Should I redo the flooring before or after I make over my closet?

I’m re-doing my closet inside and the opening, and need to know weather I should remove the carpet in it and put down laminate flooring before I redo the opening, or can I do it after?

    The big question...does it have a door? If it does removing the carpet afterwards might leave too big of a gap under the door. If it’s a walk-in it doesn’t matter.

    Remove the carpeting, redo the opening, then lay down the laminate. Any cuts, angles will need to be made in the flooring. Also you don't want to damage new flooring during the work.

    Remove the carpet before you redo the opening. Put the flooring down after you redo the opening--with the exception of finishing trim. Any finishing trim should go on after the flooring.
