    What is the best way to lay my planks going from hall way to living room with no transitions if possible

    I'd go north south for the whole thing. I wouldn't like short lengths cutting across the hall where you enter. I initially thought I wouldnt want the living room north south, but I'm sitting in one as I type, and it's not offending my ocd!

    thank you for your reply. We lay down some loose planks and are going for long planks in hallway, then a transition and 90deg long planks in living room, just because of the way the living room is set out.
    what I didn't show was at the end of the living room furthest way from hall is French doors to the garden

    Ideally across any existing floor board , towards main light source and along the longer room dimension.

    I had a similar dilemma when I was doing my kitchen as both options had their downsides. I happened to lay a box of planks down diagonal and it just felt right so that's what I did. Maybe worth considering :)
