We plan on laying down wood flooring in 2 adjacent rooms of our house. One, is our kitchen/family room, which is about 30' X 17'. The room adjacent, and at a right angle, is the dining room. The flooring area is about 13' X 26'
It seems logical that the wood planks in the kitchen should be oriented lengthwise with the room. Also this would place the planks perpendicular to the floor joists. All good so far. The dining room which is adjacent to the kitchen is also a rectangle. It seems to me that the flooring planks should also be placed lengthwise with the room.
My wife says that the flooring must orient in the same direction. Would we be violating design rules to have 2 adjacent rooms have the wood flooring planks oriented at right angles? Does it matter?
Thanks in advance
