In what direction should I place my hardwood flooring?

Directing Your Planks

The direction in which you place the pattern of your hardwood floors plays an important part in creating a certain energy for the room. For example, planks should run in the direction of sunlight coming into a room from the window or patio doors. Likewise, you can place planks in any direction you want o your guest's eyes to focus, such as a mantel or fine piece of art on the wall. The size of the planks also makes a difference. Large rooms can be made to feel more cozy by using wider planks. For uneven walls or odd-shaped rooms, consider diagonal plank installation to draw attention away from the off-balance feel.
