Which way to lay Vinyl plank flooring?

Name:  basement.jpg

I'm going to be installing Vinyl click plank flooring in the basement and not sure how to lay it, mainly in Room 2.

For Room 1 and 3 I was thinking of going horizontal. For Room 2 I believe a T-molding should be used to separate the room in case the floor moves. Not sure if I should go vertical or horizontal in that room. Or is any of this makes sense?

Also, where do you think should I start laying the vinyl?

I would keep all the floor horizontal. My 1950's home has original oak planks, all running the same direction, similar to your home. It looks good to great

I would start laying the floor at the top left of room 2 and work your way right and down through the rooms.

Would I have to separate Room 2 with a T-molding?

No T-molding, the floor will interlock throughout the house (including the doorway) if you lay it all horizontally.

Another question. I have two sliding doors with a bottom rail on the floor right now. How do I add these on top of vinyl planks? I think I can't screw into the planks because they need to be able to move. Any ideas what else I can do?
