The configuration of a space may create a natural layout, especially in consideration of the shape of a flooring product. Corridors and rectangular rooms are the most common example. The linear patterns in a carpet; the length of a wood or laminate plank; and, other directional flooring products should be installed according to the natural flow of the walls or the boundaries of a space. Running elongated patterns or colors contrary to the natural flow of foot traffic will visually frustrate those who walk the area.
