Question

salesman reccommends orienting planks so that the long way is visible from the entrance, however this would mean having planks going crosswise down the hallway.
This sounds funky to me. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
BK

You could reverse the way the planks are laid in the hall. Thats not uncommon. Really, the decision is yours - how do you want it to look?

I don't know what kind of wood floor you're laying, but I'd lay it parallel to the hall -- I don't think it will look right otherwise.

If you have a choice in other areas, I'd lay it perpendicular to the joists.

And I applaud you for seeking opinions other than the salesman's. Try to find the manufacturer's web site for more ideas.

Hardwood is laid perpendicular to floor joists which should be on 16" centers.
