we had laminate installed in main areas of home last year. The main area meets 3 of the bedrooms and each has a transition strip (carpet in bedrooms). I am now replacing carpet with same laminate in those bedrooms. Should I keep the same direction going with the laminate or can I change direction? The transition pieces will remain. I think the bedrooms would look better with laminate running left to right under beds instead of top to bottom but that would require changing direction.
