Flooring transitions?

Laying laminate in 2 room and would like to know if I can just flow it thru the rooms without transitions? I seen people do on youtube but heard you should use transitions. Anybody have any info on this subject? Thanks!

The manufacturer will set limits on the linear feet you can lay their flooring. Best to put transitions in doorways than at the end of that prescribed point for obvious reasons. We laid 10mm flooring with attached cushion for a client and he specifically asked that we did not transition from the living room to the bedroom. I checked with the manufacturer and they allowed 40', and I needed 36'. I still did it with a disclaimer since it was not normal to do that. So far, so good with it. Now, with a lesser laminate, I would be hesitant to extend it through rooms without transitions.
