I have a basement trap door right in the middle of my kitchen and I want to install laminate floor only.

I have to deal with this trap door, and I do not really know how, I have a few ideas please include yours.

Glue the flooring down with and adhesive and finish the edges with riser's and do the same with with the main floor to the door finishing with risers and bevels to maintain seemless install.

This will however leave a little extra lift in the floor that would be felt a lot while walking on it.

Or would cutting the floor to fit, and not finishing the floor ends with a riser, and mearly dropping a small throw rug over top?
