Floor Help

I am installing laminiate floor in a hallyway. Do I need to find the center point and work outward on both sides to the wall, or start on one wall and work to the other wall? I have 3 door transiations to work around and 2 of them are on the wall side one on each side, so I know I have to rip a few pieces, just want to make sure I start in the right spot.

Also - i was planning on staggering the pieces 6 inches to ensure the seams are not in line, is that enough space?

Thanks

you start on one wall working towards the other. What you do want to measure is the width of the hallway and the width of the laminate boards you're putting down. You don't want the last row to be a tiny strip, ideally at least half the width (or more) of the board. This may require you to rip down your starting row so things work out as you approach the last row.
