Hello.

I have a powder room that I'm about to lay hardwood flooring in. The length of the room is 72". The length of my hardwood is 74" so I could just cut my flooring and lay one plank down to stretch the entire floor.

Do I need to stagger the planks?

Thanks in advance.

Only if SWMBO , tells you to. :devil3:

Or you like the looks of staggered, or you want to work extra on it.:vs_smirk:

I prefer the staggered look, and also I think staggering helps provide a little extra interlock. If they're only locked along the long edges, they'll flex easier.

If the pieces are all long enough, one piece is good. If it is a continuation of a larger area through a doorway and the other area has end joints, I would continue the pattern.

The only thing I would have done differently is to put the flooring under the flange if possible. Perhaps it was not possible. Nice floor.

We did wallpaper in the 1980s. It lasts for a long time but over the last 10 years we have removed most of it.
