Laminate Direction on a L shape floor?
the basement floor I am going to lay laminate on is L shape... this gives me a question on orientation of the laminate strips.... if I don't change orientation, then in one place the strip will be from one wall to another wall which is not the longest ... does this look odd?
what would professional do geneally on this situation? do they change direction so that both place use have a long strips feeling... forgive my English but I am sure you know what I meant...
if I need to change direction... do I need to put a T mould on the place where I change direction... as the floor is floating, I suppose I need to, but then that means that particular area is not 100% flat... is this good enough reason for me to stick with the odd looking one direction laying approach?
Personally I would run the flooring along the longest wall and keep it all the same direction. I don't like the look when you change direction plus the t moulding is a good toe catcher.
it it possible to not use a t molding but it takes skill.
you would have to plug the long ends of the lam into the small ends of the lam at the turn.
tough to pull off and probably would look wierd.
people do patterns in lam all the time without t moldings.
but that is usually a tile-wood look.
I would run it with the longest wall.
Yes I think I will keep the same direction... Thanks
