Where to start laying the floor?
Thanks to this forum, we've finally made up our mind on engineered floors (7/16" Lauzon NextStep...), and now ready to do self install. Since we want to replace the entire main level, and want to go for a seamless look between rooms, I've been thinking about a good place to start laying those floors.
Here is approximate floor layout:
There are a lot of corners in that layout, and we'll be going around cabinets, not under them. Is green or red line a good place to start, to give a straightest base line? Or just go like usually from outside wall, probably in blue line in the living room?
Since we'll be using staples/cleats, if starting in the middle of the room, I don't really like an idea of face nailed boards going across the entire span of the house, where they are quite visible. Could I go with, say, glue and blind nailing?
