I’ve heard the angle of the light coming in your windows or from other sources and reflecting on your floor changes the appearance of it. Can someone explain how to correctly lay floor and set up lighting to enhance the appearance of bamboo? Thank you for any help you can provide!

RE: lighting
It is preferred to run the planks parallel with the incoming light. However, if the room is considerably longer than it is wide, or vice versa, installers usually run the planks parallel to the longest wall. Another thing to consider is that you should run the planks perpendicular to the flooring joists to avoid creating "valleys and hills" in the event that the joists are slightly uneven.

RE: lighting
Prior to installing your new flooring, loose lay it in different directions so that you will be able to determine what your preference will be. Let it lay for a few days so that you can see it during the day and also at night.

The general rule of thumb is A. Install perpendicular to the flooring joists for added support. B Try to install it parallel to the longest wall. C Install parallel to incoming light.
