Installing a floating floor at an angle - Pros and Cons?

I bought Armstrong laminate flooring for my kitchen, after seeing some of the design shows on TV, I might want to install it at an angle, has anyone in here done this and what are the pros and cons?
My flooring has bevelled edges and foam back from the mfr.
The Armstrong sight does not have any info on this type of installation.
Would an angled install use a lot more wood?
I have a table saw and compound miter saw.
I assume the angle is 45.
TIA.

Theoretically, it should take exactly the same amount of material. In fact, it takes a little more due to waste. If you have never done this before, it can be tricky to not waste a lot of material. If you are careful and do a little prior planning, you won't use much more material than in a straight installation.
Put this thought in your head to start: start with a longer piece (assuming these are random length) and cut it in half on the 45. Use one side to start one way, and figure out where you can use the other piece to start in another direction. Think about it, and it will come to you.
