There are so many different types of wood floors to choose from. It can be a difficult decision to decide on the type that best suites you and your family’s needs. However, this is not the only choice you will have to make. You will also have to decide which direction to have the hardwood installed. Thankfully, your knowledgeable wood floor contractor can help you with this decision. In this video, you will learn several tips to decide which way to lay your wood flooring.
The first tip is to have your flooring running with the windows. This means that the boards should be pointing towards and away from your windows. If you have multiple sets of windows facing different directions, consider which way the sun rises and sets. Therefore, you would want your boards to face East and West. Similarly, you want your wood floor to face towards and away from your door. This will make it look much more appealing for guests as they step into your home. However, there are some cases where you would want to face the boards perpendicular to a door. This would be the case if the room was much longer on the perpendicular side.
