Question on Plank directions


I am redoing our bathroom floor with Starloc glueless flooring the plank sizes are 16 x 32 inches. The Bathroom is long and narrow, so the natural plank dirction would be length of plank along length of room right? But, the adjoinging bedroom has laminate running the other direction, and the hall will have hardwood running the other direction. What do the flooring masters do in this situation. Do we run the planks parallel to the laminate and upcoming hardwood, or go with the natural room direction which puts bathroom flloring at 90 degrees to adjoining bedroom and hall?

see the attached drawing.

Thanks all

I just don't see a problem with doing it as depicted in the drawing (except for just inside the doorway, I don't know what that's all about). That is the sensible way to do it to me. I would be sure that the transitions occur exactly under the center of the doors.

that inside the doorway is just a sample of the alternative. would it look dumb if we did the room the way it is just inside the hall doorway?

I guess I see no reason to do that. Typically the changes are made under the center of the door when it is in a closed position. This way the "look" is consistent from either side of the closed door.
