direction of wood planks in L shaped room
I am having hardwood put down in our L shaped living and dining area. It is an L shape with living room on one wall and dining room on perpendicular wall. Each area is about the same length. There is a fireplace in the crook of the L which is at a diagonal to both areas. I am wondering if diagonal with the boards parallel to the direction of the fireplace would look better than have it lengthwise down one area and horizontal across the other area. I don't think horizontal will look right in either area, yet one or the other would have to have it that way unless there is another method. Is there another solution that would be aesthetically pleasing that I haven't thought of?
