Odd Shaped Room

Can anyone help me please ? I am trying to install hardwood flooring in an odd shaped room (picture attached). Should I run one long line from the master closet to the master bedroom through hallway 2 and the run flooring the long way through the entry hallway stopping with a transition piece OR do I treat the master closet and the entry hallway as seperate areas and transition both.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the forum!

Is this nail down hardwood or is this a floating product?

Probably floating. Do you have a preference ?

I believe Tolyn was getting to the possibilities of using reversing splines with nail down, where you can't with floating floors.

Not knowing your preference in design, you may create an easy transitional floor by changing direction with the flooring. Naildown would be the best for this operation.

The other thing I was getting at is a floating floor would definitely require transitions at the master bedroom door and at the two hallways. Where nail down would likely would not.
