How Do I Determine The Direction In Which To Install My Laminate Flooring?

This is something that is ultimately up to you in the end, as you will be able to visualize which direction looks best in the room you would like to install the floor in. However, there are some general guidelines that may help you. For starters, running parallel to the main source of natural light is a great way to accent the floor. If you are installing in a room with little to no natural light, your second option is to run the floor with the length of the room, as opposed to the width. Also consider your dimensions- a floating floor should not run more than 40 ft long or 20 ft wide, and must be broken up at these dimensions.
