Allure floor needs new subfloor to raise?

I'm installing some allure trafficmaster floating planks throughout a main room and a kitchen. The main room has a plywood subfloor, while the kitchen has linoleum that is about 1/16" higher than the plywood. Should I try and raise the plywood up to that level with a subfloor, or is it unnescesary given the rather small height difference? I'd like the floor to be one continuous surface throughout.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

 Hello MrChoutte, and welcome to the Community! 

If the difference is only 1/16 of a inch, I would not worry about it. As per Allure instructions: "Allure can be installed over most existing floors including wood, vinyl, inoleum, ceramic tiles and concrete. All subfloors must be sound, solid and have little flexibility. tolerance is 1/4" over 10' and the floor should not slope down more than 1" in 6'."
