Installing wood flooring

I want to install wood flooring, either solid or engineered in two rooms next to one another. My concern is the floor joist change direction from one room to the other. I want the wood planking direction the same thru the two rooms. Is the joist direction a concern? If so is there a work around?

I wouldnt think so. Where (if you know yet) does the existing subfloor lie, and break. Where the joist direction changes..or beyond? If beyond, Id say all is pretty secure. I would probably reinforce the subfloor with screws and tighten it up.
If the 'break' in the subfloor is at the joist change..you may want to consider changing the subfloor to overlap the change..
That's just my opinion.. !
.
Just an afterthought.. my guess would be the joist change is at the room change...so lay new subfloor over the change..maybe by a couple of joists... Cut out..and tie in..
