Does anybody have any advice on turning a corner in a narrow hallway when laying down laminate flooring?
I laid down laminate in one of our bedrooms with no problem. I do know that the laminate should go parallel to the length of the hallway and all that, but at the end of the hall there is a ninety-degree turn to the right (then it's a few steps to the bathroom). I'd rather not have a "cross-planked" look along that part of the hall.
So is it possible to miter the flooring at 45 degrees, so that the flooring "turns" the corner at the end of the hall? If so, would a T molding be advisable where the two directions meet?
I have searched online and haven't been able to find a "how-to" that covers this subject. Other questions occur to me, like whether I would start laying the flooring at the turn/miter and then work outward.
Thanks in advance for whatever guidance you guys can offer.
