underlayment direction

First off, thank you for these boards. I have found so many answers to my questions here, some even before I know to ask them.

We are installing Harmonics laminate in most of the downstairs. The kitchen is tile so we are skipping that and leaving carpet in the guestroom, vinyl in the bath. We have the formal dining room done now but are starting the hall. the hall has a big niche in it for the kitchen entry and a big diagonal from the tile in the foyer (leaving that too). It would be easier to do the underlayment in smaller pieces but that would mean laying it perpendicular to the direction the planks will go. Is that ok?

battyjac, welcome to the DoItYourself.com forums

Not the pro here, but since no one has posted a reply yet, I would do whatever the manufacturer requires you to do. Easier is always nice but IMO, following the instructions is better so it won't void the warranty.

I was trying to picture what you're talking about, but I can't (I don't have a good imagination ). Can you post a link (pic) to what you're talking about? You'll have to use photobucket or the like and post the url.
