Diagonal Hardwood Flooring12:28 PM
It's been a while since Matt and I have worked on some hardwood flooring. We purchased 44 boxes of hardwood flooring when we purchased our home last July. We put hardwood flooring in the living room, dining room, Matt's son's bedroom, and our bedroom. After all that we still have 9 boxes left. Originally we were planning to do the kitchen as well but decided to tile that room instead. What to do with the left over? Well, do another room. We have a small bedroom thats off the living room right by the front door. And since it's right off the living room we decided to change the direction of the wood so we don't have to worry about everything being straight. Anyway, here's the progress so far. (With some tips that I've figured out.)
Work your way out into the room. I found that if you make 3 separate beginning pieces with 45º angle cuts and work your way to the other end, but leave the last piece open, you can work with 3 rows at a time, you will be switching your miter angle less ofter and saving yourself time.
