Carpet and Cabinets
On the '87 tack strips were installed just outside the cabinet line (exactly as in home construction) and the carpet was just laying loose under the cabinet on the back side of the tack strip. Hopefully it will be similar on yours. Taking the carpet out should be a piece of cake. I used fairly wide trim pieces on the Pergo up against the cabinets. It's hard to get Pergo closer than 3/8" to the sides due to the board to board latch mechanism.
Already installed a granite table top. I did not have any recessed holes for any previous tables. Bought a Pedastle and top and bottom mount from PPL, just screwed the bottom mount in through the Pergo, made a hell-for-stout wooden top support for the granite and trimmed it in oak. I cut down the size of the table 2" in both width and length. The 2" made a big difference in sitting comfort and kitchen mobility.
Barrel chairs will not be utilized. Really never utilized them prior to the redo. We have never travelled with more than four people total.
