In the planning stages of installing some engineered hardwood flooring, floating. This stuff: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Home-Decorators-Collection-Hand-Scraped-Strand-Woven-Wellington-3-8-in-T-x-5-1-8-in-W-x-36-in-L-Engineered-Click-Bamboo-Flooring-YY2009G/300043018
Our floor layout is as follows:
Flooring will be in the living room and hallway.
Couple of questions:
Would you run everything in the same direction, in the living room and hallway, or run the living room the long way, and the hallway the long way?
If everything is going the same direction (I would assume in the direction of the hallway) what would be the best method to insure the boards end up going down the hallway parallel to the hallway wall? I could envision the hallway wall and the living room wall being slightly out of parallel, so that if I started at one end of the living room, by the time I get to the hallway, the boards going down the hallway are slightly skewed. I suppose I could start in the middle of the room, but that would require one row of boards to be nailed/glued down, right?
