I have two adjoining rooms, in an "L-shaped" arrangement, with a wall seperating them, but with a doorway at the "junction" of the "L", such that a person could see both rooms at one time.
I am told by the manufacturer to lay the flooring in the same direction as the longest wall, which I did with one of the rooms (let's say the vertical part of the "L"). This obviously makes the room look longer. The problem is the adjoining room...
It would look funny to lay the laminate along this new room's longest wall (i.e.,the horizontal part of the "L"), giving the visible impression that the floors in both rooms are perpendicular to each other, instead of in a "continuum" (as if the line of the laminate continues through the wall, and thus, was like that since the house was built, with one continuous line of hardwood flooring).
So, in the new room, should I design the laminate consistent with the longest wall, or should I continue the "line" of the adjoining room (laying the laminate along the shortest wall)?
