I would like to replace my kitchen floor with a vinyl click (LVT) product. The trouble is I cannot figure out how to do this as the existing floor is 10 mm thick, an 8 mm laminate with a 2 mm underlay.
I want to replace this with the waterproof vinyl click/ LVT flooring type but cannot find a way of figuring out how to replace with the same thickness. I want to keep it the same so I can keep cabinets, worktops, tiling etc all at the same height and do not want to have to move it all again. The complete floor must be replaced as the old one has become water damaged so it must go under the cabinets to the wall.
The thickest LVT I can find is 6.5 mm thick, but its so rigid the supplier states use with no underlay so that's a no go. I have even considered laying a new laminate and then a glue down 2 mm vinyl board on-top, but again with underlay it comes out way over 10 mm.
Am i missing an expert trade trick here? Is the answer to board out the kitchen with a 6 mm marine ply and use a 4 mm LVT? I am struggling to find the answer online so any help is very much needed and appreciated.
