Lyle gave you correct info. I installed flooring a couple years WAY back. Most times when you had a lined patterned material, you had to find the lesser of the evils of where your eye first went to notice the straight line with a wall or cabinet. Your SD is newer than my '06 but mine, with carpet, has a molding edge strip screwed, with Philips heads, to the bottom of all the FG cabinets and carpet only at the bathroom wall. I'd pull the strips, cut and prep the floor and loose lay the flooring to get a visual to the lines and cabinets. If you're running it length wise down the isle, you probably will need to lay it out and trim both sides so the filler edges are equal. The edging strips will give you roughly a 1/4" to play with for cover. Laying it the other way, you only have to deal with the closet/shower/refer wall for a straight line. That's why you see so many houses with the flooring at a diagonal now.....it hides the blems of crooked walls
