I like it on the diagonal.
Actually I do too but in this case it wont factor in.
OK, lets drop the pretense and let me tell yall my rant.Years ago I had an old timer tell me that whenever possible run the floor with the direction of daylight. His reasoning was that any imperfections would blend in with the light and soften them. The seams are often invisible too if installed right.
Since then I have heard of installers who prefer to run from the main doorway perpendicular to make the room seem larger. When conditions allow of course. These rooms in question (52 of them) follow both patterns and they are slab on grade so joists are not a factor.
So. Lets rewind back to Jan. when I got a picture from the archy (I'll use that term loosely in this case) that showed just exactly that same orientation. When we had 6 rooms installed (with epoxy as spec'd of course) she wanted them torn out and turned the other way. Epoxy is not easy to get off either.
She said " Dont look at the pictures."
I said "Then why send them to me?"
To make matters worse I did a minor change to the exterior in Feb. and she wanted to know why it wasnt like her picture. :furious:
I was just wondering what yall thought about it.
