Wink tresholds between rooms

One more question, may be more then one?.

I am getting ready to install the floor (floating it).
Three areas are adjacent to each other; Fam. room., hallway and the office.
I am going to start from the office into the hallway and then family room.
Do I need to install T-Molding/Threshold at least between the office and the hallway?
I am just having a hard time imagining how the whole thing is going to
'move around' if everything is glued together?..

Undercut ALL the doorjambs and the baseboards back 2" from the doorjamb trim. This will let you slide the laminate under the doorjambs for a clean fit, while still allowing the expansion needed. Then allow your specified expansion around the perimeter, and cover with 1/4 round, making sure the nails used to install the 1/4 round doesn't lock the laminate in, thus nowhere for expansion to happen. All fixed objects need trim or need to be undercut to allow expansion.

Thanks a lot!

Sounds like it's going to work.
