I Need Help With Installation Direction!
I have read that it looks correct to install the boards straight in from the front door not side to side which I could do although I could also see it the side to side direction more. But if it looks best straight on I'd do that. my dilema is when you walk in you run into staircase in about 10 feet that goes upstairs and downstairs, when you go up the stairs you can see the mid and lower level floors as it is a catwalk hallway to the bedroom that runs horizontal to the door and I think it would look funny running the boards vertical up there to match the other two floors. So what do you think? Would it look strange to have the upper floor in one direction looking down over a floor in another direction? Would it look fine to run hallway wood side to side instead of the long way? Or should I run the floor on the other floors horizontal to the doors in the house to match long running boards in the upper hallway? The floor will be lauzon red oak riviera stain so fairly neutral I think.
