          He wants everything to be only what he likes and he is making me miserable

          It's supposed to be a happy time but he won't even let me choose a toaster

          >he's doing everything from scratch but it's my apartment

          why did you let him barge into a place you paid for and do all sorts of work? I realize he's your dad but politely and firmly tell him you paid for it and you want it done the way you like. If he argues kick his boomer ass out.

          He bought the apartment "for me" but literally won't let me have any input on my part of it not even anything at all

          He also got mad at me for an entire day yelling because I got some bathroom mats he didn't like and threatened to sell the apartment and flip it for profit if I didn't return them even though I bought them with my own money

            wait since when do you OWN apartments? dont they usually get rented out? also if its new why wsnt it ifinished to begin with? you leaving out alot of details here, sperglord. if hes not living in the apartment tell him you will decorate it with whatever you like. either that or use your own money buy your own apartment and dont rely on your daddy to give you that "I bought it so I will decide what you do with it" mentality

              Brits use the terms a bit differently. "Apartment" in the UK is equivalent to condominium in the US. I believe they normally use "flat" to refer to a rental (apartment in the US), but not 100% sure on that.

              I live in eastern Europe stuff is different here, most apartments come unfinished.

              He will be visiting like once a month cause it's in the main city. He also told me I HAVE to get a sofabed WITH STORAGE and washable covers that is also UNDER $800 USD

              Like Black person all the Ikea sofas that fit those requirements have horrible reviews except the expensive ones .. and now he's going to waive the washable cover requirement so we can get it from some random website for cheap

              The washable cover requirement is like the one thing I actually needed due to dogsmell

              So now I have to have a worthless POS in my apartment

              We already have two bedrooms with two beds, one of which I won't use the bed on. So I told them they can obviously sleep on the other queen size bed when they visit.

              But theyre stubborn af and said "I'm not buying a new sofa when you have kids and need the parents in law to visit" and shit like that

              Like Black person I'm 26 and I don't even want kids

              Also they always buy cheap garbage and then it breaks in a month and I have to deal with it

              Anyway I currently don't have a job or money saved up and I don't have the desire or time to go apartment hunting

              I would have to rent and they don't allow animals so I'm fricked

    I've always just heard that they should run the longest length of the room, which both looks more aestically pleasing and is generally easier to boot. Sounds like that probably jives here anyway.

    the floor and tiles are never going to be the same size
    it would look much worse parallel because the edges will stagger along that diagonal cut
    perpendicular is absolutely going to look better.
    but it also depends on the sizes of each room.
    typically narrow rooms you lay length to length, so your photo is awful because it tricks the eye into the living room being narrow.
    post a better picture.

      Your dad gets it

      And guy gets it

      It would look horrible parallel, there would be way too many not-exactly-matching lines, and you’d have triangle pieces of laminate near the edge which would make it even worse. Normally the length of the room matters but this is the only way if you have a diagonal edge like this.

      Wondering why it’s there in the first place but we’ll that’s not what you asked

      Are you referring to line spacing? If so, just give it up moron, it has zero to do with redit, and everything to do with personal preference. Like for example, some of the other spergloards throw a fit when a spergloard like yourself does not capitalize the first letter, and puts a period at the end when you feel like it.

        >there is no such thing as reddit spacing
        What they're calling "reddit spacing" is when you hit the return key twice in order to create a space.

        ^Like I just did. You don't have to hit it twice in order to create a new paragraph, but on reddit you have to hit it twice in order for it to break into a new paragraph. This is supposedly a "tell" that the person using this type of spacing is a longtime reddit user.

        I think the whole thing is pretty fricking gay because I was using spacing for the sake of clarity and readability on based chans long before I ever went to reddit. Also, who the frick thinks they can look down on someone based on the platforms they use while they're on a cucked shitbox like PrepHole lmao

            People always have double spaced, I've been here 16 miserable years. There's nothing "inefficient" about double-space. Do you not use two spaces between sentences either? Oh nvm, you don't even use sentences, you just dump a stream of consciousness into a single line, say "yup, looks good!", stumble your way through captcha, and manage to shit your idea out into the world.

            You are completely right about the tile orientation though it would totally look like shit trying to line them parallel. OP, your tales tell of a strange Slavic parent child relationship, but if Daddy is paying for everything just let it go, learn to detach from this shit.

          I'm wondering the average age of the user base on PrepHole is. I had to take composition classes in grade school way back in the day, and they taught us what paragraphs were, and when to use them. Teachers even used a "IP" symbol on their markups of your homework to let you know when you wrote too sizeable block. Nowadays kids just dump 1000 words in I e paragraph with no commas or periods. It's weird to see what I was taught decades ago referred to as something completely different and invented less than 10 years ago, with a negative connotation to boot.

            I think a lot of the "problem" comes from the difference in appearance of a post on PC instead of a phone screen. I'm on a PC and I read rather quickly, so what might look like a wall of text on a phone is really just a couple of reasonable sentences to me.

            In America, an apartment you own is a condo. But condo is really just a marketing term because you can also rent condos.

            condo = condominium. It's attached housing-- but unlike a townhouse, you don't own the land underneath it.

    OP, have you heard of "under my roof, under my rules"?
    If your dad isn't going to show you enough respect (from your POV) then don't choose to live in an apartment that he's paying for. Don't accept gifts or considerations from people that come with strings attached unless you're comfortable accepting the trade-off. You're an adult-- you don't have to live under his roof anymore. You don't have to let him tell you how to live life, UNLESS he's paying for your lifestyle and then he pretty much gets to shit on you as much as he wants.

    If it's not working out well between the two of you, then don't accept his gifts. This is an important life lesson.

      Exactly. An adult is free to forge their own path. They are also 100% responsible for the consequences of their own decisions. That mean's if OP continues to suck on daddy's teat, they continue to live with their dad's controlling tendencies. They are free to change this at any point by simply sacking up and taking a hold of their adult independence.

    I don't know about that. I'd say you want your flooring long grain to parallel a dominant wall. You also don't want different tiles/flooring in the same direction. What your dad is doing is fine.
