Has anyone put wood flooring into a house (kitchen) that had something thinner like tile or linoleum, etc? How do you deal with the kitchen cabinets? I put tile in my current house where the house was "built for linoleum" by the builder, and with tile, they just filled in the gaps around the cabinet with grout. Since tile is about 1/4" and hardwood is 3/4"... the cabinets will appear "sunken into the floor", no? Do you just cover the gap with 1/4" round? Also read some suggestions you can add a thin veneer to the toe kick to cover the gap. I was looking at my kitchen, and the toe kick veneer would work for the fronts, but there are two spots where the side is visible. Also how do you deal if you have a counter overhang that has support posts? Basically, its a situation where I plan on replacing the cabinets AND switching to hardwood, but can't necessarily do them both at the same time as you gotta figure hardwood is probably $25k to $30k all in (about 2000 to 2400 sq ft) and new cabinets & countertop are another $15k to $25k? I guess the best result it to do them both at the same time so you can demo the cabinets and then do the floor and then put the cabinets in so everything is leveled properly.
