From an installer point of view, any direction is possible BUT it will really depend on your interior outlook and personal preference. The installation can be done lengthwise or width wise, no issues.

On a general rule of thumb, the most effective way is when you lay your flooring the same direction as the main light source and in the same alignment with your main entrance. But usually a house will have several rooms and different windows placement, base on the difference, you can adopt different direction that best suit the room.


 General Rule – Lay your floor in the same line as the main light source and entrance.
