After a hellish journey buying a house with a water damaged wood floor, choosing and purchasing a new floor, tearing the old floor out, prepping the slab, etc.. my new floor installation was completed yesterday.

The installation started Friday and Saturday with the hallway/foyer, which looks great. Then my installer completed the job yesterday in the attached large living space. The hallway was laid in a random stagger, but the living area was laid in a very deliberate pattern, which looks ridiculous in my opinion.

The first image is of the hallway/foyer and the other 3 images are of the main living space.

Would any installers lay wood in such a deliberate pattern as it is in the living room, absent a special request? Would you lay one area in a random stagger and another area in a pattern? Any advice on what I should do now? I really love the floor but hate the living room install and we have spent so much money on this!

Thank you in advance for any imput.

It looks like the planks are all exactly the same length. I would think that the pattern is not as conspicuous when looking along the length of the boards. Sometimes I recommend putting some fine art on the wall to look at instead of always seeing the floor. Sorry.

The installer could have done better with the esthetics and avoided stairstep/lightening bolt patterns. Hopefully, when the room has furniture in it the patterning might not be so obvious.
