooring in end to end (requiring almost a 35-45 degree angle to slip in), and side to side, how in the world do I get it under the edges of my cabinets? I have cabinets on each end, about 1 foor wide, and about 9 feet in between, sort of like this:

I have about 3" of cabinet to get back under--but how? Any help appreciated

can you slide them in from the side of the cabinet ?

i know of noother way.

you should have started your installation off the cabinets if you wanted them under.

for coverage you can cut, paint, and tack-on/glue-on a toe-kick piece to cover the edge.
