    Perpendicular to the floor joists is one method. You planks would be running the long way rather than from wall side to wall side. I have seen it done both ways and it's not that you can't run it the other way. Tt does depend on how you are laying any room flooring that meets the hallway. Perferably you want it all running the same way or it will look choppy.

    You can do it either direction, but it usually more visually pleasing to run the long way down the hall

    I think it depends on if you want the hall to look longer or shorter. I remember having this question when we had a brick driveway installed. Our driveway is much longer than wider, so I had the bricks laid in a staggered but the bricks long sides going from side to side. of the driveway. we have two adjacent rooms in the back of our house. The floor boards go in opposite directions.

    Match the direction in adjoining rooms whenever possible. Or, it’s an opportunity to do something special... like a chevron pattern!

    I would go lengthwise.

  • If you don't already have the same flooring in adjoining rooms, I would run it the long way- it will look better and it's much easier to install long runs of flooring than make a bunch of cuts to do short pieces going across.
