Where to start first row?

Ok I hope this doesn't get confusing. I am planning on installing a floating tongue and groove floor in my kitchen. I know to install length wise on the longest most visible wall first. My only problem is that both of my long walls have a cabinets on them. One also has a chimney. So I can't start anywhere with a full first row. Is there a solution to this?

Welcome to the forums! Snap a perfectly aligned (squared) line across whichever starting point you have, say the fireplace. Measure back to the wall, less your wall clearance,and back lay until you get to the line. Do this on both sides, then start your long run across the face of the obstacle.
