On a "glue" laminate floor instalation, can you use a filler strip to put two boards together groove to groove?
In this setup, the filler strip would act as the tongue for both boards.
Basically, I'm putting down laminate in the bedrooms and hall of my home. At the doorway to one bedroom - about 26" wide - it makes sense to "reverse" the board direction to make the installation in the one bedroom much easier. The back wall is irregular, so trying to bring it up from that wall to align with the boards in the hall is near impossible. As the opening is only small, I'm just wondering if reversing the boards, using that "tongue filler" would work. It would only be this small 26" section that I'd have to reverse the boards at. The rest of the room doesn't interact with any other part of my installation.
I can't see why it wouldn't ... but I'm no pro so I thought I'd see what you all had to say.
Many thanks. Cheers.
