I am laying vinyl plank flooring in the kitchen. I know the correct way is to go perpendicular to the house entrance and the floor joists. The trouble is the doorway to the living room. The living room is laid east to west, parallel to the floor joists and main entrance. If I do it correctly the kitchen will be perpendicular to the living room hardwood floor and that might look odd. What should I do?
This question, although properly phrased and detailed has been put on hold by members of the community for some unknown reason. It calls for expertise and informed opinion, which seems to be lacking in some of the answers, which relied primarily on opinion rather than informed expertise.
I actually got a great answer from http://homeguides.sfgate.com/correct-direction-laying-hardwood-floors-49169.html
So yes there is actually a correct way to lay a floor. Unfortunately this community board was utterly useless.
@mmathis you should spend more time educating your self as to home improvement techniques and less time gathering your friends to vote a question on hold. Although I admit it's a great way to force new users off the stack, if they disagree with your opinion.
