We are renovating the kitchen/dining room in our 1950 house. The kitchen is original to the house and the dining room was added on in 1958. The floor in the dining room is higher than the original kitchen floor and has a drop of a half inch over a three foot span. The dining room floor currently has two layers of linoleum and the kitchen has a layer of linoleum and a thin layer of plywood. We want to install bamboo floors throughout both rooms as well as pantry cabinets on the part of the floor that is sloped. Any suggestions of what to do to have the floor level enough to install the pantry cabinet and the bamboo flooring?
