L shaped hall and engineered wood flooring

Postby diydave » Tue Oct 30, 2007 12:23 pm

I have an L shaped hall and want tolay some engineered wood flooring. One part of the L is longer than the other.

Do I lay the floor so that it points in the same direction or do I ;lay it so that it comes to a 90 degree angle.

My guess is the first one which will mean that the boards will go across the way then straight down the hall on the longer part.

Many thanks

Simply Build It

I would suggest laying both sections length ways because sanding a floor across the board is a big no-no.
Maybe make a feature of it with a 45 degree angle joint
