Ok... floorboards long ways or cross ways?

Seems like both will create their own unique visual effect. I have always thought longways but then I've seen a few that go the other way, and it doesn't seem so bad.

Thoughts?

long ways looks like a bowing alley, but makes the bus look long and big and gives a natural flow to the space. cross ways makes the bus look wider, and shorter, but has unnatural flow. either way looks good. I notice this when laying flooring down in houses, and when trying to decide on my bus, still haven't installed yet.

Been looking at cork lately, which doesn't have a grain. I figure since the entire bus only needs about 75 square feet, it might as well be something nice.

I was planning on using wood grain anti-fatigue mat for the floor
