Hi tgy,

Thanks for joining us here on the community.

Depending on what type of flooring you have determines how it can be started in the room.

For floating vinyl and laminate plank floors, you start on the edge of the room and work until it reaches the other side. This also applies to hardwood flooring, whether you glue or nail it down.

For glue down peel and stick, natural stone and ceramic/porcelain tiles that adhere to the subfloor, always start in the middle of the room. It looks better this way and allows for the least amount of cutting when it reaches the walls.

Once it reaches the tile section, if the new floor is level with it, then you can use a T-moulding strip. If the new floor is higher, then  you use a hard surface reducer to provide the proper transition.

Let us know if you have any further questions,
