Installing 3/4 inch hardwood in "L" shaped hallway


Should I run the boards across the joists consistently as normally done; or should I do a 45 degree angle where the hall turns 90 degrees and use a transition strip to cover at the 45 degree cuts?. Both ways seem to have some appearance 'cons'.

A whole lot easyer to do straight runs with no 45's.
You would not use a trasition strip, use splines instead so there is nothing sticking out above the floor.
